Periodontitis may be the result of neglecting your inflamed gums for too long. Periodontal disease is treated through scaling and planing and localized antibiotics to protect the teeth against further bone loss. Gum inflammation, also known as gingivitis, can progress to periodontitis if bacteria-filled pockets around the teeth are not cleaned immediately. Gingivitis can be reversed through proper oral hygiene, regular dental visits, healthy diet, and adequate hydration.
Bad breath treatment will depend on the cause of the halitosis, which can be acid reflux, cavities, diabetes, or periodontal disease. Aside from unpleasant smells, other symptoms of halitosis include thick saliva, whitened tongue, and a dry mouth. Some people may deal with bad breath even after brushing, which is why it’s important to visit your dentist for regular cleanings.
Dental plaque or plaque psoriasis affects millions of Americans and is caused by sticky bacteria from sugars. Dental plaque creates tartar buildup which can lead to gingivitis or periodontal disease over time, so it’s important to maintain good oral hygiene.
Scaling and root planing is an effective deep cleaning procedure to remove hard plaque buildup (or calculus) below the gumline and from deep pockets around the teeth. This procedure is designed to prevent the progression of gum disease, and shield against further bone loss and loosening of the teeth.
