Gum disease

Gum disease unfortunately, is considered an endemic today with its main cause being inadequate oral hygiene (plaque, tartar buildup, food remnants).Gum disease

There are, of course, other causes as well:

  • flawed fillings, inlays, onlays
  • congested teeth
  • chewing on one side
  • genetic or hormonal factors
  • medications
  • angst
  • stress
  • smoking, etc.

There are numerous types of gum disease. In later stages the alveolar bone (the bone tissue holding the teeth) can disintegrate for various reasons, which may lead to the loosening of the given tooth or even its loss.

In more severe cases, the dental treatment of the affected alveolar bone can be done by surgery, but in most cases a less obtrusive solution is provided by a diode laser which sends a 200 micron beam into the infected areas.

To avoid gum disease, it is very important to concentrate on its prevention, the basis of which is careful oral hygiene, regular checkups at your dentist, and the removal of plaque and tartar from the teeth by a dentist or dental hygienist.
