Treatments For Gum Disease

Gingivitis in Oxnard is easy to reverse if you catch it in the early stages

Early stage gum disease in Oxnard is known as gingivitis. This is often treatable with non-surgical treatment like prescription mouthwash, tooth scaling and root planning (known as a deep cleaning), all of which help to clean the affected tooth root surface. Once gum disease advances however, gum surgery is often the only viable treatment option. Over time, plaque combines with minerals naturally occurring in the mouth to form tartar. Tartar is much harder than plaque, and much more difficult to remove. Tartar adheres to the rough surfaces of a tooth, especially to the tooth roots, and is an excellent breeding ground for the bacterial plaque that leads to tooth decay, gum disease, and tooth loss, requiring implants or possibly dentures. If you have any questions about gingivitis in Oxnard, we have staff members available 24/7 to take your call or schedule your appointment at (805) 988-2250.

What is Gingivitis?

Learn about periodontal disease in Oxnard: what it is and how to prevent it

Gingivitis is an infection in the gums, also known as a periodontal infection, and it is most commonly caused by poor oral hygiene. In its early stages, gingivitis is easily treated. If left untreated, gingivitis can lead to more serious gum infections like periodontal disease in Oxnard, tooth loss, and even loss of jaw bone structure. Gingivitis is a common condition amongst children as well as adults, and is the most common cause of adult tooth loss. A recent study found that nearly 75% of adults have some form of gingivitis, or gum disease. However, even though gingivitis is so common, you may not even know you have it. Gingivitis in Oxnard does not often cause pain, so many people are not aware it is affecting them. Gingivitis is caused when the bacterial deposits known as plaque build up at and below the gum line. A proper dental hygiene routine is often enough to prevent gingivitis, and a twice-annual dental cleaning is also an important factor in gum disease prevention. Common symptoms of gingivitis include red or swollen gums, chronic bad breath, mouth sores, a bad taste in the mouth, loose teeth, and gum recession. As gingivitis develops into periodontal disease, these symptoms will worsen and become harder to treat. In the majority of cases, gingivitis can be stopped and even reversed with a thorough professional dental cleaning and a good oral hygiene routine, which includes brushing at least twice a day, flossing daily, and using an antiseptic mouth wash.

Know the signs of gum disease in Oxnard to prevent periodontitis

"Unfortunately it is common for the beginning stages of gingivitis to form in your mouth without you even knowing you have it. Gum disease is caused by the bacteria that harms your gums as well as the tissues and bone structure beneath the surface of your gums. When looking for signs of gingivitis or gum disease in Oxnard, search for the following: bleeding gums, bad breath, swollen gums, red gums, sensitive gums, mouth sores and space between your teeth. If you are experiencing any of these signs or symptoms, you should schedule an appointment at Esthetic Smiles for an examination."
