Stages of Gum Disease

August 1, 2018by aestheticsmiles0

What is Gum Disease?

Gum disease is an inflammation of the gum line that can increase to influence the bone that encompasses and support your teeth. The two phases of gum disease are gingivitis and periodontitis.

Signs and Symptoms

Gum disease can be innocuous, so it is essential to know about any of the accompanying indications:

  • Gums that effectively bleed when brushing or flossing.
  • Swollen, red or delicate gums
  • Gums that subside or move away from the tooth
  • Tenacious terrible breath or awful taste in the mouth
  • Loose teeth
  • An adjustment in the way your teeth meet up
  • Visible pus encompassing the teeth and gums
  • Sharp or dull pain when biting meals.
  • Teeth that are excessively sensitive to hot or cold meals.

Stages of Gum Disease

1) Gingivitis:

Gingivitis is the primary phase of gum disease and the most effortless to treat. The immediate reason for gingivitis is plaque – the sensitive, sticky, dull film of bacteria that structures always on the teeth and gums.

If the plaque isn’t evacuated by brushing and flossing daily then it produces toxins that can bother the gum tissue, causing gingivitis. As this is the initial stage of gum disease one can take the gum treatment at the earliest because the bone and connective tissue that hold the teeth are not affected by the bacterias yet. If it is left untreated, the gingivitis stage can progress toward becoming periodontitis and make perpetual harm to your teeth and jaw.

Signs and symptoms of Gingivitis:

Gingivitis incorporate red, swollen, delicate gums that may bleed when you brush. Gum infection is gums that have subsided or pulled far from your teeth, giving your teeth an extended appearance. Gum infection can make pockets between the teeth and gums, where plaque and food can remain together. You will also initially face a bad breath and bad mouth taste because of the gum disease.

2) Periodontitis:

Periodontitis is the second phase of gum disease and it occurs when the primary stage i.e Gingivitis is not cured at its earliest. Periodontitis is essentially a more extreme case, while grouped with the gum disease. In this stage because of the plaque the gum line shrinks, the pockets expand, and you can face the risk of teeth dropping out and can also experience different genuine oral health conditions.

At the point when plaque develops around teeth, it starts to taint the gums, prompting gingivitis and results in the long run gum disease. Apart from these, there are some secondary causes of the gum disease. For ladies, the cause can be hormonal changes because of pregnancy, menopause or month to month feminine cycle that can achieve the advancement of periodontal disease. Certain types of diseases, running from diabetes to HIV, can also affect the immune system and can result in the loss of elasticity in gums.

Signs & Symptoms:

The signs and symptoms of Periodontitis are similar to that of Gingivitis. This will also show the symptoms like swollen gums, the perseverance of bad breath (or having an awful taste in your mouth), moving teeth and the development of pockets between your teeth and your gums.

To get relief from the gum disease visit your dental expert immediately for an expert cleaning and checkup. Your dentist will be able to maintain a strategic distance from periodontal infection by cleaning and inspecting your teeth by recognizing any minor issues before they get genuine. It is preferred to visit your dental expert at the early stage of Gum disease so that the process will become more easiest and painless and your teeth will be more healthy. Regardless of whether you are facing an early gingivitis or the last phases of the periodontal disease, Aesthetic Smiles Dental Clinic can help to make your gum and teeth strong.

As someone who has struggled with juvenile periodontitis since the age of 16, I've worked with dentists around the world, and it was refreshing to find a dentist that I was able to work with directly from beginning to end. Dr. Arora was highly professional, thoughtful, and empathetic throughout the process. I had already started the process and had implants in place, and she helped me with six abutments and a total of 26 crowns. I reached out a few weeks before my trip, and she responded immediately. She took the time to talk through my history, and I could speak with her directly, not one of her assistants. She was very transparent and empathetic to my situation. She addressed my concerns about fees and followed through by not making it about money right when I showed up at her office. She paid attention to every detail and was thorough and getting the job done, and I would recommend her to anyone looking to get some solid work done, whether it be implants or cosmetic work.

Visited for dental facial pain issue, this was a second opinion i needed but the doctor was giving ambiguous answers & was not open to explaining in detail what would be best treatment. Again the answers were confusing and doc was not sure if the treatment would work or not. After having consulted a few docs before i was certain that this condition is not a rare one and facial pain is very common today. Again i was to visit doctor urmi but another dentist in her place consulted me which was surprising as i had no prior knowledge of this. I would appreciate if the doctor showed more enpathy towards the patient.

Visited for dental implants Was looking for a good dental clinic in mumbai , found Dr Ritika online and was quite impressed with her credentials and the reviews on google I was struggling with a old broken bridge with missing teeth . On Consultation with Dr Ritika suggested me immediate dental implants. I had 3 teeth extracted and 3 dental implants place on the same day . The procedure was painless though there was some nagging discomfort for a few days later which is quite normal when you have so much dental work done in one sitting After 4 months the dental implants were restored with 4 ceramic crowns. I happy to be back to enjoying my food. Modern clinic , very professional , affordable and the overall experience at Aesthetic smiles dental clinic is good especially for nervous patients like me who tend to neglect dental treatment Highly recommended

Last year in the month of December I have visited her and she advised me to remove my tooth and then do an implant and I had the most traumatic dental extraction experience, still I kept myself calm thinking that she is well known and experienced doctor and it’s been 5 to 6 months she did not followed up and avoid to reply to my text about the implant, Today i have visited another dentist to my wildest dream, I came to know that she has destroyed my entire jaw bone in the extraction process and no implant is possible now. It’s all big name and low fame, terrible diagnosis and treatment. Please be careful.

I am from the US and was living in Africa when I needed some implants done. My global travel service recommended Dr. Ritika and my experience with her was fantastic! After I moved back to the States, I returned to India specifically to have her do more dental work for me. if not for Covid, I would return to India to finish the implant work she started. Both my dentist and oral surgeon here have commented on the high quality of work I received from her. Her clinic is exceptionally clean and her staff are very nice. Dr. Ritika was also very attentive to my travel needs and even sent cars to pick me up for my appointments. Plus, It costs me less to take a 2-week vacation AND get multiple implants than to get just 1 implant on the US! I highly recommend her, and look forward to when I can go back to visit enchanting India.
