Gum Disease and Bad Breath

Periodontal Treatment (Gum Care)

Periodontal treatment is a procedure where a periodontist lifts your gums to remove excess tartar buildup that has gotten inside your gums. When you suffer from gum diseases like gingivitis (which causes irritation and inflammation of your gingiva, a part of your gum), pay attention to it immediately before it progresses into periodontitis (a severe form of gum disease that requires immediate action). If this issue is left unresolved, it may result in tooth loss and other serious health issues.

Halitosis (Bad Breath Care)

Are you worried about bad breath? The first step to figuring out what’s causing your bad breath is identifying what’s going on with yourself. Often, halitosis occurs because of medications, infections, dry mouth, and the most common factor, poor dental hygiene. To remedy this dental issue, you should work on improving your overall hygiene by brushing, flossing, scraping your tongue, and avoiding certain foods more often.

Scaling and Root Planing

If you have gingivitis or periodontitis, this treatment is perfect for you. Scaling and root planing involves deep cleaning your gums and scooping out excessive tartar buildup trapped inside your gums. You may be wondering, does this procedure hurt? Not-to-worry! When you undergo scaling and root planing, your dentist will administer anesthesia to prevent a painful experience. However, you may feel some discomfort during your recovery period.
