Gingivitis Treatments

About half of American adults suffer from some form of periodontal disease. This means that if you’re reading this, there’s a 50% chance that you are at least in the early stages of periodontal disease. Even though that may sound scary, the good news is that early detection of gingivitis (a primary phase of the disease) and thorough professional cleanings can help you steer clear of the dangers of advanced periodontal disease. At Applewood Dental, we aim to keep your teeth healthy and protected with our gingivitis treatments and professional cleanings.

What is Gingivitis?

Gingivitis is a mild form of gum disease caused by a bacterial infection of the gum tissue. The common symptoms of gingivitis are irritation, swelling, and redness in the top section of the gum that surrounds the teeth.

Why Do I Need Professional Teeth Cleanings?

Professional teeth cleanings play a pivotal role in not just preventing gingivitis and other forms of gum disease, but also protecting your overall dental health. Try as you may, it’s almost impossible to get the same level of clean at home as you can at a dental office, especially in those hard-to-reach places.

What’s more, the bacterial and plaque buildup that triggers gingivitis gets caked onto the surface of the teeth and it’s very difficult to remove with regular brushing. During a professional cleaning, we can scrape off the film and prevent more advanced stages of gum disease.
