Gum Treatment

Gum Treatment   Gums cover the bone and surround the neck of the tooth. Plaque is a soft deposit biofilm adherent to the tooth surfaces and dental appliances and is a favourable home for the microorganisms to thrive in mouth. If plaque is allowed to remain on the teeth surfaces then it becomes a mineralised hard structure known as Calculus or Tartar.

 

What is Gum Disease?

Gum Disease is an inflammation of the gums that may progress to affect the bone surrounding teeth. Gum disease is commonly referred to as Periodontal disease in which the tissues surrounding the teeth are affected. It is caused by the collection of the excessive bacteria in the mouth along with their by-products. It is due to the deposition of plaque and calculus on teeth. The three stages of gum disease, from least to most severe, are gingivitis, periodontitis and advanced periodontitis.
