Detection and Treatment of Gum Diseases in Saint John

Did you know that gum diseases, which are very common among adult patients, can occur at any age? They usually do not cause any pain until they get serious and can lead to teeth loss. Fortunately, they can be prevented and cured through periodontal treatment. To benefit from professional gum disease treatments in Saint John, you just need make an appointment at Hi-Tech Family Dentistry!

How Do Gum Diseases Appear?

Gum diseases occur where gums and teeth are attached. The problem begins with plaque that forms everyday on your teeth and must be removed with brushing and flossing. If not properly removed, plaque hardens into tartar, the accumulation of which can cause gingivitis (inflammation of gums). This may turn into an infection leading to gum tissue breaking or, even worse, bone breaking.

Preventing Gum Disease

The best way to prevent gum disease from occurring consists in having a good dental hygiene routine: brush your teeth twice a day and floss once every day to remove plaque. When tartar forms, only a professional—dentist or dental hygienist—can remove it. If your gum disease gets serious, bone and gum tissue restoration (periodontal) procedures may be required. Your dentist is the most appropriate professional to evaluate your situation and advise the best course of action. At Hi-Tech Family Dentistry, we have the required technology to conduct a thorough examination and proceed to periodontal interventions.
