Early Periodontitis

Early Periodontitis
    • If left untreated, the gum infection damages the bone
    • and supporting tissues. Your gum separates from the tooth and the bone level deteriorates.
  • More pronounced gingival bleeding, swelling
  • Gums may begin to pull away from teeth
  • Bad breath/taste
  • Pocket depth measure slightly more than normal at                                        up to 5mm deep

Moderate Periodontitis

  • Bleeding and swollen gums with pockets that will
  • measure up to 6mm and more.
  • Teeth may look longer due to gum recession.
  • Recession of bone beginning to appear-moderate bone loss.
  • Gum boils or abscesses may develop.
  • Bad breath, bad taste.
  • Teeth may begin to drift and show spaces.

Advanced Periodontitis

Advanced Periodontitis

Your gums recede farther and separate. Pus may develop, bone loss continues, and your teeth may loosen or fall out.

  • Teeth may become mobile or loose.

Gum Disease Treatment in New Delhi India.

Once Dr. Amit Goswami and Dr. Vandana Goswami at Delhi Dental Center for Periodontal Gum Disease Treatment Clinic identifies the root cause of periodontal disease, then the goals for treatment of gum diseases are set :-

  • To arrest and control the progress of the gums and periodontal disease
  • To leave the periodontal tissues in an easily maintainable state
  • If possible, to restore the supporting structures, which include bone, gum tissue and ligaments

There are various modalities of treatment by which gum diseases can be treated at Delhi dental center for gums treatment. —

  • Initial Non-Surgical Gums Treatments – Scaling, Root Planing and curettage.
  • Surgical Gum Treatment — Flap Surgery, Guided Tissue Regeneration, Bone Grafting and Bone Augmentation — These are needed for reducing deep pockets that remain underneath the gum after extensive cleaning sessions

In the earlier stages of gum disease, most of the treatment involves scaling, root planning and curettage (cleaning under the gum margins).

In more advanced cases of gum diseases, the treatment may become more complex. If after removal of the deposits, fairly deep pockets remain, they can be eliminated by a minor surgical procedure. In some cases, flap procedures are performed.

The gum tissue in an area is lifted away from the teeth, all the underlying inflamed tissue and calculus are removed, the bone may then be reconstructed to a proper shape and the gum is then replaced to proper position and sutured. Healing of these procedures takes from seven to 21 days and is usually uneventful, although not without some expected post-operative discomfort.

Antibiotics are sometimes prescribed to treat gum inflammation.
