Gingivitis – Part II

So you think you have Gingivitis…now what?

Treatment of Gingivitis

Prompt treatment usually reverses the symptoms of gingivitis and prevents its progression to more serious gum disease, tooth loss and over loss of health.

Effective treatment requires professional Dental care followed by stepped up oral hygiene at home.

Professional gingivitis care includes:

  • An initial evaluation

  • Your initial professional evaluation will include a thorough cleaning with use of dental instruments to remove all traces of plaque and tartar — a procedure known as scaling.

  • Instruction on effective home brushing and flossing techniques

  • Regular professional checkups and cleaning

  • Dental Restorations, if required; fixing crowns or fillings that make good oral hygiene difficult

  • Misaligned teeth or poorly fitting crowns, bridges or other dental restorations irritate your gums and make it harder for you to remove plaque during daily home care.

If problems with your teeth or dental restorations contribute to your gingivitis, your dentist may recommend fixing these problems.

Gingivitis usually clears up after a thorough professional cleaning — as long as you continue good oral hygiene at home. Your dentist will help you plan an effective at-home program.
