What Is Gingivitis?

According to the CDC, “47.2% of adults aged 30 years and older have some form of periodontal disease”. It is the leading cause of tooth loss. The first form gum disease is typically gingivitis. The good news is gingivitis is reversible, if caught in time and treated correctly. This is why it’s important to schedule an appointment now if you are experiencing any of the signs of gum disease. Periodontitis is a more advanced form of gum disease. As the gums separate from the teeth due to the plaque continuing to spread and growth beneath the gum line, pockets are formed between the teeth. Over time the bones are destroyed, leading to tooth loss.

When periodontitis is advanced enough, it can not be reversed but can be managed. This is why it is imperative to make an appointment as soon as possible to save your natural teeth and heal the infection in your gums before it worsens.

 

Symptoms of Gingivitis

  • Bleeding Gums - This may happen when brushing/flossing, but also eating hard food.
  • Sensitive Gums - If your gums are sensitive to cold 
  • Bad Breath (also called halitosis)
  • Issues with the fit of partial dentures

If you are experiencing, any of the above symptoms, don’t wait - schedule an appointment to get relief now.

While poor dental care is the major factor in developing gingivitis or more advanced gum disease - there are other risk factors as well, including pregnancy, diabetes, genetics, and certain medications.

Gingivitis Diagnosis

While searching for signs of gingivitis is a part of a routine examination at Bradenton Family and Implant Dentistry, it’s important not to wait if you are experiencing symptoms now.

When diagnosing gingivitis, one of our Bradenton based dentists will measure the size of the pockets around your tooth. The severity of your gum disease is determined by how deep the pockets are. They will also examine your bite, the receding level of your gums, and if any teeth are loose.

Additionally, dental X-rays will help them see the severity of bone loss. If you are a returning patient at Bradenton Family and Implant Dentistry or have access to previous records, they can study the changes in your bones over time. Our team is trained on state-of-the-art X-ray equipment to give our dentists a full and accurate picture of your oral health.

How Much Does Gingivitis Treatment Cost

As each gingivitis treatment plan is individualized, the ultimate cost is influenced by various factors. These factors encompass the current state of your teeth and gums, and your insurance coverage.

How To Avoid Gingivitis

To prevent gingivitis and maintain optimal oral health, it's crucial to adhere to a consistent dental hygiene routine. This includes brushing your teeth at least twice daily with quality toothpaste and using dental floss or interdental brushes to clean between teeth and along the gumline. Additionally, regular visits to the dentist for professional cleanings and check-ups are essential.

Extractions

While many of us do our best to keep our teeth healthy, sometimes a tooth needs to be taken out to keep you healthy. In these cases, an extraction is necessary.

Emergency Dentistry

You never know when a dental emergency will happen. Thankfully, Bradenton Family and Implant Dentistry is Bradenton’s most trusted Dental Emergency team. We have a team of dental experts to serve you.

Orthodontics

Traditional braces are still an effective option to correct the alignment of your teeth. Modern traditional braces are smaller, smoother, and significantly more comfortable than those previously available. Modern braces are an excellent option for creating a healthier and happier smile. There are more benefits to straightening your teeth than just creating a more confident smile. Straight teeth are easier to clean, which lowers your risk of tooth decay and gum disease. And, by aligning your bite, you can help solve structural problems that create jaw pain and chewing difficulty.

Sedation Dentistry

A drug-induced depression of consciousness during which patients respond purposefully to verbal commands, either alone or accompanied by light tactile stimulation. No interventions are required to maintain a patent airway, and spontaneous ventilation is adequate. Cardiovascular function is usually maintained.

Oral Cancer Screening

The inside of the mouth is normally lined with a special type of skin (mucosa) that is smooth and coral pink in color. Any alteration in this appearance could be a warning sign for a pathological process. The most serious of these is oral cancer.

We recommend performing an oral cancer self-examination monthly and remember that your mouth is one of your body’s most important warning systems. Do not ignore suspicious lumps or sores.

Scaling and Root Planing

Scaling is a [non-surgical] deep cleaning measure that includes removing plaque from above and below the gumline. The root is also smoothened through planing to allow the tissue to heal and reattach itself to the tooth. Local anesthesia is applied to numb the targeted area and make the procedure much more comfortable. Antibiotics may be recommended as a means of controlling the toxic bacteria from spreading further that cause periodontitis.

Bone Grafting

Bone grafting can repair implant sites with inadequate bone structure due to previous extractions, gum disease or injuries. The bone is either obtained from a tissue bank or your own bone is taken from the jaw, hip or tibia (below the knee). Sinus bone grafts are also performed to replace bone in the posterior upper jaw.

Periodontal Disease Treatment

Periodontal disease is an infection caused by the bacteria found in plaque, the thin biofilm that constantly forms around our teeth. In response to these bacteria, our immune system produces toxins. Unfortunately, these toxins also target our gums and other supportive tissues, resulting in the infection known as periodontal disease. Without treatment, periodontal disease can have serious consequences for your oral health.
