Many adults suffer from gum diseases and have experienced several appointments to the dentists and different treatments at a certain time. Gingivitis is the early stage of gum diseases and can be treated in a short period of time. But what about the complications of gum diseases? Our dentists in Dubai are at your disposal with information about the necessary treatments for gum diseases. Also, they can offer other treatments for any dental problem you might have.
Dealing with periodontitis, the most severe gum disease
As it is known, the gum disease appears when the dental plaque develops on the teeth, a sticky dental film full of bacteria, and there is no sufficient oral care to protect the denture. The first stage of a gum disease is the gingivitis and starts with bleeding gums, soreness, and overall uncomfortable sensation. If the oral hygiene doesn’t exist, and there is no treatment offered in this sense, then gingivitis turns into periodontitis, the final and the most severe stage of the gum disease. This involves a dental plaque and tartar beneath the gums which affects the roots of the teeth. Bacteria have the full path to attack the denture and the patient can lose the teeth, can develop gum abscesses and can deal with receding gums. In our modern dental clinics in Dubai, there are numerous patients who come when periodontitis made enough damage for which the treatment is complicated and might prolong. Dental implants in Dubai are often suggested for adults who suffered from tooth loss after dealing with periodontitis.
Dealing with acute necrotizing ulcerative gingivitis
Another complication of the gum disease is the ANUG or the acute necrotizing ulcerative gingivitis. This is also called by the Dubai dentists one of the seven kinds or periodontitis which involves gingival pain, bleeding gums, ulceration of the inter-dental papillae and of course overall severe pain. If you deal with bleeding gums, abscess and any other sensation that might seem inappropriate, it is strongly recommended to see the dentist as soon as possible. After a complete dental check-up, the dentist in Dubai can offer the needed treatment, starting with root scaling and planning. It is highly important to prevent the recurrence of the gum disease, and this is part of the dentists’ job.
Other complication you need to know
According to several studies, gum diseases left untreated may lead to lung infections, premature labor in pregnant women, cardiovascular disease and even osteoporosis in elderly people. Please keep in mind that a good and proper oral hygiene as a daily habit will keep you away from developing gum diseases or related complications. Visit your dentist from time to time and protect the health of your denture as much as possible.
