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 Gamble & Kingry Family Dentistry, it’s important not to wait if you are experiencing symptoms now.

When diagnosing gingivitis, one of our Ashford 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 Gamble & Kingry Family 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 To Properly Brush & Floss

Brushing and flossing are of paramount importance to oral hygiene. Though bi-annual professional dental cleanings remove plaque, tartar, and debris, excellent homecare methods are equally valuable.

Fluoride Treatment

Fluoride is the most effective agent available to help prevent tooth decay. It is a mineral that is naturally present in varying amounts in almost all foods and water supplies. The benefits of fluoride have been well known for over 50 years and are supported by many health and professional organizations.

Digital X-Rays

Dental Bridges

A safe, low-risk way to replace one or more missing teeth. Natural teeth or dental implants can be used as anchors to support the suspended replacement teeth.

Dental Crowns

Decay or trauma can cause loss of tooth structure and can compromise function as well as esthetics.

This “full coverage” restoration can strengthen your tooth and in the hands of an expert can provide a long-lasting esthetic and functional result.

Dental Exams And Cleanings

There are two parts to your Gamble & Kingry Family dental visit – examination and cleaning. Your exam will check for cavities, plaque, and tartar on your teeth.

Sealants are a thin, protective coating that bonds to the surface of your teeth. When properly applied, sealants can help prevent cavities.

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.

Fillings

Dental fillings are the most conservative way to restore smaller areas of tooth decay. In a dental experts hand, these types of restorations can be made to conserve as much of your natural tooth as possible while providing a restoration that is almost indistinguishable from the natural tooth. Both resin and porcelain fillings can be adhesively bonded to your natural tooth to add strength.

Root Canal Therapy

A root canal is a minimally invasive, nonsurgical endodontic treatment. The procedure is performed under local anesthesia and involves opening the crown of the tooth, exposing the roots and pulp of the tooth. When the pulp and root is exposed the infected areas of the tooth are removed.

Teeth Whitening

Let our team help you determine what whitening process is right for you, based on the current color and condition of your teeth.

Veneers

A wafer-thin glass shell that can be bonded to the front of your teeth to mask their shape, color, or size. The highest quality veneers are made individually by hand and are hard to distinguish from natural teeth. veneers can be used to remarkably transform the smile of patients who have worn, chipped, or discolored teeth. Slightly crooked teeth can be straightened as well. Hand-made porcelain veneers are typically very translucent and when bonded to your teeth they are very lifelike.
