Let's Talk Gum Disease 

Gum disease is an infection that affects the tissues surrounding and supporting your teeth. It's primarily caused by bacteria present in plaque, a sticky film that forms on the teeth.

If plaque isn't regularly removed through proper oral hygiene practices, it hardens into tartar, which can only be removed by a professional dental cleaning.

Treating Gum Infections 

If you're experiencing any signs or symptoms of gum disease, seeking professional treatment is essential to prevent the condition from worsening. At Blooming Smiles Chicago, we offer comprehensive gum infection treatment tailored to your unique needs. Our team will guide you through the following steps:

Evaluation and Diagnosis: Our skilled dentist will conduct a thorough examination, including measurements of gum pockets, X-rays, and a discussion of your symptoms and medical history.

Non-surgical Treatment: In many cases, gum disease can be effectively treated without surgery. We'll create a personalized treatment plan, which may include deep cleaning techniques like scaling and root planing.

Scaling and Root Planing: This nonsurgical procedure involves removing plaque and tartar from above and below the gumline. We'll also smooth the tooth roots to eliminate bacteria and promote healing, allowing your gums to reattach to your teeth properly.

Maintenance and Follow-up: After your gum infection treatment, we'll provide detailed instructions on maintaining optimal gum health at home. We'll also schedule regular check-ups and cleanings to monitor your progress and prevent future complications.

The Importance of Gum Care

Taking care of your gums is about more than just preserving your smile – it's a vital aspect of maintaining your overall health and well-being. Let's explore the top three reasons why prioritizing gum care is better for your long-term health and well-being:

Preserve Your Teeth for Life
Did you know that gum disease is one of the primary causes of tooth loss in adults? By giving your gums the care they deserve, you're not only ensuring the stability and longevity of your teeth but also maintaining a functional and beautiful smile that lasts a lifetime.
Safeguard Your Health
The connection between gum disease and various systemic health conditions is undeniable. Studies have shown that gum disease is linked to heart disease, diabetes, respiratory problems, and even complications during pregnancy. By maintaining your gums, you're actively reducing the risk of developing these serious health issues and promoting overall well-being.
Enhance Your Smile
There's no denying that healthy gums play a crucial role in a beautiful smile. When you maintain proper gum care, your gums stay pink, firm, and free from inflammation, enhancing the aesthetics of your smile. Showcasing a confident, vibrant smile becomes effortless when you prioritize the well-being of your gums.

Frequently Asked

Can gum disease be reversed?

While completely reversing gum disease may not be possible, rest assured that it can be managed and controlled with proper treatment and ongoing care. The good news is that early-stage gum disease, known as gingivitis, can be reversed through professional dental cleanings and improved oral hygiene practices. We're here to guide you every step of the way.

How is gum disease treated?

The treatment for gum disease depends on its severity. For milder cases, non-surgical techniques such as deep cleaning (scaling and root planing) can work wonders. These procedures involve removing plaque and tartar from above and below the gumline. In more advanced cases, our expert team may recommend surgical interventions like gum surgery or bone grafting to provide the comprehensive care needed.

Is gum disease linked to other health conditions?

Research suggests that gum disease is associated with several systemic health conditions, including heart disease, diabetes, respiratory problems, stroke, preterm birth, and low birth weight. Your gum health plays a vital role in your overall well-being. By preventing and treating gum disease, you can take an active step towards reducing the risk of developing these serious health issues.

How can I prevent gum disease?

We believe in empowering you to maintain a healthy smile. It all starts with adopting good oral hygiene habits. Here are some simple yet effective practices to incorporate into your daily routine:

  • Brush your teeth twice a day with a soft-bristled toothbrush
  • Floss daily to remove plaque and debris from between your teeth
  • Use an antimicrobial mouthwash to help control bacteria
  • Visit your dentist regularly for professional cleanings and check-ups
  • Maintain a balanced diet and limit sugary foods and drinks
  • Say no to tobacco products

By embracing these habits, you can significantly reduce the risk of developing gum disease and take control of your oral health.

When should I see a dentist for gum disease?

Your gum health matters, and if you experience any symptoms of gum disease or notice changes in your gums, it's important to schedule an appointment with your caring dentist or periodontist. They will evaluate your condition, provide an accurate diagnosis, and recommend appropriate treatment options tailored to your specific needs.
