Gum Treatment in Dubai
Periodontal Disease, commonly known as Gum Disease or Gingivitis, tends to progress gradually, often unnoticed and without causing initial discomfort. It can initiate at any life stage. Symptoms might not manifest until the condition has reached an advanced stage and affected the underlying bone, leading to Periodontitis. This advanced stage results in bone loss and potential tooth loss.
The term gum disease or periodontal disease refers to the gradual deterioration of the tissues that encircle and provide support to the teeth, brought about by the growth of bacteria and the production of harmful factors.
- Gums that bleed
- Unpleasant breath
- Gums that appear red, swollen, and sensitive
- Discharge of pus
- Teeth that feel loose or are separating
- Gums receding from teeth, exposing the roots
Due to these potential warning signs, it is crucial to maintain regular dental checkups and undergo periodontal examinations, ideally every three months. A Periodontist, a specialist dedicated to preventing, diagnosing, and treating periodontal disease, employs the latest techniques and minimally invasive surgical procedures to comprehensively address gum issues.
Recent research has unveiled a connection between gum disease and more severe health conditions such as heart disease, stroke, diabetes, respiratory ailments, and premature, low birth weight infants. A mere teeth cleaning is insufficient to resolve these issues. For accurate diagnosis and effective treatment, the expertise of a specialist is necessary.
If any of the aforementioned symptoms are present, we encourage you to reach out to us to schedule an appointment.
