    What Causes Gum Disease and Gingivitis

    Our oral cavity harbors millions of microbes, many of which are beneficial to our oral health, while others may cause harm. When we eat or drink, the harmful oral bacteria combine with food residues and saliva to form a sticky layer on the tooth surfaces called plaque.

    Normally, you can remove plaque with routine brushing and flossing. However, a lack of proper oral hygiene may cause plaque to harden, resulting in tartar deposits. These are much harder to clean and can cause gingivitis (inflammation of the gum tissues).

    Gum Disease

    Gingivitis is the early stage of gum disease. At this stage, you can revert the symptoms with proper oral care. If it progresses, it can lead to periodontal or gum disease that affects the supportive foundation of the teeth.

    That’s why our Wake Forest, NC, team offers routine evaluations and treatment for gingivitis and gum disease to maintain your oral health.

    Signs and Symptoms of Gum Disease

    The early signs of gingivitis are mild and often revert with oral hygiene maintenance. Lack of routine oral care may result in the progression of gum disease, causing one or more of these symptoms:

    • Redness or swelling of the gums
    • Gum bleeding
    • Tenderness of the gums
    • Increased tooth sensitivity
    • Gum recession
    • Deep gum pockets
    • Difficulty in eating food
    • Dull ache in the gums
    • Changed in bite
    • Bad breath
    • Tooth mobility
    • Tooth loss

    If you notice any of these signs and symptoms, schedule an appointment with our dentists as early as possible. We will evaluate your oral health and recommend the best treatment options for gingivitis and gum disease in Wake Forest, NC.

    Gum Disease Treatment

    As an essential part of your routine dental checkups, we will examine your periodontal health. If early signs of gingivitis or gum disease are present, our Wake Forest team will utilize non-invasive measures to restore your oral health.

    Basic dental cleaning is often beneficial for those with early-stage gum disease. If you have deeper plaque or tartar deposits, we may perform deep dental cleaning (scaling and root planing) to control the progression of this condition.

    Patients who have lost one or more teeth due to gum disease and are considering tooth replacement can benefit from our bone grafting procedure. It is a minimally invasive technique that can help rebuild the lost bone structure and enhance your oral health.

    Dr Omad and his staff were fantastic. As someone with some dental anxiety, I can say he made me feel completely comfortable. I was able to schedule appointments for me and my kids within the week. There was pretty much no wait time in the office.
