it is difficult to recover!
Gum disease is so common that more than 80% of adults have symptoms.
Although most think of gum disease as something you can simply watch, it should be treated as soon as it is detected even before symptoms appear. Most often, if gum disease is left untreated, it will directly lead to loss of teeth. In addition, gum disease has been shown to be linked to cardio-vascular diseases.
Symptoms of Gum Disease
Bleeding and Pain: When you eat or brush your teeth, you may get excessive bleeding or pain from your gums.
Bad Breath: Plaque built up underneath the gums can lead to bad breath.
Gum Recession: Your gums may begin to disappear, making it difficult to cover and support the teeth by loss of gums and bones.
Mobile Teeth: Inflammation (gingivitis or periodontitis) can weaken the gums and bone underneath, causing teeth to move.
Treatment of Gum Disease
Don’t delay treatment!
Root Canal Treatment (Endodontics)
Tooth decay is when bacteria eat away at your teeth. These bacteria eat sugar from the mouth and create acid that dissolves tooth enamel. They usually begin in the fine grooves of your teeth and if left untreated, can create a large hole in your teeth.
Progression of Tooth Decay
How To Treat Tooth Decay
Difficulty of extraction depends on the location and angulation of the tooth and the location of the nerve in relation to the wisdom tooth. A CBCT( Cone- beam CT Scan) may be taken in advance to properly prepare for surgery.
