The foundation for all of your teeth is formed by the gums, bones, and ligaments around them. These are also known as the periodontium. If the foundation of your teeth becomes unhealthy, it can seriously jeopardize the health of your teeth as well, in the same way that a poor foundation can jeopardize the stability of your house. You may be a candidate for Non surgical gum treatment.
If your periodontium is unhealthy, it can cause a number of uncomfortable and even painful dental issues. Signs something is wrong include: gums that are red, sore, swollen, or bleed easily, persistent bad breath that doesn’t seem to be caused by anything in your diet or poor oral hygiene, gums pulling away from the teeth (receding gum line), loose teeth, and changes in the position of your teeth or overall bite. While these problems can be serious, proper gum treatments can help return your gums to health.

Non surgical gum treatment usually includes a deep cleaning of your teeth and gums. Unlike a regular cleaning, your dentist will generally numb your mouth, and may take several visits (usually one for each quadrant of your mouth). A deep cleaning will involve planing of the root and scaling the teeth, and you will most likely have some local antibiotics applied. If not properly treated, the gum disease may progress to the point that you need dental surgery or tooth extractions.
After non surgical gum treatment, you may experience some discomfort or slight swelling. You will need to avoid brushing and flossing vigorously to allow your gums time to recover and heal. Your teeth may remain sensitive to hot or cold foods for a short time, and your dentist will most likely recommend a special toothpaste that can alleviate this issue.
