You can effectively respond to gingivitis and prevent the infection from worsening. With the right actions taken, this problem can be reversed, keeping your gums safe from oral bacteria. Unfortunately, when the appropriate care is not provided, the consequences can be lasting. Our Encinitas/San Diego, CA periodontal practice can help you avoid long-term issues that can occur when gingivitis is not treated effectively. We can perform a diagnostic to determine how serious your condition is, and from there we can discuss either preventive services to reverse gingivitis or treatments to combat periodontal disease.
Do You Have A History Of Problems With Your Periodontal Health?
Has it been a struggle for you to fight periodontal problems? Some people experience gingivitis frequently, or they are slow to respond to the signs of an infection, which can lead to complications. If you are not confident in the condition of your gums for any reason, you should look for ways to deal with the matter effectively. Those who do not can wind up with an advanced infection that raises their risk for tooth loss. The bacteria responsible for your condition can also make you more vulnerable to issues that concern your general health.
Behavioral Changes That Lower Your Risk For Gingivitis
There are actions that you can take to fight gingivitis and stop future infections. People who use tobacco are more vulnerable to infections. Cutting this product out can benefit you in several ways, which means better gum health is just one reason to leave this habit behind. Generally speaking, a better oral hygiene routine will help you fight accumulating bacteria that cause issues to develop.
A Receding Gum Line Can Make You More Vulnerable To Infections
Your ability to fight periodontal problems can be impaired by a receding gum line. In addition to this issue making you more vulnerable to gingivitis, it can lead to sensitivity problems, and it can negatively affect your smile. By relying on the Pinhole Surgical Technique, we can provide a less invasive solution to problems with gum line recession. This service relies on advanced dental lasers to conservatively move tissues in a process that does not require suturing. At the end of treatment, you can feel more confident in your smile and have an easier time defending against gingivitis.
