Regular dental checkups are an excellent way to keep good care of your oral and dental health. A general dentist may refer you to a dental specialist called a “Periodontist” if you have any advanced gums and bone disease. A gum specialist or Periodontist is the right dentist to deal with all kinds of gum problems. The benefits and importance of consulting a Periodontist:
Healthy gums never bleed. Gum disease, or periodontal disease, occurs when you have poor oral hygiene, and ignore the initial symptoms of gums disease called gingivitis or simply bleeding gums and bad breath. When gingivitis is left untreated, it progresses to such an extent to cause damage to your periodontal tissues, resulting in increased tooth mobility and tooth loss.
Periodontists are gum specialists; they have expertise and knowledge for the best management of your gum and periodontal disease.
Sometimes you notice that bleeding from gums didn’t stop even after having scaling from a general dentist. Have you ever wondered why it happens? The answer is you need simply extra care for the management of your advanced gum disease. Periodontists have additional skills and experience in dealing with such a case. They perform a deep-cleaning procedure called scaling and root planing to ensure your teeth get cleaned beneath the gum line and firms get attached with the underlying bone.
When inflammation of gums called “gingivitis” goes on unnoticed it may convert into a lethal condition called “periodontitis”, when this happens it causes extensive damage to the surrounding tissues of the teeth resulting in increased tooth mobility, and eventually, the teeth are lost.
Only the Periodontist can help you halt the progression of the advanced periodontal disease. At Royal Dental USA, we got the best periodontist in Houston for the management of gum problems.
