Causes of Gum Disease
Gum disease can be caused by many factors, but poor dental hygiene is the main one. Infrequent brushers and flossers will develop plaque accumulation, which results in gum disease. Additionally, things including smoking, a bad diet, body piercings, and family history might aggravate gum issues.
Due to particular ligaments being shorter, tighter, or looser than they should be in an ideal mouth, some mouths are also vulnerable to gum disease or degradation. Regardless of a healthy diet or good dental habits, some mouths only require routine gum care.
How Does Gum Therapy Work?
Our staff at Culp Dental can create a strategy for your treatment if gum disease is detected early. Gum therapy may be necessary to help you regain your oral health if your gum disease is more advanced. Gum therapy, also referred to as scaling or root planing, cleans your teeth and gums from the root up. The plaque and tartar buildup that has developed above and below the gumline is removed using our highly effective technique. The gums can heal and return to their regular, healthy form once the accumulation has been removed. Depending on how severe your problem is, the entire treatment can require more than one visit.
