What Causes Gum Disease?
Numerous things, including poor dental hygiene, can lead to gum disease. Regular brushing and flossing prevent plaque buildup, which causes gum disease. Gum problems may also be made worse by factors like smoking, a poor diet, body piercings, and family history.
Some people are also susceptible to gum disease or degeneration because some ligaments are shorter, tighter, or looser than they should be in a healthy mouth. Some mouths just need routine gum care, regardless of a balanced diet or good dental habits.
In the event that gum disease is identified early, our team at Culp Dental can develop a plan for your treatment. If your gum disease is more severe, gum therapy may be necessary to help you regain your oral health. Your teeth and gums are cleaned from the root up during gum therapy, also known as scaling or root planing. Our efficient method removes the plaque and tartar buildup that has occurred above and below the gumline. Once the accumulation has been eliminated, the gums can mend and take on their normal, healthy shape. Depending on how serious your issue is, it can take more than one appointment to complete the therapy.
