What Causes Gum Disease?
There are many causes for gum disease but it is most often caused by poor dental hygiene. Those who do not brush and floss regularly will experience a buildup of plaque, which leads to gum disease. In addition, factors like smoking, poor diet, piercings, and family history can contribute to gum problems and cause more damage.
Some mouths are also prone to gum disease or deterioration due to certain ligaments being tighter, shorter, or looser than they should be in an ideal mouth. Regardless of good dental habits or optimal diet, certain mouths simply need routine gum treatment.
How Does Gum Therapy Work?
If caught early, gum disease can be managed, and our team at Culp Dental can establish a plan for your treatment. More advanced gum disease may require gum therapy to help you restore your oral health. Also known as scaling or root planing, gum therapy cleans between your teeth and gums, down to the root. Our highly effective method removes the plaque and tartar buildup that has accumulated above and below the gumline. Once the buildup is gone, the gums can then heal and return to their normal, healthy state. The full process may take more than one visit, depending on the severity of your condition.
