Bad Breath Treatment (Gum / Periodontal Disease)
Serenity Smiles Dental

Are you suffering from lingering bad breath that just doesn’t go away? Then you could have an early stage gum disease.

Your mouth is a potential breeding ground for bacteria and if you do not brush and floss your teeth twice a day, bacteria can multiply between your teeth and on your tongue.

If these bacteria are not removed, they turn into plaque, which forms toxins that irritate your gums. Serenity Smiles Dental is pleased to offer you the state-of-the-art bad breath treatment in Epping.

What Are The Warning Signs Of Gum Disease?

It is possible for gum disease to be asymptomatic and for you not even being aware that you have it. That is why it is so important to have regular dental check ups with your dentist because he or she has the experience and equipment to assess you professionally.

Once gum disease has reached a more advanced stage it may present with symptoms such as:

● Bleeding, swollen, red or irritated gums
● Gums that bleed when brushed or flossed
● Receding gums, or elongated teeth

What Gum Disease Treatment Options Are Available in Epping?

If your gum disease has not advanced too far, your dentist may recommend minimally invasive procedures to prevent periodontitis from developing further:

Root planing
Root planing will be done to make the surface of the root smoother, so they are less likely to build up bacteria. It also removes the bacteria that cause inflammation and prevents the gum from reattaching to the surface of the tooth.

Scaling
Scaling is done to remove tartar and bacteria from the surface of the tooth and below the gum line.

Antibiotic treatment
Your dentist may prescribe antibiotics to heal the bacterial infection.

If your periodontitis has reached an advanced stage you may require dental surgery. Examples of surgical procedures that may be required include:

Soft tissue grafting
The loss of gum tissue often results in gumline receding. Some of the soft tissue from your palate may be removed and used to reinforce your damaged soft tissue.

Pocket reduction surgery
Small incisions are made in your gums so that the gum tissue can be lifted to expose the roots for scaling and planning.

Bone grafting
If the bone around the root of your tooth has been destroyed a bone graft may be performed. This creates a solid foundation and encourages your natural bone to regrow.

Successful treatment of periodontitis and good dental hygiene habits are generally adequate to manage bad breath. The benefits of treating gum disease include:

● It prevents the spread of infection
● It prevents potential tooth loss
● It protects your tooth roots
● It manages bad breath

Keep Your Mouth Gum Disease-Free

You should brush and floss twice a day with fluoride toothpaste to keep your mouth bacteria-free. You can use an antibacterial mouthwash to keep your mouth minty fresh or choose a sugar-free chewing gum in case you have no access to a toothbrush and a toothpaste .

Regular visits to your dentist are essential to monitor your gum health.
