Severity of Gingivitis

Why is oral hygiene in Cypress so important?

Bacteria found in plaque produce toxins or poisons that irritate the gums, which may cause them to turn red, swell, and bleed easily. If this irritation is prolonged, the gums separate from the teeth, causing pockets (spaces) to form. As periodontal diseases progress, the supporting gum tissue and bone that hold teeth in place deteriorate. If left untreated, this leads to tooth loss. Periodontal diseases can be accelerated by a number of different factors. However, it is mainly caused by the bacteria found in dental plaque, a sticky colorless film that constantly forms on your teeth. If not carefully removed by daily brushing and flossing, plaque hardens into a rough, porous substance known as calculus (or tartar). Daily brushing and flossing will keep dental calculus to a minimum, but a professional cleaning will remove calculus in places your toothbrush and floss have missed. The best way to prevent gum disease is effective daily brushing and flossing as well as regular professional examinations and cleanings. Unfortunately, even with the most diligent home dental care, people still can develop some form of periodontal disease. Once this disease starts, professional intervention is necessary to prevent its progress.

"Gingivitis Can Be Prevented and Treated"

"Gingivitis Can Be Prevented and Treated"

Our doctor talks about prevention and treatment of gingivitis in Cypress

"Periodontal disease is a serious infection under your gum line. ARESTIN (minocycline hydrochloride) is an antibiotic that kills the bacteria that cause the infection. It’s placed directly in the infected areas or pockets in your gums right after scaling and root planing, the dental procedure that disrupts stubborn plaque and bacteria below your gum line where brushing and flossing can’t reach. ARESTIN starts working quickly, right at the source of infection and keeps fighting bacteria long after you leave the dental office. ARESTIN fights infection and inflammation for 30 days, and provides significantly better results than scaling and root planning alone for up to 90 days."
