Having a good periodontist to work on your
gingivitis treatment in the office is important. But, did
you know that there are things you can do at home to help
your treatment result be more successful?
How often you have professional treatments done
is very important to preventing or supplementing your in office
gingivitis treatment. Previously, it was established that
cleaning should be done every six months. That is now what
everyone is used to. Later, it was discovered that six months
is O.k.. for preventing cavities but every three months is
better for your gum health.
Besides the professional gingivitis treatment
you receive in the dentist's office, it is also very important
to pay attention to what you do at home. If you lack
adequate home care, what is done in the office becomes almost
meaningless. You can ask any dental professional and they will
tell you that what you do at home is most important.
Gingivitis has been labeled the 'silent
epidemic' because it really sneaks up on people. Many are not
aware that they have it. The use of tools like oral
irrigators and perio-aids can be very useful in one's home care
routine. There are other things that are also helpful in
maintaining good home care as well.
If you have or think you might have gingivitis,
visit a periodontist. Learn about performing excellent home
care for your gums. More frequent professional cleanings are a
plus. With adequate professional and home care, you stand a
good chance of finding success in fighting off gingivitis and
doing your part to help the dentist's or periodontist's
gingivitis treatment. Excellent home care can even help prevent
gingivitis in the first place!
Lost gum tissue does not normally fully return.
Your periodontist may be able to perform procedures that help.
Restoration is seldom one hundred percent. It is best to
prevent problems or to stop a current problem from becoming
worse. In the future, medical technology may provide us with
more options for gingivitis treatment.
