What You Should Know about Gum DiseaseHaving 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.
