How Gum Disease Gets Diagnosed
Posted on 8/23/2018 by ROOT™ Periodontal and Implant Center
When our patients come into the office, it is our job to figure out what the state of their oral health is. We have to determine what is right about their teeth and gums and what is wrong. Our patients expect us to tell them if they have a problem and what to do about it. They do not always know how we decide that they have a problem with gum disease. These are the ways that we can make this diagnosis and how we can figure out what to do. The Stages of DiagnosisThe diagnosis of gum disease depends on the cause of it. There are many things that can cause gum disease. The most common causes are poor oral hygiene, aggressive brushing and flossing and trauma. In the case of trauma, the problems and signs of gum disease are evident faster. When a person has poor oral hygiene, the signs and problems of gum disease take longer to appear. The time it takes for gum disease to create problems means that the initial diagnosis often falls on the individual. They need to know the signs of a problem and they need to take the time to see one of our dental professionals. Signs of gum disease vary but include pain and sensitivity, gaps and loose teeth, white spots on the gums and bleeding of the gums. Getting a Dental Professional's OpinionOur dental professionals can help with the diagnosis of gum disease. For people who see the dentist regularly, the chances of spotting the gum disease in the early stages are much higher. Our dental professionals look for the same signs of gum disease that a person can look for at home. The difference is that we have the tools and the knowledge to spot problems earlier. Once we see the signs we can look further to determine the extent of the problem. The best way to maintain good oral health and to prevent gum disease is through regular visits with our dental professionals. We can provide help with the proper care for your teeth and help you keep the smile you want for a long time. Contact us at our office to talk about your dental needs and how we can help....
