Gum Disease Treatments in Revere Massachusetts

Gum disease can either be categorized as gingivitis or periodontitis depending on the severity — but both need to be addressed as soon as possible by our Revere dentist. According to a study performed by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, an estimated 64.7 million American adults had some form of gum disease. If left untreated, gum disease can lead to diabetes, heart disease, osteoporosis, pneumonia and even cancer.

The best solution for preventing or treating gum disease is to see a dentist in your area that can detect signs of gum disease and provide treatment options. Contact us for dental appointments in Revere Massachusetts. 

What Causes Gum Disease?

Gum disease can have many causes. Some risks for gum disease are not completely control. For example, some underlying health conditions, medicines we take, or our own genetics can increase the risk of gum disease and other oral health issues. But there also many factors that are completely under our control. Common causes of gum disease like gingivitis or periodontitis include:

  • Not Brushing/Flossing: Brushing and flossing your teeth is one of the most important ways to protect them. Gum disease can be caused when plaque and bacteria are left at the gumline. Forgetting to floss is a common cause of gum disease. 
  • Diet: Many foods and beverages can increase the risk of gum disease. For example, things that are acidic or sugary can damage the teeth and gums. In the inverse, some foods can provide the nutrients needed to protect our teeth and gums. Eating healthy especially when it comes to fruits and vegetables can help protect our teeth.
  • Smoking: Tobacco products can have serious adverse effects on your health. This is especially true for your oral health. Chewing tobacco or smoking can cause significant damage to the inside of your mouth. 
  • Not Seeing A Dentist: Regular cleanings are the strongest line of defense against gum disease and dental decay. Seeing a dentist twice per year prevents issues from growing unchecked.

The best way to prevent dental decay and gum disease is with a quick trip to the dentist. Seeing your dentist twice a year can make sure that plaque and bacteria never have a long period of time to go unchecked. Not only that, but x-rays and cleanings can find signs of decay and prevent decay in the future.

How Do I Know If I Have Gum Disease?

First and foremost, it isn’t always easy to know if you have gum disease or another dental issue. Many dental issues like gum disease or cavities can start to form without providing any obvious symptoms. This is why regular dental exams are so important for your oral health. Beyond that, there are some signs to be aware of. If you notice that your gums bleed frequently when you brush and floss, this is often a sign of infection. Other common signs include red, puffy gums, gums receding, and soreness around the gum line.
