What is Gingivitis?


Gingivitis is a common disease in oral and dental health treatments due to caries. Gingivitis, called periodontitis, is a type of inflammation that can occur in the bones surrounding the teeth and in the tissues of the gums.

Gingivitis is usually caused by bacteria in plaque, a sticky, colorless coating that constantly forms on the teeth. It is a serious gum infection that can destroy the bone that supports an individual’s teeth if left untreated. If the infection increases and the inflammation is not treated, it can cause gingival recession. Gum recession (periodontitis) is a process that can cause loosening of teeth or tooth loss. Therefore, it is necessary not to neglect the subject and get information from a dentist as soon as possible.

What are the Symptoms of Gingivitis?

  • Tenderness, redness and swelling in the gums
  • White inflammatory formations
  • Bleeding during brushing or flossing
  • Receding gums
  • Looseness in the teeth
  • Pain when speaking and chewing

What Are Gingivitis Treatment Methods?

It is important to diagnose the disease and to apply treatment methods at the beginning of Gingival Inflammation. In this way, a more serious inflammation is prevented and other consequences can be prevented. The evaluation of a specialist physician is the basic element of the treatment of his disease. Dental cleaning and tartar removal procedures applied by your dentist are the primary treatment methods. All plaques, tartar and other bacterial products on the tooth surface are removed. These procedures, which are applied with the help of some special tools, laser or ultrasonic devices, accelerate the healing and minimize the possibility of recurrence of the disease. Then, if necessary, dental restorations should be applied. Prostheses that are not compatible with the mouth and tooth structure, structural defects in the teeth and other problems that can prevent tooth cleaning can be eliminated in this way.

The most accurate method of resolving gingivitis is to provide the necessary hygiene in the mouth. It is recommended to brush the teeth and tongue with the appropriate technique 3 times a day and to use regular dental floss.

Generally, the use of antiseptic and anti-inflammatory mouthwashes, which accelerate the recovery of the disease and reduce the pain it creates, is also recommended.
