Periodontal or Gum diseases range from gum inflammation to major damage to the soft tissue and bone that support the teeth. Bacteria, along with mucus and other particles, constantly form a sticky, colorless “plaque” on teeth. Brushing and flossing help get rid of plaque. Dental calculus is calcified dental plaque. Calculus contains a range of micro-organisms that are potentially damaging to teeth, gums, and surrounding bone. Hence, regular 6-month follow-ups at Opus Dental Specialities can help maintain oral hygiene and prevent gum diseases that destroy teeth and surrounding structures. Look up & enroll in our Oral Health Care Program for easy maintenance of your oral health. Your entire treatment will be driven by the best dentist in Mumbai with the most advanced dental facilities.
Plaque that is not removed can harden and form “tartar” that brushing doesn’t clean. Only a professional cleaning by a dentist can remove tartar. The bacteria cause inflammation of the gums that is called “gingivitis”, in which the gums become red, swollen, and can bleed easily. This form of gum disease does not include any loss of bone and tissue that hold teeth in place. When gingivitis is not treated, it can advance to “periodontitis” (which means “inflammation around the tooth”). The gums pull away from the teeth and form spaces/pockets that become infected.
The main goal of periodontal treatment is to control the infection. The type of treatment required will vary from surgical to non-surgical, depending on the extent of the gum disease. Any type of treatment requires that the patient keep up good daily care at home.
A Regular dental examination will, therefore, ensure early necessary treatment and prevent the progress of the disease.
Scaling and polishing :
Scaling and polishing involve the use of ultrasonic devices that removes tartar, deposits, and stains from areas that are difficult to reach during routine tooth brushing. This reduces the possibility of tooth decay and gum disease. It leaves the tooth surface smooth which makes it less susceptible to bacterial plaque.
Opus Dental Specialities is one of the few dental centers which have the EMS Air Polishing System. This system involves the use of compressed air and water pressure to deliver a stream of processed sodium bicarbonate powder through a nozzle. It is the least damaging and most efficient means of cleaning stains on the enamel.
As part of good oral hygiene measures, it is recommended to get a cleanup done every 6 months!!
