TULSA, OK, March 07, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Gingivitis is a type of gum disease characterized by redness, swelling and bleeding of the gums. It can also be accompanied by a tenderness of the gums or pain. To treat gingivitis, a dentist removes the plaque to retard further bacterial growth. After this, the effects of gingivitis can usually be reversed as long as the patient follows a regular and proper oral regimen.
However, gingivitis can sometimes progress into periodontitis, which is a more sever type of gum disease, according to the experienced Tulsa dentists at Perfect Smile. Treating periodontitis may include deep teeth cleaning. This is the scaling and root planning of affected areas in order to restore gum tissues to health so they can re-adapt to the treated tooth surfaces.
Gum disease can lead to tooth loss when left untreated, so it is important that patients seek the advice and assistance of their dentists at the first sign of gum disease.
