Gingivitis

Gingival disease is a condition that affects the gingiva or mucosal tissues, surrounding the teeth. Gingivitis is a form of periodontal disease. It is detected when gingival bleeding occurs spontaneously while brushing or eating. It is typically painless and most commonly results in to plaque biofilm accumulation. Gingivitis is caused due to poor oral hygiene. Some medications and uncontrolled diabetes mellitus can be some of the factors that may increase a person’s risk of gingivitis. The signs and symptoms can be reduced by taking proper oral hygiene measures.

Gum disease treatment
If your mouth is healthy, we can help you keep it that way. However, it is never too late to restore oral health. We take a comprehensive approach to fighting gum disease. Scaling and root planing, also known as deep cleaning, is one of the best non-surgical treatments available. When combined with improved nutrition, more effective at-home hygiene, and other therapeutic techniques, the infection can often be eliminated. Even in the worst cases, when the natural teeth cannot be saved, there are a number of restorative treatments available – from bone grafting to dental implants.

Laser Gum Depigmentation

Also known as “Gum bleaching” is a cosmetic procedure to easily remove the brown or black patches that often occur naturally on gum tissue. The treatment is quick, pain-free, and will leave you with healthy, pink gums. The condition called gingival hyper-pigmentation or “dark gums” is caused by melanin in the surface of the gum tissue. It can affect people of all races and ethnicities, though it’s more common in people with darker skin. The dark patches are usually natural, though smoking, systemic illnesses, and taking certain medications can also contribute to the condition. Hyper-pigmentation presents no health risks, but some people simply prefer to have a smile with even, pink gums, which gum bleaching can provide.
