How is Gum Disease Created?

Gum disease in Agoura Hills is created by bacteria, plaque and tartar in your mouth

Like many different oral health care problems, gum disease or gingivitis in Agoura Hills begins with the bacteria left over in our mouths. This bacteria forms with other particles in our mouth to create plaque on our teeth. Regular dental cleanings as well as brushing and flossing your teeth help keep your mouth safe from plaque and bacteria that creates tooth decay and gum disease. Once this plaque hardens into tartar, a dental cleaning is necessary to remove it, otherwise you may start to develop gingivitis. Some other factors that contribute to gum disease in Agoura Hills include smoking, hormonal changes, diabetes, other illnesses, medications and even genetic susceptibility. If any of these apply to you, you may be even more at risk for gum disease. Unfortunately, brushing and flossing don’t always do the trick. You may require more dental care to prevent this condition. Call us today at (818) 857-4430 to schedule your appointment for a dental cleaning and examination so our dentist can check your gums for gingivitis in Agoura Hills.

How Does Gingivitis Develop into Periodontal Disease?

Gingivitis in Agoura Hills can develop into a worse condition if not treated

When it comes to gingivitis in Agoura Hills there are different stages you can experience. The early stages of gingivitis are caused by the plaque and tartar that are left on your teeth. The longer they are there, the more harmful they become to your gums and mouth. After awhile your gums will become inflamed, red and swollen. Fortunately, this stage of gingivitis or gum disease is reversible with regular brushing and flossing as well as regular visits to the dentist for dental cleanings. If gingivitis isn’t treated, then it starts developing into a more dangerous form of gum disease, called periodontitis. This is where the area around your teeth begins to become inflamed. Once this starts to happen, the gums pull away from your teeth creating spaces or pockets that create an infection. The longer this goes without treatment, the worse it gets. Once the infection reaches below the gum line it will start to break down the bone and tissue that holds your teeth in place. Eventually your teeth will have to be removed, and you will need more treatment such as a dental implant or dentures. You can avoid periodontal disease in Agoura Hills by scheduling an appointment with our dentist right away. The sooner you come to see us, the more possible it will be to reverse your condition.

With a deep cleaning, gingivitis in Agoura Hills can be controlled or reversed

"With a deep cleaning your gingivitis or gum disease in Agoura Hills can be controlled and even reversed. The extent of your gum disease requires different treatment, and also may require you to make lifestyle changes as well, such as quitting smoking or a different diet. We will control your gingivitis with a periodontal deep cleaning, or scaling and root planing. This helps to get rid of the plaque and tartar above and below the gum line unlike a traditional dental cleaning."
