Gum diseases are diseases that affect the hard and soft tissues around the teeth It starts as “gingivitis” in which the soft tissue is affected, if not treated, it progresses to the bone tissue surrounding the tooth and turns into “periodontitis”.
The main reason for gum diseases is the inadequate oral hygiene. it can rarely result from genetic reasons.
What Are The Symptoms Of Gum Disease?
The first and main symptom of gum disease is bleeding in the gum. This is followed by inflammation and bad breath. If it is intervened in the early period and treatment is started, its progress can be prevented and symptoms such as bleeding and bad breath can be eliminated.
If it is left untreated, the disease turns into “ periodontitis “, in which bone tissue is affected.
At this stage, with the recession of the gum and the loss of bone support, mobility (shaking) in the teeth begins to be observed.In the case of periodontitis, further interventions that require a gum disease specialist are required.A long follow-up process begins with the arrangement of the root surface and the purification of the entire mouth from infection. After this follow-up process, surgical interventions could be helpful by using methods such as supporting the teeth with bone grafts, supporting the gums with parts taken from the palate. In this way, the hard and soft tissues lost can be restored, partially.
If periodontitis is not cared in the early period, tooth loss occurs with the loss of the supporting tissues of the teeth.
What is Pink Aesthetics?
Pink Aesthetics is when the person smiles, the color, contours, and appearance of the gum is in harmony with the patient’s smile and it is aesthetically pleasing to the eye.The smile of the patient can be made more aesthetic with a procedure called “ gingivectomy ” from “ gummy smile ” “where the gum is seen more.
In cases where the gums are swollen and thick, the gum tissue can be thinned with “ gingivoplasty “.
In cases where gingival recession occurs in aesthetic areas, this can be eliminated by microsurgical methods.
