The aim of treating early gum disease or gingivitis is to identify and then eliminate the factors causing this condition. Most often this can be achieved through establishing a better oral hygiene routine at home, combined with professional dental cleanings at your dental office. Sometimes there may be other risk factors, for example uncontrolled diabetes or smoking. Taking action to address these factors can help improve the success of treatment for gum disease.
Understanding the Cause of Gum DiseaseGum disease is caused by a bacterial infection and treatment will focus on removing as much of this infection as possible. This is done through scraping or scaling the teeth to remove hardened tartar or calculus. Tartar consists of hardened plaque bacteria that can only be removed by a dental professional because it cannot be brushed or flossed away. Its removal will help improve the health of your gums as tartar produces toxins that inflame and infect them. Once all the tartar is scraped away, your gums should be able to heal more easily and as your body will now be able to fight any remaining plaque bacteria.
The Importance of Oral Hygiene at HomeAfterwards you will need to step up your oral care at home to help maximize the effect of your professional cleaning. It is best to brush at least twice day or preferably after each meal to remove the maximum amount of plaque bacteria from your teeth and gums. Brushing cannot reach in between the contact areas of your teeth so you must floss once a day. The best time to floss is last thing at night, after you’ve cleaned your teeth and just before you go to bed. This is because the mouth is slightly drier at night creating ideal conditions for bacteria to thrive.
Antimicrobial Mouth Rinse to Fight Early Gum DiseaseMaking sure you go to bed with as clean a mouth as possible will minimize the chances of bacteria being able to multiply. In addition, it’s just nice to go to bed with clean, fresh teeth. It can be a good idea to use an antimicrobial mouth rinse specially designed to help combat gingivitis or early gum disease. This will help to kill off any bacteria and the action of swirling it around your mouth will help loosen any missed food particles so they can be rinsed away.
