If you think your gums are inflamed then you need to act quickly. Prompt treatment can help reverse the early signs of gum disease before it progresses into a more serious condition and eventually causes tooth loss. The most effective way to treat gum inflammation is through professional care combined with increased oral hygiene at home.

Professional care for gum inflammation will include:

  • An initial evaluation with our dentist combined with a professional dental cleaning to remove all the tartar or calculus from your teeth.
  • If you have any dental restorations such as leaky or crumbling fillings or crowns then these may need to be repaired or replaced as they could be trapping plaque bacteria and causing localized to gum inflammation.
  • We may provide you with instructions on how to clean your teeth more effectively at home, including brushing and flossing techniques.
  • You will need to see us regularly for professional cleanings and checkups.

What Will Happen During a Professional Tooth Cleaning?

We use special dental instruments to gently scrape away all plaque and tartar in a process called scaling. If your gums are particularly infected then we may use local anesthetic to make sure you are comfortable. Afterwards we will polish your teeth to smooth any rough surfaces as this helps to make it harder for plaque bacteria to adhere. Once all the tartar is removed, your gums will have more of a chance to repair and heal, and the infection should begin to clear up.

Prevent Gingivitis by Cleaning

The early signs of gingivitis will usually clear up after a professional cleaning, provided you make sure your oral hygiene at home is good. It is important to ensure you brush and floss each day and although your gums may initially bleed, this should soon cease after a few weeks. In a very short while your gums should become firmer and will completely stop bleeding. You will notice they begin to look a nice healthy pink color rather than being inflamed, red and swollen.
