Periodontal-disease

Gum Treatment – Periodontal Treatment

The initial signs of gum diseases (Gingivitis) include bleeding , bluish red colour gums, swelling in the gums. This gum bleeding occurs especially while brushing or biting on hard food, At this stage the disease is confined only to the gums without affecting the underlying bone.

If gingivitis is not treated in time, it will lead to detachment of the gums from the tooth, creating a space between the gums and the tooth known as a pocket. This stage of the disease is called periodontitis.

The common symptoms of periodontitis are blood or pus discharge from the gums, foul smell of the mouth, irritation in the gums, sudden appearance of gaps between the teeth, gum recession, sensitivity of the teeth, frequent occurrence of painful swellings on the gums (abscess formation), Tooth Mobility.

Studies show that this bacteria also spreads to other organs and a predisposing factor for heart disease, respiratory problems, etc. In diabetics, this gum disease may even cause tooth loss.

Various Gum Treatment Procedures

Scaling

Even after we brush twice a day, some minute food particle accumulate in unreachable areas. It will lead to decay and gum disease. It is advisable to go for an ultrasonic tooth cleaning whenever you have bleeding gums, stains, calculus, bad breath. Stain removal (Nicotine, Pan chewing) often requires multiple sittings.

Deep scaling & Root planning

When calculus not only present above the gum margin (supra gingival) but below the gum level (sub gingival) causing pockets, then the cleaning has to be deep.

Flap Surgery

In cases of severe periodontal disease, surgery will be necessary to repair and regenerate the soft and hard tissues . The goal of surgery is to eliminate pockets between the gum and tooth and attempt to encourage reattachment and normal function and aesthetics to the patient.

Procedures that regenerate lost bone and tissue supporting your teeth can reverse some of the damage caused by gum disease.

Gum infection almost always progresses to the supporting bones, which results in bone loss and  mobility of the tooth and migration of the tooth causing spaces in between the teeth. To retain the tooth, It may be necessary to augment the bone support that is lost by adding bone grafts.

Preventing Gum Disease

Remove plaque and bacteria through daily brushing, flossing, and regular oral hygiene. Routine visits to a dental professional in Tirunelveli for cleanings are also essential.

Visited Dr. Shiva after reading the reviews online. Was a little sceptical because my only point of reference was online reviews but in the end must say that the experience far exceeded the expectations!! Dr. Shiva is one who not just loves his profession but also makes u fall in love with the same. He corrected the cross-bite of my 11 year old with ease. The time Dr. Shiva spends in explaining the issue is commendable (a rarity in today's world wherein health-care has become commercial and time is money). The discussion/ explanation/ education was so thorough that my son himself completely knew of the line of treatment and the necessary care to be taken. Not just that, the doctor is also available online for follow up queries!! the most affable doctor I have ever met (this I say after coming from a family of doctors;-)).. the clinic is well appointed, has advanced equipment and located in a serene place..probably the best orthodontist in Tirunelveli region.. I wish him all the best and success.. hope Dr. Shiva keeps spreading smiles!!

I am going to Dr Sankars clinic for more then a year now for orthodontic treatment. I started my treatment in my native in the Netherlands. I was a bit reluctant to do so, but after meeting Dr Sankar for the first time I felt very confident. He takes you very serious as a patient. Does his job meticulous and keeps very good records. He is doing a more precise job then my Orthodontist in Netherlands was doing and having finished my treatment now finally I am very please with the result so I am very happy with the service and treatment provided by This Clinic and Dr Sankar. can recommend it to anyone looking for a treatment. the clinic is well organised and clean as well

Shakti Clinic has been my go to doctor in Tirunelveli. He is very professional and explains the need for every process. Helps one resolve dental issues from the root of the problem. Quite an authority in the field and in times where people are looking to make profits, he on the other hand doesn't take you through unnecessary procedures., until it's needed. He is inclined more towards service than profits. And I'm a happy client of his for two years now.
