The disease of the gum is a problem that affects most people at one point in their lives or the other. The good news is that this disease is treatable if spotted at an early stage.
At Ryan Dental on Harley Street, London, we offer a wide range of periodontal treatments to help you combat the symptoms of the disease and reduce them to a reasonable extent. With us, you can be sure of a healthy and happy smile again.
The periodontal disease, mostly known as gum disease, is a condition in which the tissues that hold the teeth in place become infected. It is primarily caused by an inadequate brushing and flossing habit that gives room for a film of bacteria that may appear to be sticky or accumulate on the teeth and harden. At an advanced stage, it can result in bleeding gums, sores, painful chewing and even loss of a tooth.
Causes Of Gum Disease
There are so many bacteria in the human mouth which combine with mucus and other particles to continually form a colourless and sticky plaque on the teeth.
These plaques get removed every time we brush and floss, When they are not eradicated, it begins to harden and form “tartar” which cannot be removed by brushing or flossing but only through the help of a dentist.
Some factors can increase one's risk of developing gum disease, but the most prominent is smoking, others include hormonal changes in women, a medication that reduces the production of saliva, diabetes, genetics and illnesses like HIV.
Signs And Symptoms Of Gum Diseases?
Swollen, red and tender gums are usually the earliest signs of gum disease. Gingivitis is another name for this condition, and it can cause blood to flow during brushing and flossing.
Where gum disease is not treated, it can lead to another condition known as periodontitis, which has the following symptoms:
At Ryan Dental on Harley Street, London, our dental team are experienced and provide suitable options to help restore your confidence and smile. We offer the following periodontal treatments to help you take care of your gum disease:
Dental implant surgery
This procedure replaces the area of a missing tooth, by surgically placing titanium in the jawbone in which the artificial tooth can be planted. This treatment is recommended for those who have lost their tooth but still have a healthy bone.
This treatment is recommended mostly for those that have lost the bone, which supports the teeth because of the gum disease. This regenerative procedure includes the evacuation of dangerous bacteria through a portion of the bone or by applying some proteins to stimulate the tissue.
This treatment is performed by passing a tiny beam of light through the gums to eradicate the harmful bacteria. This treatment is generally preferred by those who feel too nervous about dental procedures because it is not invasive like the traditional methods of treatment. It also takes a shorter time for healing to be completed so that you can get back to being comfortable within the shortest possible time.

Prevention Of Gum Disease
Gum disease, like other diseases, can be prevented. The key to this prevention is having proper oral hygiene (which includes brushing and flossing daily) to prevent the build-up of plaques which will eventually develop into the unpleasant gum disease.
It is also essential to have frequent check-ups with the dentist to monitor and detect the early stage of the disease so that treatment can be provided.
