Gum Disease Treatment

ortho_inco_inner Periodontal (Gum) disease is an infection of the tissues supporting the teeth mainly caused by the accumulation of bacteria from dental plaque that inflames and damages the gums. This chronic infection attacks your mouth below the gum line where it breaks down the attachment of the tooth and its supporting tissues.
Factors increasing the risk of developing gum diseases include:
  • Tobacco smoking and chewing
  • Systemic illnesses like diabetes or cancer
  • Hormonal changes during pregnancy and menstruation
  • Medications such as contraceptives and anticonvulsants
  • Ill-fitted bridges and incorrect fillings that have become defective.









Regular dental checkup and examinations are imperative given the possibility of gum infection development without its usual signs and symptoms. They may advance painlessly, exhibiting few evident signs even in the late phase of the disease. This explains the increased risk of losing one's teeth.

Various symptoms may point to some form of gum disease, including red, swollen and tender gums, pus & pockets between gums and teeth, receding gums, gums that bleed during or after brushing, flossing or eating hard food, loose, shifting or separating teeth, bad breath, persistent bad metallic taste in mouth, mouth sores, changes in the fit of dentures and the way the teeth fit during bites.

Periodontal diseases are classified according to the severity of the infection and are traditionally divided into two stages.

Gingivitis

Gingivitis (inflammation of the gums) is a fairly common infection that begins with the bacterial accumulation in the mouth. The buildup of plaque causes gums to become red and swollen, and bleed easily. It is often a result of poor oral hygiene, inadequate nutrition and some other medical conditions. When left untreated, gingivitis can progress to Periodontitis.

Periodontitis

Periodontitis is the advanced stage of gingivitis where severe infection erodes the supporting structures of the teeth. The progressive loss and destruction of the bones, teeth and gums weakens the attachments and loosens the teeth.
Daily oral hygiene like brushing, flossing and regular use of an antiseptic mouthwash is critical in preventing gum diseases. You should use fluoridated toothpastes and replace toothbrushes once every three months.
One should maintain a healthy diet that takes care of growth as well as health of the gums and teeth. Avoid frequent consumption of sugary foods and liquids; sugar allows bacterial adhesion and accumulation to the teeth and the tissues surrounding it. It is advisable to limit sugar intake during the main meals of the day. Drinking plenty of water can help reduce inflammation by producing more saliva which in turn dilutes toxins from plaque.
Regular visits to the dentist and dental examinations will help identify and address the risk and occurrence of infections. Progressive stages of the disease may call for more intensive treatments.

Dr. Harleen helped me with my tooth that was hurting me since 6 months now. I really thank her for the painless and quick treatment. After being treated by Dr. Harleen, I can say that I am no more scared of visiting "Dentists". The staff was very helpful as well and the clinic is very hygienic and well maintained. Thank you Meraki Dental Studio for relieving me of my problem.

Believing in the dictum that no news is good news, I have never ever visited a dentist in my 43 years of existence, till the time I met Dr Harleen - mainly for fear that a dentist might give me some bad news which I didn't want to hear. I think what clinched the deal in her favour - and compelled me to break my informal vow to not see a dentist - was her professional knowledge about her chosen field. It certainly adds to her advantage that she can empathise with a patient's apprehensions regarding a visit to a dentist, which makes her work doubly hard to ensure that each patient, including children, who come to her, have a happy, painless experience. She also makes an effort to keep herself updated about the latest developments & practices in dentistry, which inspires confidence in not just the patient who's visiting, but also to refer her as a dentist of choice to one's friends and family. Add to that her generally sunny disposition & warmth and one can safely say that Dr Harleen is one dentist whom you look forward to visit. One wishes her greater success in her profession.

Who doesn't love painless treatments especially when it comes to visiting a dentist. I am sure everyone has this fear of going to a dentist but not anymore. I am happily satisfied to share my case with Dr. Harleen, a very knowledgeable and warming dentist indeed. She explains and suggest treatments so nicely that the patient would want to trust her blindly. She believes in providing the patient with a complete oral health which not only prevents a person from future oral risks but also providing them with an aesthetically beautiful smile. The assistant and front desk people are also very caring and professional. So if you want to pamper your smile then this is the place. I have found my lifetime dentist for sure and recommend everyone out there to visit Meraki Dental Studio. Kudos to you and your team.

I would like to place on record an appreciation for Dr. Harleen Kalsi of Meraki Dental Studio, South Extension. My twelve-year-old son – Royen – required braces to correct the teeth alignment. He has always been apprehensive about the procedure. On his first visit itself, Dr. Harleen made him completely settled with the procedure and made him willing to take it on. The eventual teeth extractions were painless for him and say that he didn’t even realize when the tooth came off. The following sittings to put the braces and thereafter, were extremely comfortable and relaxing for Royen. He has been well taken care off. The team demonstrated the true spirit of ‘Meraki’ when Royen had visited them alone. They took extra care of him and went out of the way to arrange for his transport back home. They do put in a lot of heart & soul in their noble profession. I am glad that Dr. Harleen Kalsi, of Meraki Dental Studio is there to take care of my family’s oral wellbeing. All the best.
