Periodontology is a form of dentistry that focuses on the supporting structures of the teeth and their health. It identifies potential health issues in the gums and tissue around the teeth. The gums form the substructure of the mouth and teeth. Healthy gums are rose-pink in colour. Unhealthy gums can ultimately lead to diseases of the mouth and decay or removal of the teeth.
Gum health can be damaged by poor dental hygiene or the formation of calculus. Dental calculus, or tartar, forms from excessive plaque deposits around the teeth. Gums can also be effected by other dental conditions and can display early symptoms of other diseases including some cancers.
How does calculus form?
Food residues combine with minerals in saliva to form a lime layer around the teeth and gums. These layers are initially soft but can quickly turn hard, threatening the health and structure of the teeth and gums. They cannot be removed by ordinary brushing. A dentist must remove them safely to avoid damaging the teeth or gums. They use specialised ultrasonic equipment designed for tooth cleaning.
Does tartar cleaning damage the teeth?
Many patients are concerned that the removal of tartar may damage their teeth. The removal process does not harm the teeth. In fact, it supports their health and prevents many potential dental problems. It is a safe and straightforward procedure.
What are the symptoms of gingivitis?
Gingivitis means inflammation of the gums. The most common symptoms are bleeding or consistent discomfort of the gums. Healthy gums do not bleed. If you notice bleeding of the gums caused by brushing your teeth, eating, or without any obvious cause, you should see a dentist immediately.
How is gingivitis treated?
Gingivitis is treated by dentists using tartar cleaning and through consistent maintenance of dental health.
Periodontitis is a severe gum infection that can lead to the loss of teeth and other dental conditions. It is treated by specialist dentists using equipment designed to remove tartar deposits at the root of the tooth and to strengthen the tooth’s attachment to the gum.
How should we brush our teeth?
There are different techniques and equipment you can use to brush your teeth. Consult with your dentist about the most appropriate approach for you. There is a standard method using a manual brush that is generally recommended.
First Step: To clean the exterior surfaces of the teeth, use your brush at a 45 degree angle to the gum line. Move the brush back and forth with a short and soft touch.
Second Step: Use the same method to clean the inside areas of your teeth.
Third Step: For cleaning the interior surfaces of the front teeth, hold the toothbrush upright and brush softly up and down.
Fourth Step: Do not forget to brush your gum line, and be sure to reach the back teeth. Lightly brushing your tongue will also help to keep your breath fresh.
