We provide treatment for PERIODONTOLOGY (GUM DISEASES).
Gingival diseases (periodontal diseases) are infectious diseases that affect the tissues
surrounding and supporting the tooth. Even teeth with no caries can be lost due
to such diseases. Periodontal diseases can affect one or more teeth and are the
most common chronic disease in the population. Since it is often painless,
symptoms are hardly noticeable by the patient, leading to late consultation in
most cases. When infection affects only the gums, the symptoms are red,
swollen, bright, soft, and easily bleeding gums. Bleeding is the most important symptom
of gingival disease. If left untreated, infection spreads
to deeper tissues and symptoms include dark red, purplish gum color, gingival
recession/enlargement, tooth spacing, elongation, rotation, wobbling,
dysfunction, filling of food residues between the teeth and into the pockets,
abscess formation, bad breath, and aesthetic defect.
