Understanding Gum Disease

Gum Disease is primarily caused by the accumulation of plaque bacteria between the gums and teeth. If not effectively removed, plaque can harden into tartar, leading to the invasion and destruction of gum and bone tissues supporting the teeth. This progression can result in symptoms such as bleeding gums, receding gums, bad breath, loose teeth, and eventually tooth loss.

Our Approach

At Millennium Care Dental Surgery, we are dedicated to providing personalized and effective gum disease treatment tailored to your unique needs. Our approach includes:

  • Thorough Evaluation: Our experienced dental professionals conduct a comprehensive evaluation to assess the extent of gum disease and determine the most suitable treatment plan for you.

  • Professional Cleaning: Professional cleanings are essential for removing tartar, plaque, and stains from tooth surfaces, promoting optimal oral hygiene and preventing further progression of gum disease.

  • Teeth Scaling and Polishing: Our skilled hygienists perform teeth scaling and polishing to remove hardened plaque and smooth tooth surfaces, reducing the risk of bacterial buildup and supporting gum health.

  • Root Planing: In cases of advanced gum disease, root planing may be necessary to remove bacteria and toxins from the root surfaces of the teeth, promoting healing and preventing further damage.

Maintaining Oral Health

To maintain optimal oral health and prevent gum disease recurrence, we emphasize the importance of regular dental check-ups and professional cleanings. Our team provides guidance on effective oral hygiene practices and offers personalized recommendations to support your ongoing oral health journey.

Aesthetic Gum Surgery

If you are unhappy with the appearance of your unsightly teeth, besides reshaping your tooth using esthetic dental restorations, you might need to replace the lost gum tissue surrounding your tooth in order to restore the natural contour of your smile.

Any disharmony of the gum, like the gummy smile (excessive gum show during smile), uneven gum line, & gum recession with exposed tooth roots, may compromise on the aesthetic value.

Periodontal Plastic Surgery is a surgical procedure performed to improve your smile by restoring the form and function of your gum tissue. We provide various periodontal plastic surgery to improve your aesthetic appearance of your gum such as: –

  • Aesthetic Crown Lengthening Procedure
  • Root Coverage Procedure
  • Soft Tissue Grafting Procedure
Our aesthetic gum surgery can help achieve a more balanced and symmetrical smile. By carefully reshaping and contouring the gum line, we can enhance the overall aesthetics of your teeth and gums, resulting in a more pleasing smile.


Frequently Asked Questions

Gum disease, also known as periodontal disease, can manifest in various symptoms, including:

  • Bleeding Gums: Gums that bleed during brushing or flossing can indicate inflammation, a common early sign of gum disease.
  • Gum Recession: Receding gums may expose the tooth roots and contribute to sensitivity and an elongated appearance of the teeth.
  • Persistent Bad Breath: Chronic bad breath, despite good oral hygiene practices, can be a sign of gum disease caused by bacteria accumulation.
  • Swollen or Tender Gums: Inflamed gums that are swollen, tender, or discolored may indicate gum disease.
  • Loose Teeth: Advanced gum disease can lead to the loosening of teeth due to the destruction of supporting bone and tissue.
  • Pain or Discomfort: Gum disease may cause pain or discomfort, particularly when chewing or applying pressure to the affected area.

Early detection and treatment are crucial to preventing further progression and minimizing potential complications associated with gum disease.

To maintain optimal oral health and prevent gum disease, it is generally recommended to have professional dental cleanings every six months. However, the frequency of cleanings may vary based on individual factors such as your oral health status, risk factors for gum disease, and any ongoing treatment needs.

Treatment for gum disease aims to eliminate infection, reduce inflammation, and restore gum health. Depending on the severity of the condition, treatment options may include:

  • Professional Cleanings: Scaling and root planing procedures remove plaque and tartar buildup from tooth surfaces and root surfaces, promoting healing and preventing further damage.
  • Medications: Antibacterial mouth rinses or antibiotics may be prescribed to control infection and reduce inflammation.
  • Surgical Intervention: In advanced cases, surgical procedures such as flap surgery or gum grafts may be necessary to repair damaged gum tissue and restore proper gum attachment.
  • Ongoing Maintenance: Following initial treatment, regular dental check-ups and professional cleanings are essential to monitor gum health and prevent recurrence of gum disease.

The dentist will evaluate your specific condition and recommend the most appropriate treatment plan tailored to your needs.
