How to Treat Your Gingivitis

Posted on 3/7/2022 by Dr. Bembey and Dr. Yokoyama
How to Treat Your GingivitisGingivitis is an oral condition that affects your gums. Some of the symptoms of this condition include inflamed, swollen, or tender gums. This condition is a mild form of gum disease caused by tartar or plaque that builds up around the gums. If you don't treat gingivitis on time, it can advance to a more severe condition that worsens your oral health. Here are some of the steps you should take regarding gingivitis and how to treat it.

Come for Treatment Immediately

If you notice any signs of gingivitis, you should come in for treatment right away. We have an experienced team of dentists that will perform a detailed examination on your gums and establish the problem. They will perform an oral cleaning that removes all the plaque underneath your gum line if necessary. The same also applies to beneath the surface of your teeth. Keep in mind that there are various ways of getting rid of plaque, depending on its condition.

For instance, we can apply scaling and root planning for the best results. Our dentists will also do more than fix your teeth. They will do an extensive examination of your gums and teeth to see if you have any underlying conditions. If there are other conditions, they will make recommendations on the best way forward. If necessary, we will administer treatment to get the situation under control.

While gingivitis is a condition that professional dentists mainly treat, there are other alternatives to treating it. For instance, you can use sage and turmeric to manage its effects. These products contain properties that help manage gingivitis. However, we advise you to be very careful when using alternative treatment options because they could be harmful. If you can't reach our offices, call us for professional recommendations. Call us for more information on how to treat gingivitis.
