The Teeth Look Long And The Gums Look Thin. What Is Gum Inflammation?
Good evening, I want to ask. My teeth look long and my gums are thinning but there is no pain. Is that periodontitis? And if I see there is tartar near my gums but there is no pain etc. And if it is periodontitis, is my problem currently severe or is it still in the early stages when viewed from the symptoms? And what kind of treatment will I get if I go to the doctor based on my symptoms? Please help
Periodontitis is an inflammation of the gums and other tissues around the teeth. This disorder can eventually lead to bone damage and tooth loss.
In an acute state, the most common complaints are swollen gums, redness and pain. In addition, you can find plaque on the surface of the teeth accompanied by teeth that appear taller due to shrinking gums. Periodontitis that lasts a long time may not cause pain, can cause the gums to bleed easily, gap between teeth, bad breath and the formation of gum pockets. The diagnosis of the disease and the severity of this disease can only be determined by direct examination with a dentist. The severity of periodontitis can be seen from various factors, including:
the formation of gaps and pockets of gums damaged bones and teeth Some treatments can be given (according to the severity of the disease), including antibiotics and anti-inflammatory along with cleaning the plaque or tartar (scaling procedure). In severe conditions, surgery can be performed. Visit a dentist for appropriate examination and treatment.
Advice for prevention:
brushing your teeth regularly, at least 2 times a day using dental floss to help clean leftovers. Control to the dentist regularly Hope this helps,
