What is gum disease?
Gum disease is a rapidly developing infection that can affect the gum tissue, bone, and the natural teeth. It can coincide with the development of cavities as well, which eat away at the tooth’s enamel and structure. Gum disease cannot be cured, though it can be controlled with proactive measures by the patient and dentist.
What are the treatments suggested for gum disease?
Gum disease can be treated in several different ways. This varies, depending on the stage the condition has reached. In the earlier stages, a thorough cleaning at the dental office is the first step. In the later stages, patients may need to undergo a treatment called root planing. This may be combined with ozonated oils applied to the gums to treat the infection at the source. Ozonated oils are used as a natural form of disinfection and has been shown by many studies to be as effective in controlling bacterial infection as any chemical disinfectant.
