What if My Child Has Already Started Experiencing Dental Resorption?

Posted on 7/1/2024 by Implant and Periodontal Wellness Center of Arizona
If your child is experiencing dental resorption, it can cause concern. This condition can lead to tooth loss if not treated properly. Here is what you should know about the condition. What Is Dental Resorption? Dental resorption is when the tooth structure is slowly destroyed and replaced by bone tissue. Resorption can occur at any age, but it is most common in infants and young children. The exact cause of dental resorption is unknown, but it is believed to be due to an abnormal immune response. Only one tooth is affected in most cases, but multiple teeth may be resorbed in some cases. Dental resorption is a severe condition that can lead to pain, infection, and loss of teeth. Early diagnosis and treatment are essential for preventing further damage. What Are the Symptoms of Dental Resorption? The most common symptom of dental resorption is a small, pitted area on the tooth surface. In some cases, the pits may be visible to the naked eye. In other cases, they may only be detectable with x-rays. As the condition progresses, the pits will deepen and enlarge. The tooth may also become discolored or translucent. In severe cases, the tooth may crumble or fall out entirely. If you notice any of these symptoms in your child, it is important to seek dental care. Treatments for Dental Resorption The best way to treat dental resorption is to prevent it from happening in the first place. This can be done by maintaining good oral hygiene and visiting the dentist regularly. If your child has already started experiencing dental resorption, treatments are available to stop the condition's progression. In certain cases, a simple dental filling is only needed. More severe cases of resorption may require a root canal or even tooth extraction. In all cases, it is important to seek dental care as soon as possible to minimize damage to the teeth. Call our clinic today to schedule an appointment for your child. We can help you determine the best course of treatment for dental resorption....

Difference Between Gingivitis and Periodontitis

Posted on 6/15/2024 by Implant and Periodontal Wellness Center of Arizona
Your mouth is a complex ecosystem teeming with bacteria. While some bacteria are beneficial, others can wreak havoc on oral health, leading to gum disease. Gingivitis and periodontitis, two stages of gum disease, can cause discomfort and even tooth loss if left untreated. Gingivitis: The Early Warning Sign Gum disease starts with gingivitis, which is a reversible stage. It is caused by plaque, a sticky film of bacteria that accumulates on the teeth due to impropering and flossing. The gums can become red, swollen, and bleed easily, especially while brushing or flossing. However, mild gingivitis rarely causes pain. Periodontitis: The Advanced Threat If gingivitis goes untreated, it can progress to periodontitis, a more severe and irreversible stage of gum disease. In this stage, the inflammation spreads beyond the gums, affecting the underlying bone and tissues that support your teeth. This breakdown can lead to deeper gum pockets, receding gums, and tooth loss. Additionally, periodontitis can cause persistent bad breath and loose teeth that become increasingly sensitive to pressure. Taking Action For a Healthy Smile Gingivitis is often treated with professional cleaning to remove plaque and tartar, which are the culprits behind irritated and bleeding gums. Your dentist may also suggest a special toothpaste or mouthwash to fight bacteria buildup. In more severe cases, antibiotics might be prescribed to clear the infection. Periodontitis treatment varies based on severity. In the early stages, a deep cleaning below the gum line, known as scaling and root planing, might be enough to remove built-up plaque and tartar. Antibiotics may also be used to target the infection and prevent further progression. Healthy gums are important! If you have gum problems, they will not get better on their own. We can help! Our team works with you to improve your gum health and prevent the disease from getting worse. Call us today to find out about our treatment options and schedule an appointment with a gum specialist....
