Also known as periodontal disease, gum disease is an infection that attacks the bone, ligaments and gums that hold your teeth in place. At the PMDC Bangkok dental clinic, we tell all patients to ensure they engage in regular brushing and flossing while also seeing our professional team for frequent dental examinations. If you don’t make a concerted preventive effort, gum disease could lead to premature tooth loss.
At our Bangkok dental clinic, we use state-of-the art equipment and you need to find a dentist with the same tools if you wish to diagnose and treat gum disease early on. Failure to do this will allow the disease to continue unchecked and eventually, the teeth will start to lose support which makes it more difficult to preserve them.
Fortunately, the dental industry in Bangkok has improved to the point where the experience and tools to hand are more than enough to preserve your teeth. Even if your gum tissue and underlying bone have suffered damage, there are regenerative therapies available that can encourage new bone growth.
There are now a host of surgical and non-surgical methods of saving your teeth from gum disease. Even if things seemingly go too far, you can rely on the special techniques and equipment used by PMDC to help provide the right cosmetic look for your teeth.
If you wish to save your teeth from this fate, your best weapons are mouthwash, toothpaste, floss and regular visits to the dentist. It is also a good idea to implement a healthier lifestyle and diet as this can contribute to better oral health. Ultimately, the landscape has changed and gum disease is no longer the ‘smile killer’ it once was. Whether you want to restore damaged teeth after a bad attack of gum disease or simply want a better cosmetic look, get in touch with PMDC, one of Bangkok’s top dental clinics.
