Healthy Gums Ensures Healthy Teeth

Gum Disease (Periodontitis)

Periodontics is a dental speciality that deals with gums and their surrounding structures. Periodontal disease is one of the significant reasons for tooth loss worldwide. It mainly occurs due to either lack of patient awareness as it occurs without any symptoms or due to an untimely diagnosis. Early diagnosis and timely management help prevent the disease progression to its later stages. Regular check-ups with a Periodontist and professional cleaning would reduce the occurrence of various gum diseases, thereby providing room for healthy teeth.

Gingivitis Treatment in Abu Dhabi

Inflammation of gums is termed gingivitis. It is mainly caused by the deposition of bacterial plaque and calculus/tartar around the teeth, resulting in redness, swelling and bleeding from the gums. Professional teeth cleaning every six months and maintaining proper oral hygiene help prevent gingivitis. Our periodontist in Abu Dhabi at the Apollo medical Centre helps patients maintain good oral hygiene by scaling and polishing and explains the proper oral care methods.

Frequently asked question

1. Does scaling/ cleaning teeth cause sensitivity?

It is normal to experience slight sensitivity for about a week or two after professionally cleaning the teeth. At Apollo Medical Centre, our Gum Specialist in Abu Dhabi would provide the necessary measures to prevent and reduce the sensitivity following scaling and polishing.

Periodontitis or gum disease is mainly caused by long-standing untreated gingivitis leading to bone loss and further loosening of the teeth that eventually fall off. Our gum specialist in Abu Dhabi at the Apollo medical centre helps diagnose gum disease at an early stage and provides you with the required gum treatment depending on the stage of gum disease.

Deep gum cleaning/curettage and root planing is a non-surgical method to treat gum disease. For patients who don't respond to non-surgical treatment, gum surgery (periodontal flap surgery) is performed to restore gum health.
At Apollo medical centre, our gum specialist in Abu Dhabi suggests deep gum cleaning, especially for medically compromised patients with diabetes, to prevent gum disease from entering its late stages.

A gum specialist's timely diagnosis and prompt treatment can help prevent gum disease. But once occurred, the treatment aims at maintaining the gums in good health by preventing further disease progression.
Our gum specialist in Abu Dhabi at the Apollo medical centre aims to diagnose gum disease early and maintain proper oral hygiene.

Most of the time, the disease occurs beneath the gum line, and no specific symptoms bother the patient unless the teeth start shaking or there is any pus coming out from the gums. Hence the process of gum destruction is often left unnoticed by the patient.
Our Gum Specialist in Abu Dhabi at the Apollo Medical Centre recommends patients to get their teeth cleaned professionally by a dentist so that any initial symptoms of gum disease can be timely diagnosed.

Gum enlargements may be caused due to various reasons and hence are treated with procedures such as Gingivectomy and Gingivoplasty after identifying the cause of enlargement.

Gum recession can be treated non-surgically and surgically, provided the cause is treated first.

A regular follow-up visit with a periodontist helps maintain the gum health after completing the treatment.

A direct link between gum disease and diabetes has been established. Hence, diabetic patients may seek help from a gum specialist to prevent gum-related issues caused by diabetes or any other medical condition.

Gum surgery can be performed on all patients, provided their medical condition is favourable.
