WHAT TO KNOW ABOUT GUM DISEASE, AN IMPORTANT HEALTH PROBLEM
.
Any bleeding that occurs in women bodies other than menstruation is sign of danger. But for some reason, gum bleeding is not very important. Many people who immediately run to the doctor when they see blood in their urine either brush their teeth more gently or stop brushing so that their gums do not bleed. This is extremely wrong.

IF LEFT UNTREATED, IT WILL MELT THE JAWBONE
.
If simple gingivitis at the beginning is not treated, it dissolves the elastic fibers (periodontal tissue) and the jawbone that connect the tooth to the jawbone around the tooth root, causing the teeth to shake and finally lose. At this point, a yellow, purulent liquid comes between the tooth and the gum. Many of the patients say they shake even though they don’t have a tiny tooth decay. I especially want to emphasize that the first sign of gum disease is bleeding. It is extremely wrong to not consult Turkish dentists for gum bleeding treatment occurs, because in this case, gingivitis continues to increase and what we call periodontal disease begins to melt in the tissue and Jawbone around the root of the tooth.

1 GRAM OF BACTERIAL PLAQUE CONTAINS 14 MILLION MICROBES
.
An oral dentist gum treatment in Turkey is light pink or rose pink texture that does not bleed with sucking, brushing, toothpick or floss in general. But the color of the gum may vary depending on the person’s skin color. Dark brown spots are formed in dark people as a result of excessive accumulation of melanin substance on the gums, which gives color to the skin. When the gum becomes inflamed, it relaxes, blushes, swells and bleeds easily, even with tiny contact. At this point, the most important reasons to focus on bacterial plaques. Bacterial plaque in the mouth is a collection of microbes on food deposits that are partially digested and stuck on the teeth. There are about 14 million microbes in one gram of this bacterial plaque, which can form immediately when teeth are not brushed. Here, the harmful substances produced by these microbes cause inflammation of the gums and therefore gum bleeding and bad breath.

ATTENTION
.
Dental patients in Turkey have a lot of false assessments of dental stones. Some people say that cleaning tartar damages the teeth, scratches the teeth, and therefore does not clean their teeth. However, this is a completely wrong idea. Depending on the rate of accumulation of tartar, cleaning of tartar should be done every six months or once a year.

.
.
DENTAL STONES ALSO TRIGGER INFLAMMATION
.
Another cause of gum inflammation is tooth stones. Dental Stones, also called Tartar, are formed by depositing calcium and phosphate ions on the plaque if bacterial plaque is not cleaned. Dental stones are dirty yellow, calcareous hard substances that occur some above the gum and some under the gum.

The gum turns black over time due to bleeding under it. These dental stones, which accumulate mostly in the places where the salivary ducts open into the oral cavity, that is, on the tongue side of the front teeth in the lower jaw and on the cheek side of the upper molars, are foreign bodies for the body. These dental stones irritate the gums and cause inflammation. His gums swell, begin to bleed and withdraw.

FACTORS LEADING TO GINGIVITIS

  • Nutrition: hard and fibrous foods have a cleansing and massage effect on the gums. However, carbohydrate-weighted foods such as cakes, burritos, rice pudding cause bacterial plaque to form and gums to be unhealthy.
    .
  • Breathing through the mouth or sleeping with the mouth open at night: normally, the lower and upper lips should come into contact with each other at rest. Otherwise, the teeth and gums dry because the person breathes through the mouth; cracks also form on the dried gums. Germs enter through these cracks, creating gingivitis. Again, children with curvature in the nasal compartment and nasal flesh are forced to breathe through the mouth because they cannot breathe through the nose. Dry mouth and therefore gum disease are inevitable in these people.
    .
  • Lip ligaments, especially in children: if the lip ligaments are stuck close to the edge of the gum, every time the lip plays, this ligament moves the edge of the gum and begins to separate from the tooth. Food residues in the gums separated from the tooth, as a result of this, microbes increase, and as a result, gingivitis occurs.
    .
  • In people with dental perplexity: a large amount of food residue is collected between the teeth during eating. A person with a Normal dental sequence makes a natural cleaning of the teeth with the help of cheek, lip and tongue movements and saliva, while those with perplexity in their teeth cannot do this cleaning. Even in cases where perplexity is advanced, brushing cannot clean these areas. For this reason, people with perplexity in their teeth must necessarily have orthodontic dentist treatment in Istanbul and Antalya. Otherwise, it is inevitable that they will experience tooth and gum disease at later ages.
    .
  • Dysfunction: people who are forced to perform unilateral chewing due to missing or rotten teeth on one side, the gums become inflamed more easily on the side they do not use, since there can be no natural cleaning.
    .
  • Diseases that cause dry mouth: such as diabetes (diabetes), Sjogren, Parkinson’s, Hodgkins.
    .
  • Stress.
    .
  • Leukemia (blood cancer).
    .
  • Use of medications that cause dry mouth, such as antidepressants, antihistamines, diuretics (diuretics), blood pressure medications.
    .
  • Antiepileptic drug use.
    .
  • See head and neck radiotherapy.
    .
  • Decreased fluency of saliva due to chemotherapy.
    .
  • Dry mouth after menopause.
    .
  • Tobacco use.

WHAT ARE THE TREATMENT METHODS FOR HEALTHY TEETH?
.
Bacterial plaque must be removed from all surfaces of the teeth. For this reason, teeth should be brushed at least three times a day and for three minutes. But since only the front and back faces of the teeth are cleaned by brushing, this process alone cannot be enough. The deciduous surfaces of the teeth should be cleaned with dental floss, toothpicks, rubber tips and water-powered tools. Dental stones, on the other hand, cannot be eliminated by the patient by brushing. Dental stones that adhere tightly to the teeth can only be cleaned by the Turkish dentist with special tools.
.
.
DO NOT DISRUPT YOUR TEETH CONTROLS
.
Finally, I want to express that the number of people who have not had tooth stones on their teeth in life is very small. Also, given that dental stones can be hidden under the gum, it is necessary not to neglect periodic dental checkups to protect them from gum inflammation. Normally every six months, those with gum problems should go to the dentist every three or four months. Because the flow of saliva stops when we sleep at night, the gums remain vulnerable and bacteria become more effective. For this reason, brushing and oral care before going to bed at night is very important.

BEAR IN MIND FOR HEALTHY GUMS

A healthy gum never bleeds with brushing your teeth, toothpicks and flossing.
