If you want to have healthy teeth, it is also important to have healthy gums. If gums are not healthy and you develop gum disease your teeth may begin to loosen and even fall out. Gum disease can also spread to other parts of your mouth and to other parts of your body as well. For all these reasons, it is very important that you make sure to come to our dental practice for regular dental cleanings to help keep your teeth and gums healthy. Our Doha dentist will be able to provide you with periodic checkups and dental cleanings to make sure that gum disease can be caught before any damage is done.
At Doha Dental we have four top-notch dentists ready to meet your dental needs. They are: Dr. Rami Shinnawie; Dr. Austin Little; Dr. Salama Soukkary; and Dr. Anish. Many patients come to us with problems resulting from gum disease. Gum disease is a serious oral problem which can be possibly avoided if you are very careful to brush and floss your teeth regularly, and to come to our dental practice for regularly scheduled cleanings. If your comments are irritated and bleed easily, or your gums are receding, you may well have gum disease. Gum disease is caused when deep pockets form between your teeth and gums. These pockets are developed when tartar and other dental debris stays on the teeth. When plaque and bacteria are allowed to stay on the teeth, tartar quickly forms. Tartar is a hard, mineralized substance that cannot be removed with regular dental brushing. This is why it is so important to have regular dental cleanings from our Doha dentist, during which time tartar is removed from your teeth.
When deep pockets form in your mouth, tartar, plaque, bacteria and food debris will all begin to gather in the deep pockets. Infection will form and you will have gum disease. When gum disease is allowed to linger, it will most likely move down to your jawbone. When this occurs your teeth will begin to loosen and even fall out. Gum disease will never go away if left untreated. This is why it is very important to have regular dental cleanings – gum disease will most likely be prevented. If it is determined that you have gum disease, you will need to have a periodontal scaling and root planing treatment. This procedure is like a deep cleaning for the gums which will hopefully get your gums back on the road to good health. If this is not effective, you may need a retreatment or gum surgery.
