Exploring Dental Tool Improvements

Hi, it's Mia Armonde here to talk to you about family dentistry. As my small family grew into a large one, I found myself at the dental office on a regular basis. Every six months, the kids would go into the dentist for a cleaning or repairs to their teeth. During that time, I took an interest in the various ways the dental tools were evolving. Tools used in the dental industry have grown in leaps and bounds in the last few decades. For example, my kids went from hearing the dental drill to wearing headphones that completely canceled out the sound. Each time we go back into the dentist, I take a close look at the improvements that have arisen since the last visit. The results are astounding. I will cover my findings on this site, so you can also enjoy the improvements to dental tools and techniques.

Reverse The Damage: 4 Reasons To Discuss Gum Grafts With Your Dentist

Dentist Blog

If you have gum disease and previous treatments haven't reversed the damage, it's time to talk to your dentist about gum grafting. Gum grafting is a surgical procedure that can reverse the damage done by gum disease. Best of all, your dentist can include this procedure as part of your treatment for gum disease. If you're not sure how gum grafting will benefit your situation, read the information provided below. Here are just four of the ways gum grafting can benefit your dental health. 

Strengthen Gum Tissue

If you've been diagnosed with the advanced stages of gum disease, there's a good chance that your gums have begun to thin and recede. If that's the case, you need to take action to protect your mouth. During this stage of gum disease, your gums will begin to pull away from your teeth. Unfortunately, some treatments can't stop the progress at this point, which is why gum grafting is so important. Gum grafting helps to strengthen your gums, which helps to reinforce the connection between gums and teeth. 

Prevent Further Damage

If you've already sustained significant gum damage, you want to make sure that the situation is stabilized. In other words, you want to protect the healthy gums you have left. That's where gum grafting comes into the picture. Gum grafting can improve the circulation and blood flow in your gums, and will remove the unhealthy tissue. As a result, your gums will be protected against further damage. 

Decreases Sensitivity

If your teeth are overly sensitive and you experience shooting pain when your teeth are exposed to extreme temperatures, it's time to talk to your dentist about gum grafting. You might not realize this, but gum disease can increase the occurrence of tooth sensitivity because there isn't enough gum tissue to protect the nerves in your teeth. Gum grafting can decrease the occurrence of tooth sensitivity, which will allow you to enjoy food without the shooting pain. 

Prevent Tooth Loss

If you're in the advanced stages of gum disease, there's a good chance that you could experience premature tooth loss. That can happen when the tooth is no longer covered by the gums and when you've sustained significant bone and gum deterioration. Gum grafting can reverse the effects of gum disease and prevent the premature loss of your teeth. 

Protect your teeth and your gums. If you're coping with gum disease, talk to your dentist about the benefits of gum grafts.
