Symptoms and Treatment of Gingival Diseases
Gingival diseases usually occur as a result of the settling of bacterial accumulation, which is located between the teeth, on the surface of the teeth, and at the junction of the gingiva, on the microbial dental plate. The reason for the formation of bacteria is that toothbrushes or dental floss cannot be adequately cleaned This increases the rate of formation of harmful bacteria. Inflammation of the gingiva and damage to the bone tissue occurs. The common cause of tartar formation is similar bacteria. The accumulation of tartar also accelerates the progression of gingival diseases in the future.

The patient is informed about brushing and flossing to prevent bacterial settlement on microbial dental plaque. Different periodontal procedures can also be applied in cases where inflammation is aggravated, gingival recession, and bone resorption are expected. In some patients, the treatment is completed without bleeding and suturing problems by applying periodontal laser therapy.
Frequently encountered gingival recession problem occurs as a result of factors such as hard or incorrect brushing of the teeth, bone resorption caused by gingival diseases, wrong orthodontic applications, genetic structure.
