What medication would you use to tighten pockets in gums?
Managing gum disease is all about daily plaque control - essentially sound oral hygiene. That means, in most cases, stopping the plaque in your mouth is really in your own hands. Brush every day. Floss every day. Period. Your dentist or oral hygienist may recommend fluoride toothpaste or tartar reduction rinses. Colgate Total is approved by the FDA for helping to prevent advanced gum disease by reducing plaque and tartar.
* Dental professionals recommend oral irrigation as a great way to really clean teeth and gums. Oral irrigators get what toothbrushes and floss don't, so plaque and tartar and the resulting advanced gum disease never come back. Oral irrigators flood the mouth with a jet of water under pressure to flush offending food particles and bacteria from the mouth. From under the gum line where the infection is. It is just like a wound on your arm - you must keep it clean for it to heal. And now there's fresh evidence that advanced gum disease responds well to oral irrigators. Fairly new on the market are irrigators that attach to your shower head or your sink faucet such as Waterpik or Oral Breeze. Do not use any mouthwash that has alcohol as an ingredient.
* Antiseptic "chip" Antibiotic gel Antibiotic micro-spheres The medication is called Chlorhexidine.
* You can find something called "Sterisol" containing Chlorhexedrine in the bottom shelves of Shopper' Drugmart or Walgreens (no, I don`t work for them). Mind you, it really only works in combination with flossing. The same red fluid is called "Hexoral" in some European countries. In the US, this is a prescription item.
* Use of any medication alone will likely be insufficient to effectively treat periodontal (gum) disease. * Effective treatment of periodontal disease is a 3-step process: 1. Correct evaluation and diagnosis by a dental professional, along with initial therapy which may include deep scaling of the root surfaces of the teeth to remove accretions, placement of local antimicrobial therapeutics, prescribing oral medications such as antibiotics or anti-collagenase meds (Periostat), and possibly surgery. 2. Effective and frequent oral hygiene procedures (brushing, flossing, rinsing, etc.) 3. Regular and frequent monitoring and maintenance procedures by your dental professional.
* There is no cure for gum disease. However, if diagnosed early, it can be effectively treated and controlled. Talk to your dental professional about the best options for you.
* Peroxide, baking soda, tetracycline. But need to consult your dentist before.
No. Removal of teeth by a dentist should not hurt. Your dentist will numb your gums with a topical solution, which is rubbed on the gums with a cotton swab, and then give you injections in the area of the tooth to be removed. This is the same procedure that the dentist uses to numb your gums before filling a cavity. As the anesthetic wears off after the removal, you may feel some discomfort, but…
Several diseases have bleeding gums as a symptom. The most common diseases would be periodontitis, gingivitis, or gum disease. It is important to rule these out before you go on to looking for more exotic causes of bleeding gums. See a good dentist. Pregnancy can cause bleeding gums, as can birth control pills. This has to do with fluctuating hormone levels. In fact, almost any hormone therapy can cause bleeding gums. Certain anti-seizure medications such…
Dogs typically don't have grey gums - this would usually be a sign of severe medical problems that needs to be evaluated by a veterinarian as soon as possible. However, some dogs have pigmented gums that can make the tissue appear gray; the best option in these animals is to either evaluate the inside lining of the eyelid (the conjunctiva) or to find a non-pigmented portion of the gums to evaluate.
It is possible to transmit HIV orally by snogging (kissing with tongues and sharing oral liquid). To transmit HIV there needs to be a cross contamination of blood or semen from both people. If one person has had dental treatment (removal of a tooth, cut gums etc) and therefore has an open wound (and possible blood present) and the other person also has bleeding gums, oral problems, etc... then obviously transmission of HIV is possible…
