What Are Signs That You Need Periodontal Pocket Repairs?

Posted on 8/24/2020 by David Mugford
What Are Signs That You Need Periodontal Pocket Repairs?Normally, our gums sit snug against our teeth. However, improper care of your gums can lead to periodontal pockets. These pockets occur when the gaps between your teeth and gums become larger than average. When the space between your teeth and gums increase, it can lead to dental decay and more serious forms of gum disease.

The development of periodontal pockets is detrimental to your health. However, if they do form, it's possible to repair them. In order to cure your periodontal pockets, you need to spot them early on. The sooner you can see signs of periodontal pockets, the better chance you have at recovery.

How to Spot Periodontal Pockets

Spotting early signs of periodontal pockets may be difficult. Knowing what to look for will help you spot signs of these pockets forming. The first sign that you are developing pockets is bleeding from your gums. Bleeding in your gums may occur every so often, however, you may have periodontal pockets if you have continuous bleeding. Another sign of periodontal pockets is a receding gum line. Because periodontal pockets allow bacteria to attack your gums more easily, they will start to recede. A receding gum line occurs in the early stages of gum disease.

In order to avoid periodontal pockets, it's necessary to take care of your teeth and gums. Of course, brushing and flossing your teeth twice a day will help prevent gum disease and tooth decay. However, it's also necessary to come visit our office every six months for a dental cleaning. If you are showing signs of early gum disease or just need a dental cleaning, please give us a call. We'll be happy to set up an appointment, and we can even discuss other ways to prevent gum disease while you're here.
