Symptoms of gum disease

Symptoms of gum disease include bleeding gums, swollen gums and bad breath.

Brushing your teeth twice a day and flossing regularly can help gum disease. A dental hygienist may need to thoroughly clean your teeth.

Gum disease is caused by a build-up of a sticky substance called plaque on your teeth. This can happen if you do not brush our teeth regularly.

Localized Aggressive Periodontitis (LAP)

Localized Aggressive Periodontitis, also known as LAP, is a rare type of inflammatory periodontal disease. It is defined by its ability to progress at a rapid rate, severe bone and attachment loss, specifically on the first molars and incisors. The disease is also marked by an early age of onset.

Inferior alveolar nerve block

The most important clinical landmarks used in the location of the inferior alveolar nerve block are the coronoid notch and the pterygomandibular raphe. The preferred site of needle insertion lies between these two landmarks and the point of insertion is determined by simple measurements.

When it comes to a toothbrush, a smaller head is actually better. A smaller head is able to navigate the tight spaces in your oral cavity. Molars may not get a thorough cleaning with a standard toothbrush head because of the restricted space in the back of the mouth. Happy Friday 💙💙.
