The health of the gums to a large extent reflect the overall dental health.
Included in this section are dental animations on various aspects of the
gum diseases and their prevention as well as their treatment. These dental
animations are a valuable tool for dental professionals and students to
be used for patient education and motivation of oral hygiene. The animations
cover a wide range of topics related to health and well being of the gums
including gingivitis, periodontal pockets, plaque, calculus, periodontal
surgeries and maintenance of oral hygiene.
Maintenance of good oral hygiene is vitally important for the health of
the gums. Poor oral hygiene can result in diseases of the gums. The gums
are affected by a number of factors both local such as oral hygiene as well
as systemic factors. Common signs of gum diseases include bleeding, red
and swollen gums, persistent bad breath, receeding gums, increasing spaces
between the teeth, one or more teeth becoming loose, and vague aching, itching
or discomfort around the gums are some of the other common signs. We offer
here for your viewing dental animations that cover various aspects of the
gums and oral hygiene.
