September 3, 2015

Woman receives essential oral cancer screening Medina, OH trustsWhen most people hear “oral cancer,” they envision someone smoking or chewing tobacco, and call to mind cautionary photos from high school health classes depicting tumors resulting from years of tobacco use. While using tobacco products and drinking excessive amounts of alcohol do increase the risk for oral cancer, 25% of patients never engage in any of the associated high risk behaviors. The good news about oral cancer is that, in its early stages, it is a treatable disease. The bad news is that many patients are unable to detect oral cancer until it has progressed. In the advanced stages, oral cancer can be devastating and deadly. Call Dr. Allan J. Milewski and his Medina, OH dental team to find out more about oral cancer, and dental health screenings today.

“Hey Doc, my gums are bleeding when I brush my teeth? Is that normal?”

October 29, 2014

486711103We sometimes hear this question from patients who are new to our practice, or haven’t been in to see us for a while. Bleeding gums can be a sign of periodontal disease, sometimes referred to as gum disease, and is nothing to be taken lightly.  If Dr. Milewski has diagnosed you with periodontal disease, you may need more than your professional cleaning at our office in Medina, Ohio. Dr. Milewski may say you need root planning and scaling. But what is Root Planing and Scaling?

First, let’s look at the cause of periodontal disease.

You’ve heard of plaque, the sticky film of bacteria that forms on your teeth and gum. Plaque that is not removed can cause your gums to become irritated, leading to inflammation, bleeding and infection. Plaque can harden or calcify into tartar, or calculus, and allow even more plaque to form. Your gums may become more and more red, swollen and may bleed. This is gingivitis, the first stage of periodontal disease.  The only way to remove this damaging tartar is by having your teeth cleaned at the dental office on a regular basis and to be diligent with your brushing and flossing.  If the plaque and calculus is not removed, it can build up below your gum line and periodontitis can progress, which can damage your gums and the bones supporting your teeth. If this happens, one of the treatments Dr. Milewski may recommend is Root Planing and Scaling.

What Happens During Root Planing and Scaling?

You may have heard people refer to root planing and scaling as a periodontal or “deep” cleaning.  Many patients prefer to have a little anesthetic for this procedure, to reduce any discomfort.  Using an ultrasonic scaler and hand instruments, plaque and tartar are removed from deep within the gum pockets. The tooth’s roots are then smoothed, or planed.  This helps the surrounding tissue to heal, and the pockets to shrink. The smoother surface of the tooth makes it more difficult for plaque to accumulate in the future. This treatment may be done at one or several visits with one of our hygienists, Kathy and Kim. Several months later, this procedure is followed up with another visit where we see how your gums are healing and if the pockets are decreasing. Bacteria cannot easily attach to smooth surfaces, so vigilant brushing and flossing—combined with more frequent visits to Dr. Milewski and his team—will minimize the return of disease-causing plaque and calculus.
