Periodontal/Gum Disease Treatment

Did you know periodontal disease is a major cause of tooth loss in adults?

Periodontal/Gum Disease Treatment

Periodontal Disease is an inflammatory Disease that attacks the gums, bones and other supporting structures of the teeth. It is the result of plaque (colourless bacteria that forms on teeth). If plaque is not brushed away, gums begin to slip downward away from teeth. This movement creates pockets in between teeth and gums, which eventually fill with plaque and cause deterioration. As the disease gets worse the bone anchoring the teeth in the jaw is lost, making the teeth loose. If this is not treated, the teeth may eventually fall out.

 

  • Bleeding gums whilst brushing or flossing your teeth
  • Pain while chewing
  • Red, sore, swollen gums
  • Build up of calculus (tartar)
  • Bad breath or bad taste
  • Loss of teeth
  • Teeth sensitivity to hot and cold
  • Changes in bite
  • Gums that have withdrawn from teeth and in between teeth

DIAGNOSIS

The diagnosis of Periodontal Disease can be made through an oral examination with us. Within this consultation x-rays would be taken and the depth of the gum pockets measured.

TREATMENT

We maintain the health of your gums by regular thorough ultrasonic scaling and cleaning as well as the use of soft tissue laser therapy in more complex cases.
