Periodontal disease, also known as gum disease, is one of the main ways that adults lose teeth.
When you suffer from gum disease this can result in infection and damage to your gums or bones in your mouth. This will necessitate periodontitis treatment to restore your gums and mouth to a state of optimal health. Leaving this unchecked can lead to a range of complications, beyond just your dental health, including advanced stages of gum disease which can lead to bone lost and eventual tooth lost.
Treating gum disease
The treatment of gum disease involves the removal of plaque and calculus, scaling, root planning, and possibly perio/gum surgery. If you suspect you might have an infection in your mouth and that you require gum infection treatment, do not wait and let your dental health deteriorate. Contact us today to book an appointment so we can check it out. Prevention is better than cure and we advise everyone to have regular check-ups with recognised dental professionals. This will allow you to catch any problems early and for us to perform the necessary periodontal gum treatment before your infection becomes too serious and requires some major work.
