Gum Treatment

Periodontal disease and gingivitis are two forms of gum disease. Early diagnosis and treatment is the key to long term prognosis. We screen our patients at every examination for signs of gum disease and implement treatment as soon as is required.

Treatment can range from simple cleaning of the teeth with the dentist or hygienist to more advanced surgical procedures in developed cases. Patient maintenance at home is essential for long term success and involves carrying out extensive oral hygiene regimes personally designed for you by the dentist. These may include the use of special brushes, floss and special techniques which we will teach you. In some advanced cases bone grafting can be implemented to rebuild bone due to the disease process.

For more information ask your dentist.
