Gum Disease Treatment

Gum Disease Treatment in St Marys – What’s Involved?

Gum disease treatment at our St Marys dental clinic is one of our most common procedures. When treated in its early stages, your gums will quickly revert to their normal condition; but ignoring your symptoms could cause gum disease to progress to periodontitis. This serious disease can lead to bone erosion and eventual tooth loss.

How to know if you have gum disease?

St Marys patients are advised to look out for symptoms such as sore or swollen gums, bleeding when they bite into crunchy hard foods, or gums that appear redder than normal.

Treatment for gum disease

In the early stages of gum disease, improving your brushing and flossing skills may suffice to restore gum health. However, in the majority of cases, gum disease treatment at our St Marys practice involves scaling and cleaning the teeth to remove hardened plaque. This is followed by planing or smoothing the tooth roots also called a deep clean procedure to prevent bacteria from sticking to them.

Our dentists may advise you to use an antimicrobial mouthwash or prescribe a course of antibiotics to treat persistent infections.

If these treatments aren’t effective, then flap surgery or bone and tissue grafts may be required.

I am a fairly new customer to SNK but will continue to return as the staff are absolutely lovely and the service is fantastic. They are upfront about potential costs prior to service which are very reasonable. The dentist is very gentle and ensures you’re comfortable and not in the seat any longer than you need to be.


The Best dental care I have ever experienced! Dr.Naseem was professional, friendly and courteous. He explained all my options and made sure that I understood the procedure beforehand. I’ve had bad experiences with dentist treatments in the past but I’m so relieved to have come here. Thank you for being so patient and kind in my time of need. I was in good hands and cared for by Dr Naseem and his lovely receptionist. My family dentist from now and I will highly recommend. Thank you again.
