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.
