Treatment for Gum Disease


Bleeding gums, loose teeth and bad breath are signs of gum disease.  If you ignore bleeding gums it can lead to loss of the supporting structures (bone and ligament) of the teeth and eventually to tooth loss. Pain is not a common sign of gum disease and people often think that they do not have a problem because they are not in pain.

Risk factors for gum disease include smoking, a family history of gum disease and diabetes. Of course, brushing and flossing are essential for healthy gums.

We take a comprehensive approach to the treatment of gum disease with baseline measurements to objectively report on the condition of your gums and x-rays to see the level of bone around your teeth.

 

Treatment is provided and follow up is always provided to check that your gum disease has been successfully treated. An affordable maintenance plan will also be provided to prevent a recurrence of the problem.
