The health of your gums is essential to your overall oral wellbeing. Gums act as the foundation to your smile, providing crucial support and protection to your teeth. If plaque and bacteria is left in your mouth, and not effectively cleaned away, it can attack your gum tissues and lead to gum disease.
Periodontal gum disease is progressive. The early stage of the condition is known as gingivitis, which can be reversed with a thorough dental cleaning and good brushing and flossing habits. If left untreated, however, gingivitis can progress into the more advanced form, periodontitis. This requires more advanced treatment with our experienced clinicians.
A periodontist focuses on the health of your gums, jawbone and supporting tissues, and provides specialist treatment to prevent, diagnose and treat advanced gum disease. They have undergone further training and have many years of experience in the field, giving them the expertise to successfully treat issues with your gums and jawbone. By seeing a specialist periodontist, you can be assured that your oral health is in safe hands.
If periodontal issues are left, the condition will continue to get worse, leading to receding gums, deteriorating bone and ultimately to tooth loss. Although it cannot be reversed, periodontitis can be managed with effective treatment, and even stabilised if treated early enough. Our experienced clinicians are best suited to helping prevent aggressive periodontitis from causing further damage, and giving you tailored advice and information to keep up the hard work at home.
Your thorough periodontal consultation involves an assessment of your gum health, the progression of your gum disease, a discussion of your treatment options and expected timeframes.
