Gum disease is a common ailment but one that is important to treat quickly
The majority of adults will suffer from gum disease at some point during their lives. Whilst regular flossing and brushing can minimise the possibility that you will have to experience periodontitis, it is still important to visit a qualified dentist for regular check-ups to make sure that if it does occur, it is dealt with quickly before it becomes a serious problem.
Treating gum disease
Gum disease is caused by a build-up of plaque that hardens over time to become tartar and, in addition to inflamed gums, can result in significant levels of bone and tooth loss over time. We can help you to tackle the problem by removing the tartar and putting together a treatment plan to ensure that the disease is kept under control going forward.
In the event that you already have advanced periodontitis, you can make an appointment to see an experienced periodontist at our clinic. There are various treatment options available and we will be happy to help you choose the most suitable one for your condition. As the gums and jawbone provide essential support for your teeth, it is important to seek treatment at the earliest possible opportunity.
Please note: Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. Before proceeding with a surgical or invasive procedure, you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner.
