Periodontal gum disease is a common infection that affects your gums by making them swell up and bleed, leading to toothache, bad breath, and discomfort. At Aspendale Gardens Dental Care, we specialise in efficient and safe periodontal gum treatments to ease your pain. Our periodontal dentists will determine the severity of gum disease and recommend the best treatment to ensure fast recovery and healthy teeth.
If you experience any of these symptoms, it is essential to seek medical assistance and consider periodontal gum treatment. At Aspendale Gardens Dental Care, we will examine your gums and determine any possible damage between the teeth to help us understand the current tooth structure. Depending on the severity of your gum disease, our specialists may suggest root planing or deep scaling, which includes thorough roof and pockets cleaning.
Our mouths contain bacteria, which along with mucus, form colourless and almost invisible plaque on the teeth. Regular brushing and flossing help remove this plaque from your teeth. However, if you don’t brush accordingly, you won’t remove the entire plaque from your teeth, which may result in tartar.
Only a professional dental cleaning can remove tartar. Besides poor oral hygiene, other factors that may cause gum disease are smoking, hormonal changes, diabetes, medications that decrease saliva flow, genetic susceptibility, and certain conditions such as HIV.
While periodontal diseases are common, there are a few practices you can try to lower the chance of severe gum deterioration. When you visit Aspendale Gardens Dental Care, our dentists will share helpful tips to keep your teeth and gums healthy throughout the year.
We recommend brushing your teeth at least twice a day or after every meal. We also suggest flossing regularly to remove as much plaque as possible between the teeth. Finally, don’t forget to visit your dentist for regular check-ups and cleaning so you can catch a problem (if there is any) at an early stage and act accordingly.
Our dental clinic offers non-surgical and surgical treatments for gum infections and diseases. At Aspendale Gardens Dental Care, we use top-of-the-line equipment to inspect and diagnose the severity of your gum disease. We will then prepare a custom treatment plan to ensure the best results.
We might use a dental laser to repair diseased and deteriorated gum tissues and restore your bite and smile based on your situation. We also offer gum grafting and periodontal bone grafting.
