Periodontics (Gum Treatment)









Healthy gums are the foundations and support of your teeth and anything attached to them.

Advancing gum disease can be effectively treated. If left untreated, it can cause inflammation, bleeding, bad breath, sore gums, unsightly swelling and eventually loose teeth due to bone loss.

Untreated disease may also have adverse effects on the heart and circulatory system in men as well as risk to the developing foetus in pregnant women.

Treatment is aimed at halting and reversing the damaging effects of gum disease and preserving a healthy support for your teeth.

Periodontics also addresses problems of gum shape, texture and form. Where gums have receded or there are areas of soreness due to the loss of the tough band of gum normally present around natural teeth, there are several procedures that can be performed for improving the volume, consistency and health of the gums around the teeth or dental implants.
