Understanding Periodontal Disease

Periodontal disease, also known as gum disease, is a bacterial infection that affects the gum tissue and bone supporting the teeth. It’s caused by the accumulation of plaque and tartar on the teeth, which can lead to inflammation, bleeding, and eventually tooth loss if left untreated.

Gum disease is a common condition that affects millions of people worldwide. In fact, it’s one of the leading causes of tooth loss in adults. But with early detection and gum treatment, the infection can be managed and even reversed in its earlier stages.

Symptoms of Gum Disease

The symptoms of gum disease can vary depending on the severity of the condition, but may include:

Red, swollen, or tender gums

Bleeding gums when brushing or flossing

Bad breath or a persistent bad taste in the mouth

Receding gums or teeth that appear longer than usual

Loose or shifting teeth

Changes in the way your teeth fit together when biting or chewing

If you experience any of these symptoms, it’s very important to schedule an appointment with a dentist or periodontist as soon as possible to prevent the progression of gum disease.

Options For

Gum Treatment

At the Clock Dental Practice, we offer treatments for gum inflammation, ranging from mild to severe. Our experienced team will assess your oral health and develop a personalised gum treatment plan to help manage your gum disease and prevent further damage to your teeth and gums.

Surgical Treatment Options

If your gum disease has progressed to a more advanced stage, surgical treatments may be required to manage the condition. These solutions include:

• Flap surgery This procedure involves lifting the gums to remove plaque and tartar from the tooth roots and promoting the healing of the gum tissue.

• Bone and tissue grafts In cases where gum disease has caused damage to the bone and gum tissue, grafts may be used to restore the affected areas.

Non-Surgical Treatment Options

In the early stages of gum disease, non-surgical treatments may be effective in managing the condition. These solutions may include:

• Scaling and root planing This deep cleaning procedure removes plaque and tartar from the teeth and root surfaces, helping to reduce inflammation and promote healing of the gum tissue.

• Antibacterial mouthwash We may recommend using an antibacterial mouthwash to help control bacterial growth and prevent the progression of gum disease.

Preventing Gum Disease

Preventing gum disease is essential for maintaining good oral health. Here are some of the ways you can prevent gum disease:

Brushing your teeth twice a day with fluoride toothpaste

Flossing daily to remove plaque and food particles from between your teeth

Eating a healthy, balanced diet

Avoiding tobacco products
