Gum/Periodontal Disease

Are you experiencing bleeding gums when brushing or flossing? Do you notice redness, swelling or bad breath? Do you feel some of your teeth are loose?

All of these are signs and symptoms of periodontal disease, which are infections of the gum. If left untreated, periodontal disease will gradually destroy the supporting gum tissue and bone of your natural teeth. This will lead to looseness of teeth and eventual tooth loss. Healthy gums and healthy teeth should not bleed when brushing or flossing!

Specialist periodontal treatment is necessary in patients with advanced gum diseases. Gum disease requiring specialist treatment involves the dedicated removal of bacteria underneath the gums. Careful diagnosis, skill and treatment of periodontal disease by a Specialist Periodontist will give your teeth and gums the best outcome. 

Our staff can organise an appointment for consultation with a Specialist Periodontist (Gum Specialist).
