Gum Disease Treatment in St Marys – What’s Involved?
How to know if you have gum disease?
Treatment for gum disease
In the early stages of gum disease, improving your brushing and flossing skills may suffice to restore gum health. However, in the majority of cases, gum disease treatment at our St Marys practice involves scaling and cleaning the teeth to remove hardened plaque. This is followed by planing or smoothing the tooth roots also called a deep clean procedure to prevent bacteria from sticking to them.
Our dentists may advise you to use an antimicrobial mouthwash or prescribe a course of antibiotics to treat persistent infections.
If these treatments aren’t effective, then flap surgery or bone and tissue grafts may be required.
If you haven’t had a dental check-up in a while or suspect you may need gum disease treatment in St Marys then please contact Pearl Dental Care to book an appointment asap.
Note: Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. Before proceeding, you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner.
