Gum disease and management
Gum disease or Periodontitis is a multifactorial disease. It is aggravated by certain types of bacteria, smoking, diabetes and genetic factors.
By maintaining an excellent oral hygiene at home whilst having regular treatment visits with your Periodontist (gum disease specialist dentist), General dentist or Hygienist, the progression of the gum disease can be stopped, and improved. Deep, persisting pockets caused by periodontal disease can be corrected through pocket depth reduction. This procedure is used to clean the pockets and secure the gum tissue in its original place. Reducing pocket depth and eliminating existing bacteria are important to prevent damage caused by the progression of periodontal disease and to help maintain your healthy smile.
