“Healthy gums result in a healthy, complete smile”

Periodontal disease, more commonly known as gum disease or gum infection, is one of the main causes of tooth loss. Advanced gum disease has been linked to other serious health concerns such as heart attacks, strokes, diabetes, bronchitis, and premature birth.

As part of your general dental visit, our dentists at Prevent Dental Suite will examine you to determine if you have periodontal disease and provide appropriate treatment if required.

What Treatments are Available for Gum Disease?

At Prevent Dental Suite, we offer gum disease treatment over a number of stages:

Stage 1: Removal of plaque and calculus, which might require 2-4 appointments depending on the severity of the disease.

Stage 2: We provide oral hygiene instructions including brushing and flossing techniques.

Stage 3: Educating the patient regarding the cessation of smoking habits and dietary changes.

Stage 4: A long-term treatment plan will be created. During follow-up appointments, the gums will be monitored for improvement. If there is no improvement you will be referred to a specialist.

What do I need to do to Maintain Healthy Gums After the Treatment?

  • Brush twice a day and floss daily.
  • Use a soft toothbrush and be sure to replace it at least every 3 to 4 months.
  • Avoid sticky sugary foods and eat a healthy diet.
  • Avoid smoking, as it is unhealthy for gums and teeth.
  • Regular dental care is extremely important to maintain your oral health.

How will I Feel During and After the Gum Treatment?

  • Discomfort during the treatment, however, local anaesthesia can be used to reduce the pain.
  • Gums will be tender and swollen for a few days after the treatment.
  • Teeth will be sensitive for a week or more but this will lessen over time.
  • Gums will return to normal within a short time.
