Periodontal Assessment and Treatment
I am interested in
Prevention is the best course of action, but once periodontal disease is present then a professional assessment and treatment is required.
Periodontal disease has been linked to a higher risk of heart attack, diabetes and other general health issues.
This occurs when toxins in plaque destroys the tissue that anchors the teeth into the bone. The gum line then recedes, which can expose part of the root of the tooth. When exposed, roots can become susceptible to decay and sensitive to cold and touch.
Gum disease destroys the periodontal ligament which connects the tooth to its supporting bone. Periodontal treatment aims to prevent or at least slow down this destruction.
If you believe you may have similar symptoms relating to your gums, an assessment with one of our practitioners is highly recommended.
