More teeth are lost through gum disease than through tooth decay, so you can begin to appreciate the need for healthy gums. Periodontal treatment is any treatment that aims to improve the health of your gums.
At Australia Dental Burpengary we offer a full range of treatments ranging from a straight forward clean of your teeth, to an extensive tartar removal above and below the gum level, to simple surgery of the gums.
In those cases that do not respond to the treatment that we are able to provide, we would refer you to a specialist periodontist.
