Periodontal

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.

We are also able to offer you the latest in soft tissue laser treatment to give the most successful and painless of treatments in early to moderate periodontal disease.

In those cases that do not respond to the treatment that we are able to provide, we would refer you to a specialist periodontist.

The success of periodontal treatment depends upon your compliance. To achieve success you must maintain good brushing and flossing habits and you must return regularly for check ups and motivation.

The good news is that you can help prevent gum disease by taking good care of your teeth every day and having regular dental check-ups.

Here’s how to keep your teeth and gums healthy:

  • Cleaning between your teeth with floss or interdental cleaners, removes bacteria and food particles from where a toothbrush can’t reach.
  • Daily brushing and flossing can often reverse early gum disease. If you use interdental cleaners, ask us how to use them properly to avoid injuring your gums.
  • Visit us regularly. It is important to have regular dental check-ups and professional cleaning is essential to prevent periodontal disease.
