It’s easy to overlook gum disease
When it’s a silent, stealthy adversary
Did you know that research now shows a direct link between heart disease and gum disease? Are you aware that expectant mothers are also at risk of complications if they do not manage their gum health during pregnancy?
This means gum disease can play serious havoc with your dental and general health, so leaving it untreated is dangerous. If your condition is too advanced, the opportunities for recovery reduce significantly.
Depending on the health of your gums, various treatments can be undertaken. These range from:
- Regular hygiene visits to conduct a scale and clean, polish, and flouride treatment
- Deep cleaning and root planning to control moderate to severe conditions
- Advanced technology for plaque removal and deep clean treatments
- Maintenance plans for ongoing management
In more complex cases, it may be necessary to refer you to a periodontist to ensure we reach the most effective solution for you.
