Gum Disease Treatment

Treating gum disease is all about working together with your dental professional and empowering you to best care for your oral health 🦷

Read below to learn how...

If gum disease is diagnosed, your dental practitioner may recommend deep cleans, or a referral to a specialist periodontist.

A deep clean is a specialist clean where the mouth is usually numbed, and all the build up under the gums is removed.

Once deep cleans have been completed, the main factor that helps control and stabilise gum disease is at-home care and making sure your plaque control is perfect!

Maintenance cleans usually every 3-4 months are required to ensure stability of the gums.

Also note that smoking reduces the amount of healing after any gum treatment, as it reduces blood supply and healing capacity of the gums.
