Periodontitis Treatment

Our Gold Coast-based dentists can help with gum disease treatments, which refer to a range of procedures and treatments to improve the health of the gums and surrounding soft tissue.

Here are some common gum treatments:

Scaling and Root Planing:

This is a deep cleaning procedure that removes plaque, tartar and bacterial toxins from the surface of the teeth and below the gum line.

Gum Graft Surgery:

This is a surgical procedure in which a piece of gum tissue is taken from one area of the mouth and transplanted to another area to cover exposed roots or to thicken thin gum tissue.

Flap Surgery:

This is a surgical procedure in which the gum tissue is lifted away from the tooth to remove bacteria and tartar from the surface of the root. The gum tissue is then repositioned and sutured in place.

Laser Therapy:

This is a minimally invasive procedure that uses a laser to remove infected gum tissue and promote healing.

Antibiotic Therapy:

This involves the use of antibiotics, either topically or orally, to kill bacteria and promote healing of the gums.

It’s important to note that proper oral hygiene, including brushing and flossing regularly, promotes healthy gums and can prevent the need for gum treatments.

If you are experiencing symptoms such as bleeding, red or swollen gums, or loose teeth, it is important to book in a visit to us for an evaluation.
