Gum diseases are treated in various ways depending on their severity, how you may have responded to earlier treatments, and your overall health.

After a thorough evaluation, we will recommend treatments, ranging from non-surgical treatments to surgical procedures. Non-surgical treatments control the growth of bacteria. Surgical procedures restore the tissues supporting your teeth.

Signs of Gum Disease

Gum disease is a silent disease because pain is not always a characteristic sign. See your Hoppers Crossing dentist if you have the following:

  • Red, swollen, or tender gums
  • Bleeding gums when brushing your teeth
  • Loosened teeth
  • Persistent bad breath
  • A bad taste and smell in your mouth
  • Gum abscess
  • Receding gums

Professional dental cleans in Hoppers Crossing

During your check-up, your dentist will remove the plaque and tartar from the gumline. If you have any symptoms of gum disease, your Hoppers Crossing dentist may recommend dental cleaning more than twice a year.

Dental cleanings are not a solution for active gum disease. They are an important preventive option that can help you stop the progression.

Scaling and root planing

This is a deep-cleaning procedure done under a local anaesthetic, in which plaque and tartar from the gumline are scraped and rough spots on the tooth root smoothened.

Smoothing the rough parts removes bacteria and provides a good surface for the gums to reattach to the teeth. Scaling and root planing are performed if your Hoppers Crossing dentist detects, under the gums, plaque and calculus that need to be removed.

Periodontal Surgery

If you have serious gum disease, you may need more treatment, such as periodontal surgery.

In some cases, extracting the affected tooth is required.

Your Hoppers Crossing dentist will tell you about the procedure needed and how it’s done.

Whether you’re having surgery or root planing, you may be given antibiotics. Your dentist will inform you whether this is needed.

Some gum diseases can be prevented from occurring by practicing a good oral hygiene routine.

Good oral hygiene involves:

  • Brushing twice a day
  • Using fluoride toothpaste
  • Flossing once a day
  • Quitting smoking
  • Regularly visiting your hoppers crossing dentist

Are special preparations needed before treating gum diseases?

Your Hoppers Crossing dentist can conduct most procedures in the office. The duration to perform the procedures, your level of discomfort, and recovery period vary from patient to patient.

Other factors are the type and scope of the procedure and your overall wellness. Local anaesthesia to numb the area may be given before some treatments. If needed, medication may be given to help you relax.
