Advanced Gum Health CarePlaque is formed by bacteria building up on your teeth & forming a thin layer or biofilm. The build up of plaque is a natural process but if you don’t remove it effectively with twice daily cleaning, plaque can lead periodontal (gum) disease, which is a major cause of early tooth loss.
Periodontic treatment focuses on the prevention, diagnosis & treatment of gum disease, as well as looking at tissues near to the teeth & the bone structure of the mouth.
The two most destructive of dental diseases, namely gum disease (periodontal disease) & tooth decay (dental caries) are almost completely preventable. Good habits learnt early are the best protection, but it is never too late to improve.
A carefully tailored program of oral health improvement & maintenance can pull all but the very worst cases back from the brink.
By maintaining optimum oral health, your restorations last longer, your mouth feels more comfortable & you eliminate mouth odour problems that lead to bad breath. A healthy mouth forms the foundation for restorative, aesthetic & implant dentistry.
Most preventative dentistry techniques require improved home care & are co-ordinated through the dental hygienist & oral health professional. We can also provide active treatments such as fissure sealing, fluoride & ozone therapies.
