Periodontics is a branch of dentistry relating specifically to the underlying structures supporting your teeth. Our dentists may recommend periodontal treatment to improve and maintain your oral health.

What is periodontal treatment?

Periodontal treatment focuses specifically on structures that support the teeth, including the jaw bone and gums. It typically involves a deep cleaning of the teeth, down to the root, in order to remove plaque and tartar deposits.

In some cases, surgery may be required to remove hard-to-reach areas of infection. Grafts or modifications to the shape of your gums can also form part of your periodontal treatment, having an aesthetic effect as well as a functional impact on your oral health.

Why would I need periodontal treatment?

If infection sets in around the base of your teeth or your mouth shows signs of gum disease, (gingivitis), periodontal treatment is required to resolve the problem, limiting damage to the underlying bone. Gum health issues can have a number of different causes, including hormonal changes, illnesses or medication. It isn’t necessarily an indication of poor oral hygiene.

Although dental implants are typically problem-free, disease and infection can build up around the implant. Periodontal treatment is the appropriate method for addressing any bacterial build up deep below the teeth, scaling to the severity of the issue.

What are the benefits of periodontal treatment?

  • It is a preventative measure which can be applied at the early stages of gingivitis, to prevent serious damage to the gums and bone.
  • The treatment is scalable depending on the severity of the issue, so surgical intervention may not be necessary.
  • A beautiful smile.
  • Fresh breath.
