Gum Disease Treatment
Gum Disease Treatment In Glenmore Park – Let Us Show You The Way
One of the most common symptoms we deal with here at the Bright Dental Group is gum disease. Glenmore Park residents should also know that in its early form, it’s also one of the easiest to prevent. In fact, it’s thought that as many as 85% of Australians will get some form of gum disease during their lifetime.
Here at the Bright Dental Group, we like to think that we know a thing or two about gum care. As such our Glenmore Park dentist, Dr Kate Kim will identify any problems and deliver the very latest gum disease treatment fast. Utilising a combination of dental scaling and cleaning, Dr Kim and the team will get you back to full oral health in no time at all.
That’s the good news…
The bad news is that if the signs of early gum disease are ignored and left to progress, they will transform into periodontal disease and can go on to wreak havoc with your teeth and gums, causing severe bone and tooth loss.
So what are the signs of gum disease?
Glenmore Park residents should be aware that gum disease, particularly in the early stages, isn’t always painful. Therefore it’s important to recognise the tell-tale signs. These are:
- traces of blood when brushing or flossing teeth or
- red or swollen gums
These are caused by a build-up of toxins that stem from plaque. If plaque isn’t removed, the toxins within can start to irritate the gums causing redness, inflammation and of course those tell-tale traces of blood.
If these signs are ignored or go untreated, then symptoms like
- Persistent bad taste in the mouth
- The formation of deep pockets between the gum and teeth and
- Loose or shifting teeth
are commonplace and unfortunately, much more difficult and costly to treat.
