Dealing with gum disease
Periodontal disease is often referred to as the ‘silent disease’, as most people don’t realize they even have it until it’s reached an advanced stage.
Catching it early on can prevent further deterioration of the gums and bone, as well as tooth loss. If you’ve been diagnosed with gum disease, there are a variety of treatment options depending on the severity of the problem.
We always start with non-surgical options as these are less invasive, however in more serious cases, surgery may be necessary.
What are the tell tale signs of periodontal disease?
Non surgical treatments
At Manor Dental Centre, we are equipped with the latest in dental technology to treat gum disease using minimally invasive procedures, affording our patients with non-surgical treatments, minimal downtime and recovery.
Laser technology is not only documented to be highly successful, we have our own library of cases to prove just how effective it is!
We always start with non-surgical approaches, however in more serious cases, surgery may be necessary.
If the tissue or bone surrounding your teeth is too damaged, several surgical procedures are available to restore a healthy smile.
In some cases, PRGF which combines your own blood plasma and synthetic bone can be used to augment bone loss. We will always recommend the procedure that is best suited to the condition of your teeth and gums.
Remember, prevention is always better than cure.
In order to keep your teeth in good shape and avoid future occurrences of gum disease, you must brush and floss daily, eat a healthy diet, avoid tobacco use and have regular dental checkups.
