Gum Treatment

Gum Treatment Kellyville Ridge

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 Kellyville Ridge dentist if you have the following:

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

Professional Dental Cleans in Kellyville Ridge

During your check-up, your dentist will remove the plaque and tartar from your gumline.

If you have any symptoms of gum disease, your Kellyville Ridge 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 gum line are scraped and rough spots on the tooth root are 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 Kellyville Ridge 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 a affected tooth is required.

Your Kellyville Ridge 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 let you know whether this is needed.

Some gum diseases can be prevented from occurring by practising 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 Kellyville Ridge dentist

Are special preparations needed before treating gum diseases?

Your Kellyville Ridge dentist can perform most procedures in the office. The duration of procedures, your pain tolerance, and recovery period vary from case to case.

Other factors are the kind and extent of the procedure and your overall health. Local anaesthesia may be given before some procedures. If necessary, medication may be given to help you relax.
