Gum Disease Treatment

Do you have a parent that lost teeth at an early age or suffered from gum disease? Your genetics might mean that you have similar issues. No matter what the cause of your gum-related concerns, the team at Campsie Family Dental can provide gum treatments. Our deeper form of cleaning will manage your gum health.

If you suspect that you have gum problems, it’s essential to seek help right away. You don’t want to lose bone material or your gums, as they cannot grow back. There aren’t necessarily any warning signs, either. Gum disease is painless until it gets to a more severe stage. That’s why your six-month checkups with us are vital to your oral and overall health.

Locating Your Problem

Illustration of the stages of gum diseaseWhen you have your checkups with us, we’ll perform a comprehensive examination. We’ll evaluate each tooth and every area of your gums. If we find that you have lost bone or gum, your teeth may not be held in place as they should be. We need to make sure that your teeth have a strong foundation so that they aren’t prematurely lost.

What to Expect During Your Gum Treatment

When you have a gum treatment, your dentist, Dr James Song will take his time to create a map of your mouth and go through it with you. We’ll point out the areas that need help and tell you what we’ll do. The cleaning process takes about 30-45 minutes, though the duration will depend on your case. If you only need one or two areas treated, your visit won’t take as long.

Most people who require gum treatments benefit from having visits every 3-6 months to maintain their bones and gums.

Your Gums and the Ageing Process

Many people think that as they age, losing teeth, gum and bone material is natural. That couldn’t be further from the truth! If you keep your oral hygiene routines up to a high standard, you may never face losing any of them. We provide the care you need to keep your entire mouth healthy for life.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why is it important to treat gum disease?

Treatment becomes essential when periodontal disease impacts the health of your gums or jawbone. While unhealthy gums might only present an aesthetic problem initially, they can progress to swollen, red and receding gums once the disease advances. In later stages of the disease, the supporting bone may begin to weaken, and your teeth will shift, become loose or even fall out.

Periodontal disease not only changes your smile, but it can also affect your ability to speak and chew. To avoid tooth loss, it is crucial that any gum disease is being treated in its early stages.

Will I experience any pain during treatment?

You might experience mild discomfort, but usually, periodontal exams are painless. Rest assured that our dentist will be as gentle as possible to provide you with a positive and comfortable experience at our office.

Will I need X-rays?

Periodontal X-rays are necessary so our dentist can detect if any gum disease is present. If another dentist has taken X-rays, you can request that they will be forwarded to us.

How much will the treatment cost?

Because every patient is different, your dentist will have to complete your initial examination first before we can create your treatment plan and include any associated fees and costs.

The cost of your treatment will be determined by the type of dental issue and the complexity and length of the procedure.
