Gum Health

Scheduling regular dental cleaning appointments is an important part of maintaining optimal oral health. Each visit to our clinic hinges on a thorough hygiene cleaning of the mouth with patient education as to how to clean and protect your teeth between visits.

Gum Health (Periodontics)

Periodontal issues are often commonly seen through early symptoms such as gum recession, bleeding gums, and bad breath. Periodontitis causes erosion of the gum and bone around the teeth, eventually leading to tooth loss. Unfortunately, gum disease is usually slow, progressive, and painless, meaning it is often identified too late.
Sadly, it affects many adults in Canada. To help prevent periodontitis, we recommend regular dental cleanings and ongoing appropriate dental hygiene at home, including brushing the teeth and gums twice daily and flossing once per day.
There are some corrective procedures which can help to alleviate the damage caused by periodontitis. These treatments are helpful at achieving the following results:
  • Bacterial removal from underneath the gums
  • Improved ease and effectiveness of tooth and gum cleaning
  • Reshaped bones to better support the teeth
  • Prevention of further damage to the gums
Among the treatments recommend to reduce the effects of gum disease are:
  • Bone grafting
  • Flap surgery
  • Soft tissue grafts

If you have any concerns with your gums, please come for a visit.
