Treatment

Periodontal disease is quite prevalent in the adult population and affects everyone to varying degrees. It is a silent disease that often results in bone loss around the teeth without any symptom or discomfort being felt. If left untreated, this serious bacterial infection can destroy the tissues and bones, which holds your teeth in place.

 

Factors that cause periodontal disease are
  • Smoking or chewing tobacco
  • Crooked teeth
  • Diabetes or heart disease
  • Hormonal imbalance in women during pregnancy or menopause
  • Certain types of medications such as steroids

 

What to do if you think you have gum disease?

The foremost thing that you should do is to visit us for a comprehensive check-up of your teeth and gums. We will examine the ‘cuff’ of the gum around each tooth and see if there is any symptom of the onset of periodontal disease. X-rays may also be required to find out the amount of bone that has been lost. This evaluation is essential to prescribe you the correct treatment plan.
