Periodontics is essentially an infection of the gum tissue that can cause gums to bleed and become inflamed and very sensitive. Other indicators that you may be suffering from periodontics include constant bad breath, gum recession, and dental plaque build-up. This disease can cause irreversible damage to your jaw bone, gums and dental health. Smokers are the most at risk of this disease.
If you suspect that you may be suffering from periodontics you should make an appointment with your dentist immediately.
At My Dentist St Leonards, we perform a routine periodontal examination at every dental check-up, which we recommend you attend every 6 months. We can easily diagnose periodontal disease, and if you are suffering from this disease, we recommend bi-monthly check-ups to track your recovery progress.
One of the worst long-term effects of periodontics is the loss of bone and soft tissue. But fortunately, our team at My Dentist St Leonards are able to perform bone grafts and tissue grafts to recover the original shape and aesthetic of your mouth. We also perform oral, soft tissue and bone transplant surgeries, place dental implants, conduct crown lengthening, perform pocket reduction procedures and effectively treat gum diseases.
