How We Treat Gum Disease
The main goal to solve gum disease is to get rid of the infection that is caused by bacteria buildup in the mouth.
On your first visit, your dental professional will perform a painless oral examination and usually take X-rays to assess the extent of the damage and determine if there are any additional problems that could affect treatment.
You dentist may perform a deep clean using our advanced LED laser technology to clear away the infection. You may be prescribe antibiotics or an antibiotic mouthwash to help treat the infection.
Once the infection has cleared, you may also require dental fissures which are like filling for the gums to help keep out bacteria from the gums.
In extreme cases, you may need to be referred to a Periodontists, who specialises in this specific problem.
