At Woodbridge Hill Dental Practice, we provide a comprehensive range of gum treatments. If you are experiencing bleeding gums, receding gums, swollen or sensitive gums or bad breath, you should immediately schedule an appointment to screen for gum disease. Our periodontal (gum) treatments include the treatment of conditions like gingivitis and periodontitis.
An excellent dentist doesn’t focus solely on your teeth. Your gums are arguably even more important to your oral health – without healthy gums, even strong teeth aren’t well supported. To this end, our dental practice offers periodontal consultation and treatment. Whether you are in the throes of periodontitis (gum disease), recovering from it, or simply working to avoid it, we offer an appropriate periodontal treatment. Keeping your gums healthy not only improves your oral health, but has positive effects on whole body health and even the length of your life.
The first level of gum disease is gingivitis, when gums are inflamed due to plaque build-up. Should gingivitis progress without intervention, it will become periodontal disease. At this point, personal oral hygiene will not be able to combat the infection and you will need professional dental attention.
There is a group of three professionals who will be treating your gum problems in our practice as a team: Dentists, Hygienists and Periodontist
