Periodontology / Hygiene

 

A scale and polish every 6 months is the ideal way to prevent the spread of gum disease and periodontal damage. In more severe cases local anaesthetic and root debridement is needed to fully cleanse an area and even periodontal surgery can be very beneficial to restore full function to the gum and surrounding tissues.

Causes of Gum Disease:

  • Poor Oral Hygiene
  • Poor Diet
  • Genetic Predisposition/Family History
  • Certain Drugs
  • Smoking
  • Chronic Stress
