Once gums have reached a level of chronic inflammation, gum disease takes over and can lead to early tooth loss. Gum health is an essential part of maintaining a healthy set of teeth. Gum disease is one of the leading causes of missing teeth and can affect adults at any age.
Periodontal treatment is the deep cleaning of the gums, removing plaque, calculus build up and bacteria from above and under the gums. Multiple appointments may be necessary. The aim of periodontal treatment is to treat the gum disease, to stabilse the condition and help prevent or slow the progression of the disease.
