Gum Disease Treatment

Restoring gums, preserving smiles

Kingsford Dental provides comprehensive gum disease treatment to help patients regain optimal oral health. Gum disease, also known as periodontal disease, is a common condition characterised by inflammation and infection of the gums.

If left untreated, it can lead to gum recession, tooth loss, and other serious oral health issues. Our experienced team of dental professionals employs advanced techniques and technology to effectively diagnose and treat gum disease.

Gum disease treatment at Kingsford Dental begins with a thorough examination to assess the extent of the condition.This typically involves measuring the depth of gum pockets, evaluating gum inflammation, and checking for any signs of bone loss.

Based on the diagnosis, a customised treatment plan is developed to address the specific needs of each patient. Treatment options may include professional deep cleaning, known as scaling and root planing, to remove plaque and tartar buildup below the gumline. This process helps eliminate bacteria and promotes gum healing.

Our dedicated team will also provide education and guidance on proper oral hygiene practices and ongoing periodontal maintenance to ensure the long-term success of the treatment and prevent future gum disease issues.

Frequently Asked Questions

Common signs and symptoms of gum disease include red, swollen, or tender gums, bleeding gums during brushing or flossing, persistent bad breath, receding gums, loose or shifting teeth, and changes in bite alignment. 
If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, it is important to seek dental care for an evaluation and proper diagnosis.
The duration of the dental implant process can vary depending on individual cases. It typically involves multiple stages, including the initial consultation, implant placement surgery, healing period (osseointegration), and the placement of the final restoration. 
In general, the process can take around three months. In a more complex situation, a dental implant can take up to six months to complete.

Gum disease is known to be a multifactorial oral disease. The factors that contribute to gum disease infection include but are not limited to stress, pathogenic bacteria infection, poor host immune response, poor plaque controls. In our dental practice, we have seen good gum healing responses from patients who had gum treatment, perform good plaque control with excellent oral care at home and maintain a regular 4- 6 monthly cleaning regime with us.   In conclusion, a multifactorial disease needs to be treated with continuous care with a dental practitioner.
