Why is periodontal treatment needed?
If periodontal disease is untreated it is likely to worsen. Gaps (pockets) form between the gums and the teeth and it is here, next to the bone in the depth of the pockets that the bacteria flourish. As the periodontal disease progresses, more bone is lost, the pockets deepen and more gum tissue is involved. Eventually the teeth can become loose and may have to be removed.

What is the treatment?
The Periodontist will assess the condition of your gums and discuss this with you.
Treatment varies depending on the severity of the periodontal disease. Treatment involves removal of plaque and calculus above and below the gum; this is done by thoroughly scaling the teeth often under local anaesthetic so it is not painful.
Your dentist will discuss the details of your treatment with you.
What can I do?
You will need to remove the plaque from your teeth and gums thoroughly and regularly
