Periodontal (gum) Treatment

Preventative care is incredibly important, and with a Bondi Beach dentist, you can get the care you need to achieve oral health.  If you wait until you have a problem before you go to the dentist, you can end up with a wealth of issues that are expensive, painful, and even potentially deadly. One of those problems is periodontal disease.  It is essential that you keep your bi-yearly appointments with your Bondi Beach dentist in order to protect yourself from this dangerous disease.

Periodontal disease is a very serious inflammation of the tissue that supports your teeth. This tissue is needed to keep your teeth in place and your mouth healthy.  Once the tissue becomes inflamed, dental bills will stack up, and the afflicted will run the risk of losing their teeth.

Adult Tooth Loss

In fact, most adult tooth loss is in one way or another related to periodontal disease.   Because of that, it is very important to know the causes of the problem, as well as the way to prevent it from occurring.

The biggest cause of periodontal disease is plaque buildup.  People think they completely fight off plaque by brushing their teeth. Brushing your teeth at home is important, but it is not the only tool you need to keep periodontal disease at bay.  Most people get plaque in places the toothbrush cannot reach.  Plaque forms below the gums, and when that happens, a deep cleaning is needed to get rid of it.  Without a deep cleaning, the plaque will thrive, and will likely lead to Periodontal Disease.

Related Causes

There are other causes of concern that our Bondi Beach dentist can address, such as smoking, diabetes, stress, and some medications.  While your Bondi Beach dentist cannot take away your stress or eliminate your diabetes, he can work with you to keep periodontal disease from appearing.  Your Bondi Beach dentist has the tools needed to fight against Periodontal Disease, even when you have risk factors that make you a candidate.

In fact, your dentist is likely the only person that can protect you from this disease.  In most cases, the symptoms are not easily detected usually until the problem becomes more severe.  When people don’t feel discomfort, they do not realize anything is wrong. However, your Bondi Beach dentist can look inside of your mouth and find signs of disease.  Because of that, the dentist is the best way to fight back against this disease.
