Periodontal disease (or commonly known as gum disease) is an inflammatory disease of the support structures of teeth (the Periodontium). It usually starts with a non-painful condition of bleeding/inflamed gums (gingivitis), and can progress to a destructive disease where the periodontium is damaged or destroyed. The common symptoms include red and bleeding gums, bad breath, loose teeth and moving teeth (shifting position). Advanced Periodontal Disease can often lead to tooth loss. Successful treatment is dependent on early detection and intervention and a commitment to self- and professional-oral hygiene care. Contact us if you would like to make an appointment.

Problems like gum display can often be resolved by minor plastic surgery of the gum (gingival) tissue. Typically, these simple procedures can be done under local anaesthesia with a quick recovery time. More complex cases may involve the shifting of teeth (orthodontic treatment), surgery of the jaw bone (alveolectomy and osteoplasty) in addition to gum surgery alone.

Halitosis or bad breath can be quite debilitating for many people. It can cause serious social embarrassment and undermine your self-confidence. It also impacts on your close personal relationships leading to self-doubt, depression and can greatly reduce your capability in the work place when there are other people in the vicinity. If you would like your breath clinically assessed, please contact our practice to arrange an appointment.
