Gum Disease Treatment – Let Evergreen Dental Show You The Way!

One of the most common symptoms we treat here at Evergreen Dental is gum disease, yet frustratingly, it’s also one of the most simplest to prevent. Also commonly known as gingivitis it’s often caused by poor dental hygiene or rather, the failure to remove the soft sticky colourless film we all know as plaque. Don’t be alarmed if you’re told that you have it, because you’re certainly not alone… around 85% of us will need gum disease treatment at some point in our lives.
So what are the symptoms?
If you notice redness, swelling, or bleeding of the gum area around the teeth, then there’s a strong chance you have gum disease. When plaque isn’t removed by normal daily flossing and brushing it produces toxins which irritate the gums causing them to become inflamed, swollen, and of course bleed. Over time any plaque which isn’t removed mineralises and forms into something called calculus and this can only be removed by professional dental cleaning and gum disease treatment.
The good, the bad, and the downright ugly!

At Evergreen Dental we like to think of ourselves as gum experts. As such our Chatswood dentist can inspect, identify, and deliver the very best gum disease treatment fast! Using a combination of regular checks and professional cleaning our team can get you back to full dental health in no time at all. That’s the good news, but what about the bad news… after all, there’s always bad news right?

Well…it’s this….

If the early stages of gum disease go either undetected or ignored, then they will evolve into something known as periodontal disease and that’s an entirely different beast altogether. Periodontal disease can cause severe bone and tooth loss and as you can imagine, treatment can be more difficult and far costlier to treat. What’s more, there’s evidence to suggest that periodontal disease is an underlying factor in a wide variety of other health problems. So if you want to avoid visiting us or indeed your physician more often that you’d like, then the importance of regular dental checks cannot be under-estimated.

Along with our residents dentists Dr Lin and Dr Chou, we can treat a wide variety of periodontal problems including swollen gum tissue, alveolar bone loss and tooth loss, using periodontal disease treatments such as scaling and root planing, gum or bone surgery, and dental implants.

Gum Disease Prevention  – Getting back to basics?

The key to gum disease prevention is all about getting back to basics and doing the simple things well. You can save yourself a whole load of aggravation, pain, and money by caring for your gums and in essence this boils down to three things.

• Brushing your teeth twice a day
• Flossing once a day…and…
• Visiting your Chatswood dentist for regular check-ups and cleaning

Okay so the last one is a shameless plug but you see how easy it is:-) By combining those three simple things, you could make gum disease a thing of the past.
