Periodontal dentistry specialises in the treatment of the supporting structures of the teeth, i.e. the gums and jaw bones. Our dentists are specialists in the treatment of periodontal diseases as well as methods of prevention. Gum disease is unfortunately widely spread among youngsters as well as adults nowadays. Around 40% suffer from chronic periodontics (gum disease and bone loss) and around 60% to 70% suffer from gingivitis (gum inflammation and bleeding). As with your teeth, the importance of regular dental check-ups and expert cleaning cannot be stressed enough where the health of your gums and jaw bones are concerned. Signs of gum and bone disease can be bad breath, continuous gum bleeding and loose teeth. However, severe cases can lead to, amongst others:

  • Teeth loss
  • Heart failure
  • Diabetes (if left untreated for a prolonged period)
  • Miscarriage
  • Spreading of strong types of bacteria

    You can do the following to maintain healthy teeth and gums:
  • Brush your teeth twice a day
  • Floss frequently to remove plaque between your teeth
  • Use mouth rinse daily
  • Reduce or quit smoking
  • Avoid drinking very hot or very cold liquids
  • Maintain a balanced and healthy food diet
  • Visit your dentist regularly for check-ups and professional dental care

Gum recession happens when the tissue surrounding the teeth detaches, causing the roots of the teeth to be exposed. It is a common dental problem which is all too often ignored until it becomes quite severe. Gum recession has negative effects on the aesthetics of your smile and can lead to the destruction of the supporting bone, tooth sensitivity and even tooth loss. In severe cases of gum recession, an operation involving a gum tissue graft might be required. A gum graft operation relieves you from current pain, avoids future pain and improves the appearance of your smile.
