Gum Treatment

Gum treatment is carried out under local anaesthesia therefore it is a painless procedure. It is a deep scaling procedure that involves the removal of your tartar under the gum.

Screening for gum disease forms an integral part of your routine examination. Gum disease describes swelling, soreness or infection of the tissues supporting the teeth. There are two main forms of gum disease: gingivitis and periodontal disease.

  1. Gingivitis is a gum disease characterised with redness of the gum, gum bleeding on brushing without bone loss. This is an early stage of gum diseases and if left untreated it will progress to periodotitis.

  2. Periodontitis is a gum disease characterised with bone loss, tooth mobility and loss of tooth attachment. This is a late stage form of gum disease that can still be treated however if left untreatetd, it can progress to tooth mobility and loss of tooth.
