Periodontics is a field of dentistry that focuses on the support structures of teeth and preventing gum diseases such as swollen gums. Ignoring gum health can cause gum recession and bone density loss over time. Periodontics includes multiple treatments such as surgical corrections, dental implants, and oral health maintenance procedures.

Preventive Measures

At Cove Dental and Implant Clinic, we prioritise preventing and treating gum disease to avoid serious teeth health complications. Regular oral hygiene routines like brushing twice daily, flossing, and using interdental brushes can help remove plaque. Schedule routine visits to our hygienists for thorough cleaning as it will eliminate bacteria and maintain periodontal health.

Recognising Gum Disease Progression

Untreated gum disease can progress to periodontitis, where immune system overreaction results in gum tissue recession. This stage needs thorough cleaning and continuous maintenance. Periodontitis requires lifelong attention to prevent further deterioration.

Periodontal Therapy Techniques

After you’ve received composite bonding treatment, it’s important to take care of your teeth to make sure it lasts long. Here are some tips on how to care for your composite bonding:

Scaling and Root Planing:

These deep-cleaning methods remove plaque and tartar under gum tissues which is crucial for gum disease control.

Gum Grafting:

Replacement of lost gum tissue protects tooth roots. It can be done through transplanting healthy tissue or utilising donor tissue.

Periodontal Laser Treatment:

Laser removal of diseased gum tissue provides benefits like reduced discomfort and minimal gum shrinkage as compared to traditional oral surgery.

Crown Lengthening Surgery:

Surgical exposure of covered tooth structure provides both cosmetic and functional purposes. It helps in securing dental crowns and enhancing smile aesthetics.

Dental Implants:

Titanium implants are inserted into the jawbone and covered with dental crowns to make it an effective solution for tooth replacement.
Focusing on periodontal health is essential for preserving overall oral well-being. With the right periodontal therapy choices, Cove Dental and Implant Clinic can help in the effective management of gum disease and related complications.
