Treatment for Gum Disease at CDC Dental

At CDC Dental, we’re dedicated to arming you with the knowledge and care needed to combat this common yet preventable condition.

What Causes Gum Disease?

It all starts with plaque, that sticky film on your teeth teeming with bacteria. If not brushed or flossed away, plaque can harden into tartar, setting the stage for irritation and gum inflammation. The toxins produced by these bacteria are the culprits behind gum disease, leading from mild gingivitis to more severe periodontitis.

Gum Disease: The Stages

Gingivitis: The stage act of gum disease features red, puffy gums that might bleed when you brush. It’s your body’s SOS signal, and thankfully, it’s reversible with diligent care.

Periodontitis: Ignore gingivitis, and you’re on a path to periodontitis, where the damage dives deeper, assaulting the gum tissue and bone, potentially leading to tooth loss.

Spotting the Signs

Stay on the lookout for signs like bleeding or swollen gums, persistent bad breath, receding gums, or changes in how your teeth fit together. These are your body’s alarms—don’t ignore them!

CDC Dental’s Approach to Battling Gum Disease

Our oral health program, spearheaded by our adept Oral Health Therapists (OHTs), is your frontline defence against gum disease. Here’s how we tackle it:

  • Scaling and Root Planing: This is our starting point for countering mild to moderate gum disease, meticulously cleaning below the gum line to evict plaque and tartar.
  • Antibacterial Strategies: Depending on your needs, we might introduce antimicrobial rinses or antibiotics to stave off bacteria.
  • Surgical Solutions: We’re equipped with surgical options to heal and restore gum health for advanced cases.

Why Choose Us?

Our OHTs don’t just clean; they’re detectives, spotting early signs of gum disease and collaborating with our dentists to craft your personalised care plan. Our goal? To keep your gums healthy, your smile bright, and gum disease away from your smile.

We’d love to check your smile and make sure it’s in tip-top shape. To book a visit, contact our team today.
