Periodontal Treatment


Caringbah Dentists focusing on gum health

At The Caringbah Dentists, our dentists use their expertise to provide both surgical and non-surgical treatments to achieve and maintain your dental health.

Our Dentists are skilled in treating periodontal diseases or gum diseases. They have undertaken advanced training in surgical and non-surgical periodontal disease treatment procedures.

If you have gum disease, it is important to get it treated immediately because infected gums can even lead to tooth loss. At The Caringbah Dentists, we start with the least invasive non-surgical treatment options. However, in more severe cases surgery may be necessary. Oral surgery is nothing to worry about. Performed by our caring dentists, the surgical procedures are completely safe for you to undergo.

Prevent Gum Desease img

Gingivitis treatment

Gingivitis or gum inflammation is the first indicator of gum disease. It is important to understand that not all gingivitis may progress to your gums.

Gingivitis is caused by the build-up of plaque and tartar in the gum line, causing the gums to become inflamed and bleed easily during brushing and flossing. Not all gingivitis may progress to serious gum disease, but it is important to get your bleeding gums checked as early as possible to prevent further complications.

Scaling and root planing is typically the first line of defence against gingivitis and gum diseases. An ultrasonic device is used to remove plaque and tartar from under the gum line around the root, and from the teeth surfaces.

In the early stages of gingivitis, scaling and root planing is typically sufficient to arrest further progress of the disease. However, if you do not pay attention to your oral hygiene even after the scaling and planing, you may still develop gum diseases again.

Gum disease treatment

If the gum tissues become severely infected, the infection can spread to the teeth and even the supporting jaw bone. Depending on the extent and severity of the gum disease, our dentists may recommend treatment options like pocket depth reduction, regeneration, or soft tissue grafts.

In pocket reduction surgery, the gum tissue is folded back and the bacteria, hardened plaque, and tartar are removed from underneath. The flap is then sutured back in place.

Dental implants

If you have lost your tooth due to gum disease, trauma, injury, or any other reason, dental implants can completely restore the functionality of your tooth. A titanium implant is fixed into the jawbone and capped off with a dental crown. This is the most natural and closest you can get to a tooth replacement.
