Periodontal Treatment

Without adequate brushing, flossing, and routine cleans, plaque biofilm can collect in areas throughout the mouth. As it calcifies, firm areas of tartar buildup are left behind. These deposits cause the gums to become inflamed and irritated, a condition that Brisbane CBD families ought to know can lead to tooth loss. The dentists at First Dental Studio are here to help you keep your smile for life.

Symptoms of Periodontitis

Periodontal infections, often referred to as gum disease, typically cause symptoms such as

  • Gums that are sensitive or bleed easily
  • Bad breath (halitosis)
  • Receding gum tissues (“long teeth”)
  • Teeth that are loose or mobile

Periodontal Therapies

Treating gum disease usually starts with a series of deep cleanings to remove the source of infection from your mouth. Our dentists use special instruments to scale the buildup from the root surfaces deep within the gum “pockets” where they are hiding.

After your deep cleaning, we will carefully monitor your recovery and review your oral hygiene habits to facilitate the best recovery possible. Ultimately, our goal is to help soft tissues reattach to the tooth so that no more bone support is lost.
