Protect Your Teeth and Health with Our Gum Disease Treatment

You may be experiencing some of the common symptoms of gum disease, such as bleeding gums, bad breath, and red or swollen gums.

Gum disease is a potentially serious infection that can lead to tooth loss if not treated. Left untreated, gum disease can also increase your risk of other health problems, like heart disease and stroke.

At Prospect Road Dental, we offer comprehensive gum disease treatment, including scale and clean, scaling and root planing, antibiotic therapy, and periodontal surgery. We understand that every patient is different, so we offer personalised treatment plans that are tailored to your specific needs. Contact us today for a consultation!

Signs That You Might Need Gum Disease Treatment

Without treatment, gum disease can lead to loss of teeth – so don’t wait any longer! Please call us if you are experiencing any of the following symptoms:
Early signs of gum disease are usually gums that are red, swollen, and bleed easily. Contact Prospect Road Dental if you think you might have gum disease because we can still reverse it at its early stage.
Gum recession, a symptom of gum disease, is when your gums pull back from your teeth, exposing the root surfaces of your teeth. Gum disease treatment at Prospect Road Dental is the most effective way to stop receding gums and prevent further damage from occurring.
Don’t suffer any longer. If you’re in pain when you eat or your teeth are sensitive, Prospect Road Dental can help with our comprehensive range of gum disease treatments.
If you have bleeding gums when you brush or floss your teeth, you might be in need of gum disease treatment. Our dentists are skilled and experienced in treating gum disease in all its forms, and we will work with you to create a treatment plan that meets your needs.
Don’t let gum disease go untreated. Gum disease can damage the bone and tissue that support your teeth, resulting in loose teeth and, eventually, tooth loss.
If your bad breath is persistent and you’ve tried all of the usual remedies with no success, it might be caused by gum disease. Fortunately, Prospect Road Dental has gum disease treatment that can help you get rid of bad breath and improve your overall oral health.

Gum disease can take several forms:

  1. Gingivitis: Gingivitis is a reversible condition that is the first stage of periodontal disease. It is caused by excessive plaque accumulation around the teeth. Symptoms may be absent, and the condition may remain unnoticed until more severe conditions develop. The most common signs are swollen gums or redness in the mouth and bleeding when brushing or flossing. It is crucial to detect gingivitis early so you can prevent further damage, as well as prevent tooth loss down the road.
  2. Periodontitis: This is an advanced stage of gum disease. It spreads below the gum line, affects your teeth, and deteriorates your jawbone, leading to tooth loss and jawbone atrophy. Some of the symptoms are chronic bad breath, receding gums, and pus-filled gingival pockets.
  3. Aggressive Periodontitis: At this stage, gingival tissue, gingival ligaments that hold your teeth in place, and bone are rapidly destroyed.
  4. Periodontitis: This is when the gums that support the teeth become inflamed, and bone is lost. Associated with gum recession and gingival pockets, this is the most common type of gum disease. The deterioration process usually progresses slowly.
  5. Systemic Periodontitis: This is gum disease that develops due to systemic diseases, such as diabetes, heart disease, and respiratory disease.
  6. Necrotizing periodontal disease: This form of gum disease is most common in people suffering from systemic diseases such as malnutrition, immunosuppression, and HIV. Living tissue is necrotic, which means that the gingival tissue, periodontal ligaments, and alveolar bone are not consumed by disease but are deprived of nourishment.
Mild gum disease is known as gingivitis. It causes inflammation, but it usually does not manifest symptoms. It is possible to have gingivitis without realizing it. Fortunately, it can be fixed with good oral hygiene and dental care, such as scaling and cleaning.
As gingivitis progresses to its advanced stage, it becomes periodontitis. While it is not reversible, it can be managed with more intensive oral hygiene and professional treatments, including scaling and planing, antibiotic therapy, and periodontal surgery.
Gum disease treatment can cause some discomfort. However, with recent advancements in dental equipment and techniques and developments in anaesthetics, periodontal treatment has become less painful. Prospect Road Dental offers sedation options and pain medications to minimise discomfort. Patients can be nervous about dental treatments, which is why our dentists use varying techniques to help them cope. In most cases of discomfort or pain following treatment, over-the-counter or prescription painkillers are available.
It is recommended to schedule cleanings once or twice each year for the average person. However, if you have gum disease, you will need to schedule cleanings more frequently than twice a year. Your dentist might recommend that you visit a little more often, sometimes every three to four months, to prevent the progression of gum disease and further complications.
Gum disease treatment costs vary depending on its severity and the type of treatment required. A checkup and cleaning for mild gum disease can cost between $200 and $400. Scaling and planing for advanced gum disease can cost between $122 and $150 per tooth. In severe cases, you may have to undergo surgery, costing up to $4,000.
