What is Periodontics?
If you are a smoker or have bad breath, gum inflammation and bleeding, receding gums, dental plaque build-up (also known as tooth calculus), a periapical abscess or you are gradually losing your jaw bone and tooth attachment to the bone, then you may have an infection of the gum tissue also known as periodontal disease. We can diagnose and treat your periodontal disease.
Most people should have a periodontal examination at every dental check-up which is recommended every six months. However, people suffering from periodontal disease should have a periodontal examination every two to three months.
If you have lost bone or soft tissue as a result of a periodontal disease, we can conduct bone graft and tissue graft procedures to recover the volumes of bone withdrawn and the aesthetics of the soft tissue. We can also conduct crown lengthening, pocket reduction procedures, root planning, periodontal plastic surgeries, oral and soft tissue bone transplant surgeries, dental implants and all procedures associated with the treatment of gum diseases.
We offer you:
- A comprehensive periodontal examination to identify early signs of periodontal disease or the extent of the disease if you already have it.
- A treatment plan scoped to suit your individual needs and target the disease.
- Digital radiology imaging in our clinic.
- Dental hygiene education program to help you overcome the disease and minimise the potential of reinstatement.
- Standard injections to control pain during clinical procedures.
- Digitalised sterilization tracking of all instruments meeting current standards of infection prevention and control.
- Monitoring of your condition and improvement after dental procedures
- Dental records managed under strict standards of privacy and confidentiality
