Periodontics pertain to the diagnosis and treatment of diseases that affect your gum tissues. Periodontal disease (or gum disease) is probably the most common oral problem faced by Canadians. If left untreated, it can lead to painful receding gum lines and even tooth loss. What complicates matters is the fact that gum disease can be hard to detect in its early stages. Early signs can include sore, swollen and bleeding gums. That’s why Santé Dental in Halifax recommends having periodic periodontal screenings to detect and treat problems before they progress into their more advanced stages.
For gum disease that’s still in its early stages, we recommend gum therapy. This involves root planning, scaling and various cleaning methods to eliminate plaque build up and other threats to your gum lines. If you have questions or concerns, contact us for more information. Our team will collaborate with you to ensure you get the right treatment for your dental needs.
