Maintaining healthy teeth and gums
Gums that bleed after you brush your teeth are a typical sign of gum disease in Perth. Other classic signs include swollen gums, bad breath, and teeth that feel loose in your mouth. These could all be indications of serious conditions that require professional treatment. At Elite Perio, we offer a range of contemporary solutions to the problems of gum disease in Perth.
Oral health difficulties
Many people experience the warning signs of gum disease at some time in their lives. Gum disease begins to develop when bacteria under the gums sticks to the surfaces of the teeth. A hard layer – known as calculus or tartar – forms, and produces toxins. These toxins slowly break down the surrounding tissues. Left untreated, your gums could detach from your teeth.
Tackling gum disease in Perth
We can treat receding gums by performing soft tissue grafts. In this procedure, carried out under local anaesthetic, we take small pieces of soft tissue from your palate, and use them to restore your gum line. This reduces the effects of the gum recession, and may also restore the aesthetic balance of your smile. It can help to make your teeth less sensitive, too.
You don’t need to have bleeding gums to come and see us. Whatever condition your gums are in, we can provide you with up-to-date hygiene advice that will help to keep them clean.
In some cases, gum disease in Perth can lead to the loss of one or more teeth. If this has happened to you, or if you’ve lost teeth for other reasons, we can provide stable and long-lasting dental implants. In this procedure, we’ll place small metal posts into your jawbone. New teeth, customised to meet your needs, are then securely attached to the posts. You can use the new teeth just like natural ones. They stay in your mouth, and are easy to clean. If you care for them properly, they can last for decades.
We’re always happy to discuss any concerns you may have about gum disease in Perth. We have many years of experience in providing oral health solutions.
