Professional care for teeth and gums
If you’ve noticed bleeding when you brush or floss your teeth, this might be a sign of gum disease in Perth. Unpleasant breath, swollen gums, and teeth that feel lose are all things that would benefit from professional treatment. At Elite Perio, we look after your oral health by providing a range of modern solutions to the problems of gum disease in Perth.
Oral health and hygiene
At some point in their lives, many people will notice one of the warning signs of gum disease in Perth. It begins to develop when bacteria under the gums sticks to the teeth’s surfaces. These bacteria can form a hard layer, known as calculus or tartar, that then produces toxins. These toxins damage the surrounding tissues, which can cause your gums to detach from your teeth and recede.
Soft tissue grafts are one way to improve gums that suffer from recession. In this procedure, we’ll give you a local anaesthetic, and use small pieces of soft tissue from your palate to restore your gum line. This reduces the effects of your gum recession, and could help to restore the natural appearance of your smile. Also, it can help to make your teeth feel less sensitive.
There’s no need to wait until visible worries develop before you come to see us. Whatever condition your teeth and gums are in, we’re able to assess your oral hygiene and provide up-to-date advice on how to keep your teeth and gums free from disease.
Replacing lost teeth
Untreated gum disease in Perth can sometimes lead to tooth loss. If you’re missing one or more teeth, our dental implants will provide you with long-lasting, stable replacements. First, we’ll place small metal posts into your jawbone, in a minor surgical procedure. Then, after a period of healing, we’ll securely attach replacement teeth to the posts. The new teeth are customised for your particular needs, andremain in your mouth just like natural ones. If you look after them properly, they can last for decades.
We’re happy to talk to you about any concerns you might have around gum disease in Perth.
