Dental Implants Periodontist

A periodontist is a dental specialist who focuses on the treatment of periodontal disease, also known as gum disease, and other oral conditions. Rest assured, your local White Dental Sydney Clinic can help refer you to a specialist periodontist if required. Find out more about gum disease, below.

Periodontitis is the primary source of tooth loss in adults. When oral conditions affect the soft and hard tissues that support the teeth, gum disease can occur. To avoid gum disease, it is imperative that you look after your dental health and hygiene. It is important you see your dentist twice a year, so you can avoid these diseases before they even happen. 

There are a few ways gum disease can be treated. Mild gum disease can be treated by scaling your teeth which goes beyond the general cleaning that you receive with your regular checkup. More serious periodontal disease treatment may need reshaping of your gums through surgery. In some cases, the tooth may need to be removed.
