Periodontal Treatment

At Phung Tran Dental we offer professional periodontal treatment to protect your teeth and gums from bacteria that cause gum disease.

Periodontal Treatment

Phung Tran Dental Group provides a range of affordable dental procedures including general dentistry, general cosmetic dentistry, and advanced dental care.

Periodontal treatment is the specialist cleaning of your teeth and gums to help control the bacteria that cause gum disease. Gum disease is a sneaky, progressive disease that can eventually destroy the gum and bone which support your teeth. At Phung Tran Dental we offer professional cleaning at our clinic to assure that this condition is easily prevented.

What is Periodontics?

Periodontics is a branch of dentistry which focuses on gum disease. Gum diseases can vary in severity and are usually curable if treated in a timely fashion. For example, common problems like gingivitis are temporary and in most cases completely reversible with proper periodontal treatment and care. If periodontal issues are not treated appropriately, a simple problem like mild gingivitis can become a serious case of periodontitis – the most threatening form of gum disease. Periodontitis can lead to major dental complications including the deterioration of the gums and tooth-supporting ligaments. As a result, the gums can pull away from the tooth, bones may be lost or at worst, your teeth may entirely fall out. Our friendly staff at Phung Tran Dental Clinic will make sure you don’t get to this extreme stage!

 

Why would you need periodontal treatment?

The purpose of periodontal treatment is to arrest the development of gum disease. When it comes to periodontics, our top priority at Phung Tran Dental Clinic is to stop your gum disease from turning into a serious condition which may require periodontal surgery. That may sound severe, but that’s exactly what can happen if periodontal symptoms are not treated in an effective manner. What may begin as bad breath or bleeding gums, can develop into the loss of multiple teeth if your symptoms are not properly treated. Periodontal conditions are caused by the bactercial build-ups in between your teeth and gums which harden to form plaque. If left untreated, plaque can harden to form calculus which can be difficult (and painful) to remove. Put simply, if you experience gingivitis or any symptoms associated with periodontal conditions, you need to see your dentist at Phung Tran Dental Clinic before it’s too late.

What happens during my periodontal treatment?

At the beginning of your appointment, your Phung Tran Dental Clinic consultant will determine the most appropriate cause of action for you. A minor case of gingivitis can be treated with a simple scale and clean, removing all traces of plaque and calculus from your teeth and gums. For more severe periodontal conditions, dental surgery may be required. Typically, severe periodontal disease is managed by procedures such as root planning which involves cleansing the area under your gums. Bone grafting and gum contouring may also be used if your dentist believes it is necessary. If you do need surgery, there’s no need to worry. Our dentists are experienced with a range of surgical techniques and have that delicate, gentle touch that you’ve come to expect from Phung Tran Dental Clinic.

What happens after my periodontal treatment?

After this procedure, we will also provide you with an individualised home dental care plan to help you manage your symptoms and ensure they do not return. If you have had periodontal surgery, we will organise a post-surgery checkup at the time of your procedure. You’re never alone when you use Phung Tran Dental Clinic, so please don’t hesitate to call us if even the slightest symptom of periodontal pain reappears.
