Gum Disease Treatment

Gum (periodontal) disease is a major factor in many health issues and diseases in the body, and at Everton Hills Dental Clinic in Brisbane, we endeavour to keep your mouth as healthy as possible

Gum disease has been linked to many issues in the body, including heart disease, stroke, diabetes and even Dementia! This is why maintaining optimal oral health is so important, as keeping your mouth healthy means keeping your body healthy, too!

At Everton Hills Dental Clinic in Brisbane we strongly believe in the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of gum disease. If left untreated, gum disease can cause decay, loose teeth and in severe cases even tooth loss!

Dr Tina Marles and her highly skilled team use expert knowledge and a light touch to diagnose and treat gum disease efficiently with the least amount of pain possible.

Symptoms of gum disease…

Preventing gum disease is always preferable, but sometimes no matter how often we brush we can still be susceptible to it. There are many symptoms of gum disease, of which some include:

  • Bleeding gums when brushed or flossed
  • Red, swollen or tender gums
  • Mouth sores or ulcers
  • Receding gum lines
  • Bad breath
  • Constant bad taste in the mouth
  • Loose teeth

If you are experiencing any of the above we urge you to make an appointment with us as soon as possible. Gum disease can become quite severe and if left untreated can result in tooth loss!
