The team at ConfiDental take pride in caring for your natural smiles.
For those who need extra care and whose mouth health may be compromised, we offer periodontic treatments that focus on the prevention of gum disease and oral inflammation.
Periodontics is the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of periodontal diseases and oral inflammation
Treatment focuses on the supporting structures of the teeth, such as the gums, bone and other associated tissue.
This care is essential in controlling complications that can be linked to overall health and wellbeing.
Good oral health is the cornerstone of a healthy smile and can only be achieved with preventative dentistry and effective oral hygiene at home.
Our gum health can sometimes be compromised by diet, alcohol, smoking and even poor hydration.
Gingivitis and periodontitis, the two main forms of gum disease, involve inflammation of the gums and are preventable and treatable through a combination of appropriate dental hygiene and oral hygiene advice.
Gingivitis is an inflammation of the gums, usually caused by a bacterial infection. If left untreated, it can become a more serious infection and this is known as periodontitis. Both are major causes of tooth loss in adults.
Left unchecked, gingivitis can cause the gums to separate from the teeth. This can cause injury to the soft tissue and bone supporting the teeth. The tooth may become loose and unstable. If infection progresses, you may ultimately lose your tooth or need it extracted.
Control of gum disease, therefore, requires periodontal treatment.
