Gum and Periodontal Care

Gum health

Many people think you only need to be conscious of the state of your teeth when focusing on your oral health. However, the health of your gums is just as important. If you don’t take care of your gums, you might end up having gum disease, which can cause significant issues in the future.

At Central Hutt Dental, we can help ensure that you don’t end up having gum disease, gingivitis or periodontitis or help you restore the state of your oral health. We suggest you don’t wait for your symptoms to get worse, as the later you catch them, the more difficult it will be to reverse them.

What Is Gum Disease?

Gum disease can start when plaque builds up between your teeth and gums, with signs such as bleeding when brushing or swelling, sensitivity and pain in your gums. At Central Hutt Dental, we can get rid of the plaque and tartar or any other problems that cause the inflammation and help restore the health of your gum. Together with a home oral hygiene plan put together by your dentist, created personally for your own requirements, we ensure that your oral health will return to the best it has ever been.

Your treatment options will range from deep cleaning by our hygienist to medication such as antibiotics to reduce the swelling and pain in your mouth. Our experienced team will ensure you get the best treatment option for your needs and that your gum and jaw will remain as healthy as possible with some follow up appointments.
