What is Gum Disease?

Gum (periodontal) disease is an infection of the supporting tissues of the teeth which is often caused by poor oral hygiene habits. When thorough oral hygiene is neglected plaque begins to build up on the teeth and harden, eventually affecting the gums. 

If left untreated, gum disease can lead to a variety of oral health issues including inflamed and bleeding gums, a receding gum line, bacteria-filled pockets between the teeth and gums, and eventual bone loss.

Gum Disease Therapy

Periodontal treatment methods depend upon the type and severity of the disease. At Caledon East Dentistry your dentist will work with you to create a treatment plan based on your particular case. 

Once your periodontal treatment has been completed, our dental team will recommend that you have regular dental examinations and preventive therapy, approximately four times a year.

Cosmetic Gum Therapy

If you feel that your gums rest too low or too high on your teeth and you are unhappy with your smile, gum grafting surgery may be right for you. This cosmetic dental procedure may be able to even out an uneven gum line and reduce the perceived length of the teeth to give you a smile you can be proud of.

Placing Dental Implants

Periodontics also includes the placement of dental implants beneath the gum line as part of the process to replace missing teeth. Once a dental implant has been placed, and the gums have healed, an artificial tooth is attached to the implant. This procedure can provide a number of oral health benefits.
