Gum disease is a chronic disease that infects many adults in Australia. Left untreated, it results in gum recession, tooth mobility and sensitivity and is the leading cause of tooth loss over the age of 50.
The infection can display in various forms including gingivitis and can progress to periodontitis.
Here at Mooloolaba Dental (formerly Fenton Dental) and Swell Dental by Mooloolaba Dental, we take the assessment and treatment of gum disease very seriously. At every check-up appointment we screen your gums for the presence or risk of gum disease.
Treatment for this condition involves a very thorough deep clean and education on how to look after your gums and teeth properly. We would also recommend regular check-ups and maintenance cleans to ensure everything is kept healthy and functional for as long as possible.
