Gum Treatment

There are a variety of treatments for gum disease growth. They include surgical and nonsurgical therapies that control bacterial growth. The two main diseases that individuals experience throughout their lifetime due to a build-up of plaque on their teeth are:

Gingivitis

Gingivitis is the early stage of gum disease. It incurs as inflammation of the gums (usually) caused by bacterial infection. If left unchecked and untreated, it could lead to the separation of your gums from your teeth.

Periodontitis

Periodontitis is advanced gum disease which occurs when gingivitis is left untreated. The gum margin (where the gum meets the tooth) becomes weak and periodontal pockets (spaces between the tooth and gum) increase leaving room for bacteria to become trapped and further inflame the gums. In the latter stages of the disease, bone loss occurs

Contouring

A minimally-invasive cosmetic procedure involving the reshaping or removal of excess gum tissue with the use of laser technology. The gentle removal of this tissue by a laser results in no bleeding or cuts

Discolouration repair

Gum discoloration can affect the entire gum or patches of the gum. It is typically more evident on those individuals with a gummy smile. The minimally invasive technique through laser, easily and painlessly removes unsightly spots on the gum with little to no recovery time.
