A periodontist can assist with treating gum disease as they specialise in prevention, diagnosis and treatment of advanced periodontal disease. Periodontists provide a range of surgical and non-surgical procedures.
No special preparation is needed, however we advise you to maintain a regular oral health routine at home
Talk to your dentist or specialist to give you advice about daily preventative dental care, such as teeth brushing techniques and how often you should floss.
Note: Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. Before proceeding, you should seek advice from an appropriately qualified health practitioner
Periodontal disease, also known as gum disease, can be hard to diagnose on your own. Much of the time, it goes unnoticed with little pain and few symptoms until it reaches a severe stage.
