Gum Disease Therapy in Inner West Sydney

Proactive Care at Your Smile Centre

With the right oral hygiene, gum inflammation can often be prevented. If a lapse in brushing or flossing occurs, the gums above the gumlines may become inflamed and cause gingivitis. At Your Smile Centre, our knowledgeable dental team will show your Inner West Sydney family how to prevent or reverse gingivitis symptoms as early as possible.

A Risk to Your Future Smile

When gingivitis isn’t treated, it can progress into something more severe. Periodontitis impacts both the bone and gums around the teeth. It can have an effect on other health problems like diabetes or high blood pressure, making them more difficult to manage. Without treatment, periodontitis will get worse as more bone is lost, causing tooth mobility or loss. Understanding the disease is the first step in treating it.

A Risk to Your Overall Health

If periodontal disease is allowed to continue, the bacteria under your gums spread toxins into your supporting bone and cardiovascular system. This infection can carry it to other areas of the body. Studies show that untreated gum disease is directly correlated with several risk factors —heart problems, premature babies and stroke — and many other medical conditions.

Periodontitis can never be fully reversed or bone regrown where once lost. It can only be halted at the point it is at. After your initial periodontal treatments, our highly trained dentists will likely recommend a series of maintenance appointments to help you keep your smile healthy.
