What does periodontal treatment mean?
Periodontics refers to treatments concerning the gums and tissues that surround your teeth, as well as the bone that supports them.
Some periodontal conditions are hereditary, but most are a result of not giving enough attention to your oral health routine. While everyone will experience some form of plaque build-up on a daily basis, this is usually removed by daily brushing. However, when proper care isn't taken, or some of the build-up is missed, or there is considerable deterioration in your gum health, this can lead to complications with your gums that require specialist attention.
After your consultation, your dentist will be able advise on the best treatment options for you and your needs.
