Gum disease occurs when plaque and bacteria are left to build up on the teeth, causing infection. Dental scaling and root planing are two common methods used by our skilled dentists in Mill Hill to eradicate gum disease. We’ll also teach you how to improve your oral care routine to prevent future problems.
At our relaxing dental practice in Mill Hill, your dentist will examine your teeth and gums in order to accurately diagnose your gum disease. Your treatment will then be planned and carried out accordingly. We’ll ensure your comfort and understanding at each step of your treatment.
Our dental clinic in Mill Hill treats gingivitis with a scale and polish treatment to thoroughly clean the teeth and gums. Plaque and tartar will be removed with special equipment, leaving your mouth clean and healthy.
These more developed forms of gum disease require greater treatment over the course of several appointments.
Plaque and tartar will be eradicated, followed by a root planing treatment at our dental surgery in Mill Hill to decrease inflammation and remove bacterial pockets. You’ll have a local anaesthetic injection to numb the area, and you may experience mild sensitivity and discomfort afterwards. Antibiotics and painkillers can be prescribed to encourage recovery.
Severe gum disease has to be treated with gum surgery in order to successfully kill bacteria and restore oral health. In this case our expert dentist in Mill Hill may refer you to a periodontist.
