Don’t ignore your gums!

Gum disease, also called periodontal disease, starts with plaque buildup from poor brushing or flossing. 

Why do my gums bleed?

This plaque irritates the gums, causing inflammation (gingivitis) that makes them red and bleed easily.

Is it serious?

If left untreated, the inflammation can spread deeper, damaging the bone supporting your teeth.

Gum Disease

Take Action Against Tooth Decay

 

Early diagnosis and treatment of gum disease are crucial to prevent tooth loss and other complications.

Receding Gums

If you’re experiencing any of above symptoms, don’t wait-seek help.

Here's what you can expect during your consultation:

  • Discuss your symptoms and dental history.
  • Thorough exam: gums, redness, swelling, pocket depth.
  • Digital X-rays (optional) for jawbone health and bone loss.
  • Diagnosis and personalized treatment plan: deep cleaning, medication, or periodontist referral.
  • Clear communication: understand your options, make informed decisions.
    At Mount Kuring Gai Dental, we understand gum disease can be a source of worry. That’s why our gum disease consultations are designed to provide a clear picture of your oral health and outline treatment options.

Book your 6-monthly Dental Check-up & Clean- Detect Gum Disease Early

During your dental checkup, our dentist will perform a thorough scaling and cleaning, meticulously removing plaque and tartar buildup from both above and below the gum line.

By removing harmful bacteria, cleanings prevent the progression of gingivitis and periodontitis.

Gum Disease and Pregnancy

Hormonal changes during pregnancy can also affect your oral health.

Schedule a prenatal dental checkup: Talk to our dentist. They can assess your gum health and recommend a personalised cleaning plan.

Taking care of your oral health during pregnancy is crucial for both you and your baby.

Gum Disease & Cardiovascular Health

Cardiac and vascular surgeons often require a dental checkup as part of their patient treatment plans. This is because research suggests a potential link between gum disease and heart problems.

Let our team of dental professionals collaborate with your cardiac or vascular surgeon to ensure you’re well-prepared

Today I had a broken tooth repaired at Mount Kuring-Gai Dental Centre by Dr Marcelle Girgis. Everything was first class and I heartily recommend them. They even took the trouble of playing my choice of music during the procedure. I was also pleasantly surprised at the bill which I assumed would be higher.
