Gum Disease Treatment at East Adelaide Dental Studio
Symptoms of Gum Disease
Periodontitis is an infection of the gums around your teeth. The more aggressive it becomes, the further it spreads into your tissues. Eventually even the bone around your teeth will start to resorb (shrink). The situation is exacerbated by plaque and tartar buildup that isn’t cleaned away routinely with everyday brushing, flossing and regular checkups.
Some of the most predominant symptoms of gum disease to look out for include:
- Tooth mobility
- Bad breath
- Spaces between teeth
- Receding gumlines
- Gums that bleed easily
- Heavy tartar buildup

- …and possibly even Alzheimer’s disease.
Treating Your Gum Infection
Occasionally, adjunctive services such as antibiotic therapy or locally placed medications are needed. Our goal is to stop the infection to keep bone and gum loss from getting any worse.
After your scaling and root planing, we’ll show you special oral hygiene practices to help prevent disease relapse.
