Periodontitis, known more commonly as ‘gum disease’, is an inflammation of the gums and surrounding areas of the tooth, and is extremely common in most patients. Caused by the buildup of plaque and surrounding bacteria, left untreated periodontitis can have dramatic long term consequences, including weakening of the jaw bone and the loss of teeth.
The good news is that the onset of periodontitis is most often gradual, and easily recognizable, occurring over a long period of time. The even better news is that it’s also an easily preventable and reversible process. Brinsworth Dental can provide a number of different treatment options based on your individual situation and needs. If more complex treatment is required, we have a strong working relationship with a renowned local specialist, who we are more than happy to refer you to.
