Gum Infection Treatment

Gum Infection TreatmentIf you need gum infection treatment then our experienced dentists and periodontists (a dentist specialised in more advanced gum treatments) can assist you. Gum disease is one of the main causes of tooth loss, therefore, it is imperative that gums are kept healthy to preserve the teeth for as many years as possible. If you think you are suffering from a gum infection then seek emergency dental help as soon as possible.

What Are The Signs Of Gum Disease?

If you are unsure of what to look out for here are some common symptoms that someone with gum disease may experience:

  • Swollen, tender, or bleeding gums (especially when brushing the teeth).
  • Changes in how the teeth fit together or loose, wobbly teeth.
  • Spaces developing between the teeth.
  • Recession or shrinking of the gums.
  • Tooth loss.
  • The development of abscesses.
  • An increase in tooth sensitivity.
  • A bad or unpleasant taste in the mouth, bad breath, or pus discharge.


The worrying thing about gum disease is that many people will not experience pain until the advanced stages. Because of this, it can make it harder to treat. If you notice any of these signs then book in to see a dentist immediately.

Gum Infection Treatment

There are a number of things that can be done to treat gum disease. First of all, the teeth may need a scale and polish (a professional deep clean from a dental hygienist). This will remove plaque and tartar from the teeth. This method can also help to reduce and remove staining. A root planning procedure may also be helpful to clean bacteria away from the teeth roots. This procedure may need an anaesthetic to numb the area first. In addition to this, if the gum disease is more advanced, patients may need other surgical procedures, such as a tooth extraction.
