Periodontics

Periodontics Dentist Doncaster East Periodontics is the dental specialty that focuses exclusively on the inflammatory disease that destroys the gums and other supporting structures around the teeth.

A periodontist specialises in the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of periodontal, or gum disease, and the placement of dental implants.

Periodontists treat cases from mild gingivitis to more severe gum diseases. Your Doncaster East dentist offers a wide array of dental services, such as scaling and root planing, root surface debridement, and regenerative procedures.

In cases of severe gum disease, your periodontist can also perform restorative surgical procedures. Additionally, they are trained in the placement, maintenance and repair of dental implants.

At DonEast Supreme Dental, we provide you with dental treatments beneficial not only to your teeth but your gums as well.

Causes and Prevention of Periodontal Diseases

Bacteria cause periodontal disease by forming dental plaque, the sticky substance that forms on your teeth a couple of hours after you have brushed.

To eliminate the bacteria in your mouth, the cells of your immune system release substances that cause inflammation and damage to the gums, periodontal ligament, or alveolar bone.

Practising good oral hygiene and regularly visiting your dentist help prevent gum diseases. Daily brushing using a soft-bristled toothbrush and proper flossing help remove most of the plaque from your teeth.

Professional cleanings by your Doncaster East dentist will control plaque in places that a toothbrush or floss can’t reach.

If you skip your oral hygiene routine or your dental visits, plaque build-up speeds up and may spread to the gums. Proper flossing may help dislodge the plaque; but if it is not removed, the bacteria will continue to multiply, causing a more severe infection.

The build-up of plaque below the gum line leads to inflammation of the gums. Gum tissues begin to detach from the tooth forming a space between the tooth and gums.

The spaces encourage further plaque accumulation since it becomes more difficult to remove plaque. If ignored, the inflammation may spread to the gum ligaments and alveolar bone, causing these structures to be damaged.

Another issue is that if plaque is left to build-up on teeth, it hardens and turns into tartar. Since calculus is rougher than the tooth enamel, even more plaque attaches to it.

Using tartar-control toothpaste may help the slow build-up of calculus around your teeth, but it can’t affect the tartar that has already formed below the gum line.
