Experienced Periodontal Care
Healthy gums are essential to the integrity of your teeth. Your gums provide support provide the nourishing foundation for healthy tooth roots. They also serve as a protective barrier between the harmful bacteria that can be found in the mouth and our bloodstream, where these bacteria can lead to internal inflammation and other health issues. Signs of periodontal disease should be treated promptly before the problem grows.
One common gum issue is a periodontal abscess. A periodontal abscess occurs when bacteria grow in the space between your teeth and gums. As the bacterial growth intensifies, your immune system battles it, leading to excruciating pain. Our experienced periodontists specialize in treating periodontal disease and will assess the extent of the abscess before determining whether extraction is necessary or preservation of the tooth is possible. If you are experiencing discomfort in your gums, don’t endure the pain while the situation worsens. Visit Abingdon Box Hill Family Dentistry for periodontal treatment.
