Proper Treatment for Periodontal Disease in Victoria

Often referred to as gum disease or periodontitis, periodontal disease consists of extreme levels of inflammation around the tissue of the tooth as well as the jawbone in advanced stages of the condition. There are different types of the disease, including: 

  • Chronic periodontitis
  • Necrotizing periodontitis
  • Periodontitis developed as a result of systemic disease

Treating Periodontal Disease 

If you or your child has developed periodontal disease, the good news is that it is very treatable. During a consultation, Dr. Michael Mulholland will perform a periodontal exam to determine the severity of the condition. If it is only at the stage of gingivitis, only one of two regular cleanings will be necessary.

However, should the condition have progressed to the point of becoming periodontal disease, Dr. Mulholland will discuss with you your treatment options, which could include:

  • Scaling and root planning
  • Tissue regeneration
  • Pocket elimination surgery

If you’ve been experiencing pain or discomfort around your gum line, it’s time to see a dentist immediately. Call Sherwood Family Dental today to schedule an appointment.
