Individuals can safeguard their smiles and maintain optimal oral health for years by prioritising gum health and seeking specialised care.

Gum specialists, also known as periodontists, have specialised training and expertise in diagnosing and treating gum diseases and conditions. Choosing a gum specialist ensures you receive comprehensive and personalised care tailored to your specific gum-related concerns, leading to optimal treatment outcomes and long-term oral health.

Gum specialists offer a wide range of services to address gum-related issues, including gum disease treatment, gum recession treatment, gum surgery, dental implant placement, and periodontal plastic surgery. They also provide preventive care, such as routine exams and cleanings, to maintain gum health and prevent future problems.

It is recommended to have your gums checked by a dental professional at least twice a year during routine dental exams and cleanings. However, if you have gum disease or other gum-related concerns, your periodontist may recommend more frequent visits to monitor your gum health and provide necessary treatments.

While gum surgery may involve some discomfort during and after the procedure, advancements in sedation techniques have made the experience much more comfortable for patients. Your periodontist will discuss pain management options with you and take steps to minimise any discomfort associated with gum surgery, ensuring a positive and stress-free experience.
