Gum Disease Treatment in Prahran

If you suspect you’ve developed some type of gum disease, it’s highly recommended that you see a dentist as soon as possible to stop it from causing any further problems. At Just Dental Group, our dentist can provide affordable treatment for gum disease that will improve the state of your dental health. They’ll examine your teeth and gums to determine if you have gum disease and will recommend a suitable gum disease treatment for you.

The Two Stages of Gum Disease

Stage 1 – Gingivitis

Gingivitis is an early form of gum disease, and it happens when plaque builds up along the surfaces of teeth, particularly where gums join teeth or where it is hard to clean. Fortunately, this can be rectified by scheduling an appointment for gingivitis treatment, where our dentist will thoroughly clean your teeth and gums.

Stage 2 – Periodontitis

If gingivitis isn’t treated, it will develop into periodontitis. This form of gum disease can cause destructive and irreparable damage to the gums and supporting bone, which will cause teeth to become loose and fall out if not treated in time. Just Dental Group can provide treatment for this condition or refer you to a periodontist in Prahran for more advanced periodontal disease treatment.
