It is just as important to look after your gums as it is your teeth. If your gums bleed when you brush them and become red and swollen, it could be a sign of gum disease. This is also known as gingivitis. If this is left untreated it can progress to periodontal disease which could lead to tooth loss.
To keep your mouth healthy, we recommend that you regularly attend hygiene appointments, as recommended by Danny de Villiers.
We offer the following treatments to keep your gums and mouth healthy:
After doing a scaling of your teeth to remove tartar and plaque, we use our Air Polisher to polish your teeth and remove all the staines and discolourings. This leaves you with sparkling clean teeth and a fresh mouth.
This is also ideal for smokers to remove all the nicotine staining.
Laser Bacterial Reduction
“The Secret Killer” addresses the link between gum infection and heart attacks, cancer, Alzheimer’s and other diseases.
We use the latest laser technology to reduce the bacteria in the pockets around your teeth which enables your immune system to heal the inflamed gums.
Laser Assisted Periodontal Treatment
This is a conservative non-surgical treatment for your periodontal disease in your gums and the bone around your teeth.
We firstly remove any debris and calcified deposits around your teeth with a scaling and root planing. This is then followed by laser treatment which removes the infected tissue around the affected teeth. At the same time, the laser will also kill the bacteria that causes the gum disease and this promotes healing of the gums.
All of this is done pain free, as we use topical gel to numb the gums before we do the treatment.
