Periodontics is a specialty of dentistry that focuses on preserving, treating and maintains healthy gums and oral tissue. ‘Periodontal’ literally translated means ‘around the tooth.’

Norton Dental Ancaster offers an array of periodontal procedures, both non-surgical and surgical to effectively treat all stages and types of periodontal disease such as:

  • Tooth Scaling
  • Root Planing
  • Dental Implants
  • Tissue Regeneration
  • Flap Surgery

Gingivitis is the earlier stage of periodontal disease (gum disease) and occurs when bacteria and tartar build up around the teeth and gum line resulting in swollen, irritated and bleeding gums.

Gum disease is what occurs when gingivitis is left untreated. When the plaque and calculus are not removed, they are left to irritate the gums to the point where the begin to recede and pull away from the teeth forming periodontal pockets. The space that has now been created between the gums and teeth allows the bacteria to venture even further to access the tooth’s roots resulting in infection or even tooth loss.

Gum disease symptoms may include:

  • Shifting teeth
  • Swollen, red, or tender gums
  • Gums that bleed after brushing
  • Bad taste in the mouth
  • Loose teeth
  • Changes in bite
  • Bad breath
  • Gum recession

Dr. Taimish at Norton Dental Ancaster recommends regularly scheduled dental exams and professional teeth cleanings at least twice a year to help aid the early detection of oral health issues such as gum disease and gingivitis.
