Are your gums painful? Do you have persistent bad breath, despite careful brushing? You may have symptoms of gingivitis or periodontal disease without knowing it.
One of our professionals will perform an evaluation of your condition and establish a treatment plan for your gums at our clinic on the South Shore. This plan can involve simple dental curettage to bone grafting, including possible surgery, all depending on the state of your gums. Make an appointment at Centre Dentaire de Brossard so that a dentist can get to work saving your gums!
Under local anesthetic, the dentist cleans the areas under the gums where there is bone loss, to protect the surface from bacterial growth.
Surgery for this type of condition involves replacing the gum with the aim of eliminating periodontal pockets where bacteria tend to build up. It is impossible for you to clean these areas yourself with a toothbrush. Even the dental hygienist cannot reach all the bacteria hiding there!
