Get Periodontics Treatment in Etobicoke

, , ,

September 22, 2017

Maintaining good oral health consists of more than just healthy teeth. Your gums and the bones in your oral cavity are just as crucial to your oral health as keeping your teeth cavity-free. When conditions such as gum disease arise, you will need periodontics treatment to get your mouth health on track. At West Metro Dental in Etobicoke, we offer in-house periodontics treatment in addition to general dental exams, which means we can both diagnose and begin treating conditions concerning gum health.

How do I know if I need periodontics treatment?

There are a number of symptoms that could be a sign of gingivitis, including:

  • Swollen, tender, or red gums
  • Bad breath
  • Bleeding gums

In addition to these symptoms, you may also be experiencing pain while chewing or notice that some of your teeth feel loose. If you have any of these symptoms, you could have a serious gum disease known as periodontitis.

What are the types of periodontics treatment?

There are a variety of both nonsurgical and surgical treatments available. The first step is typically a deep cleaning of the gums with a scaling and planing treatment, in which a special tool is used to scrape away tartar that has built up around the tooth’s root when deep pockets form in the gums due to gum disease. In many cases, this all the treatment one needs to treat their gum disease. In other instances, you may receive medication to apply at home using a fitted tray to wear on your teeth and gums at home. In serious cases of periodontitis, you may need a gum graft or a laser periodontics treatment to resolve your condition.

West Metro Dental was as pleasant an experience as a Dental visit can be. The office was clean and in a very accessible location. My one complaint is that I requested my x-rays be sent to an oral surgeon and they haven't responded to my request yet. Other than that the office has friendly professionals and is a good atmosphere!

Been a patient for 5 years. Dr Walia and his staff are incredible. Everyone greets me by name. Never wait more than 20 minutes for an appointment. The true definition of superior customer service and this is from a guy who worked in the customer service industry for many years. I've moved 3 times since being a patient and continue to go to west metro despite there being dentists closer to where I live. I always feel welcome.
