The gum treatments aim is fighting Gingivitis (infection of the gum) and Periodontitis (infection of the root surface and surrounding bone) which are common in more than 80% of people.

Because Periodontitis is a chronic disease that cannot be healed but can be stopped by proper professional gum treatment and very good compliance from the patient themself, we motivate people to solve this very serious and common condition by offering high quality affordable gum treatments.

How does periodontitis occur?

Initially, neglecting oral hygiene, bacteria will populate the surfaces between gum and teeth causing inflammation of the gum named gingivitis. Untreated, the infection will migrate onto the root surface infecting the surrounding bone causing bone loss known as bone pockets. Periodontitis can also be inherited; diabetes and smoking are just some of the other things that can cause periodontitis.

If gum disease is present gum treatment is the most important to perform, which will ensure a healthy basement required before starting any cosmetic procedure. The most basic nonetheless highly effective gum treatment is the manual removal of the pocket content (bacteria and their products, infected tissue, food impacted into the pocket and tartar build-up on the root surfaces under the gum) with special instruments under local anaesthetic or a gel applied into the pocket which makes the procedure pain free.

If untreated the pockets can develop an abscess (periodontal abscess) which can cause serious discomfort and pain as well as the incapacity of using the area where the abscess has developed. Furthermore, the bacteria infecting the pockets can go into the blood system affecting the heart and the joints.

In advanced stages of periodontitis, the teeth can be displaced creating gaps, killing the nerve or causing massive bone loss merging into tooth loss.
