Periodontal (gum) disease is a progressive condition that is the leading source of adult tooth loss. The symptoms of periodontal disease may present as puffy red and bleeding gums but in some cases appear without symptoms at all.
Bacteria that live in the plaque around the teeth and gums create irritation and infection which eventually if left untreated, cause bone loss of the jaw and the teeth begin to loosen. At Landmark Dental Centre, we provide optimum periodontal care through our customized periodontal programs created for the individual needs of the patient.
We provide 3-6 months scaling and root planing treatments with our highly skilled hygiene team and offer periodontal laser treatment, a leading edge technology.
The Kavo KEY3 laser treats periodontal issues ranging from bleeding gums to deep pockets around the teeth where infection causing plaque and calculus (tartar) build-up. The Kavo KEY3 has the capacity to determine where the calculus is under the gum and where it needs to be removed. This conservative treatment allows quicker and virtually painless healing time. The laser also treats canker and cold sores.
We work in conjunction with our local periodontal specialists which mean your care is a team effort. This is just one more way that we’re trying to ensure that you have a healthy smile for a lifetime.
