Inner West Sydney Periodontics: Your Journey to Healthy Gums

Gum health is often underestimated, but it’s a vital component of your overall dental well-being. Periodontal disease is the leading cause of tooth loss among adults in the developed world and should always be promptly treated.

It is caused by an inflammatory response to bacteria in the mouth and will often start in its milder form as gingivitis and if left untreated will eventually become periodontitis leading to the destruction of the gum and bone surrounding your teeth. It can often be painless until it has reached its advanced stages.

The good news is that gum disease is treatable, especially when caught early during routine check-ups and cleanings. That’s why we recommend regular six-month dental visits for most people. A periodontal assessment by our experienced team of dentists can identify the early signs of gum disease and intervene before it progresses. Don’t wait until you experience pain or discomfort.

If you’ve noticed bleeding gums, persistent bad breath, or any other signs of gum trouble, reach out to us right away!

Gum Assessments

Our Inner West team begins by thoroughly evaluating your gums, looking for signs of inflammation, bleeding, pockets and other indicators of gum disease. This gum health assessment helps us understand your unique periodontal health needs.

Periodontal Scaling & Root Planing

Scaling involves the removal of tartar and plaque from above and below the gumline. Root planing smooths the root surfaces, making it more challenging for bacteria to adhere. This process promotes gum healing and prevents disease progression.

Supportive Periodontal Therapy and Maintenance

Regular maintenance is crucial for managing gum health, typically occurs every three to four months and involves a thorough cleaning, gum assessment and sometimes X-rays to monitor your progress and maintain gum health.

Crown Lengthening Periodontal Service

It’s often performed for restorative or cosmetic reasons. For example, if a tooth is fractured near the gumline or needs a dental crown, crown lengthening may be necessary to provide sufficient tooth structure for proper restoration.

Soft Tissue Grafts

During this procedure, a small piece of tissue, typically from the roof of your mouth, is transplanted and grafted onto the affected area to restore gum tissue and protect exposed roots. In some cases, other graft materials can be used, such as synthetic grafts, or grafts from human or animal donors.

Gum Surgery

We have various surgical procedures available, including pocket reduction surgery, regenerative procedures and laser-assisted gum surgery. These surgeries aim to restore gum health and prevent further damage.
