Combatting Gum Disease

Dental Link Periodontal Care

Non-surgical periodontal therapy is one of the best ways to combat gum disease before it leads to tooth loss. At Dental Link, our Wembley Downs, Sorrento and Doubleview dentists work closely with you to keep your teeth healthy as long as possible.

An effective treatment focuses on keeping the bone and gum tissues around your teeth healthy, too. Unfortunately, they can be damaged when small amounts of plaque congregate beneath the gums. It later calcifies and causes receding gum tissue, along with bone loss.

Eventually, your teeth can become mobile or even fall out.

How We Can Help

If you have symptoms of bone loss, our dentists, hygienists and dental therapists provide gentle, deep cleanings to remove calcified build-up. These therapies encourage a healthy environment that inhibits the spread of disease.

  • Bleeding gums when you brush or floss
  • Visible gum recession (“long teeth”)
