Periodontal Treatment Ballarat:
Periodontal disease is a common disease of the gums, affecting approximately 10% of the adult population. Generally, the disease increases with age although, in rarer forms, it can also affect young children. It is particularly important to treat periodontal disease early, as letting it untreated leads to all sorts of undesirable consequences: Bad breath, receding gums, mobility and movement of teeth, gum infections or abscesses, or in some cases, even the loss of teeth.

Early Diagnosis Leads To Better Dental Cure
You don’t have to undergo a full-blown periodontal disease to start your treatment. The earlier we identify the condition, the easier and more effective the dental treatment will be. We encourage you to undergo regular dental check-ups and self-monitor your oral health at home. Usually, we find that a check-up every six months is good enough to ensure early diagnosis of any underlying conditions and diseases. Depending on your own individual needs and conditions, however, the recommended check-up rate may vary.
Our dental clinic, Bakery Hill Dental, is situated at Ballarat East Vic, 29 Victoria Street Ballarat East. If you believe you suffer from a periodontal disease, make sure you contact us as early as possible, so that we can diagnose and treat you efficiently and effectively.
