Gingivitis is a completely reversible condition if professional cleaning and good home care is carried out. Most patients will benefit from professional cleaning every six months. We also recommend twice daily brushing and using dental floss or interdental brushes once per day to treat gingivitis.
The destruction to the supportive tissues of the teeth, the gums, ligament or bone caused by periodontitis is irreversible. However, the treatment provided by our dental hygienists in Ivory Dental Care in Malahide will prevent any further progression of the disease, and if caught early enough, can restore your gums to full health.
Our dentists and dental hygienists in Malahide will tailor a course of treatment for you depending on the severity of your periodontal disease. This could range from a single visit routine cleaning up to several visits for deep cleaning using numbing agents to make it a more comfortable experience. The success of your periodontal treatment is very much dependent on good oral hygiene practices at home. Our dental hygienists will give you a customised home care regime as well as an advised maintenance plan for return visits to ensure that your gums remain healthy for life.
