Let us take care of your Oral Hygiene

From time to time, many people suffer from a form of Gum Problems and worry about loosing their teeth, but there’s no need. Here at the Aesthetic Dental Zone we have numerous periodontal treatments available to keep your gums healthy at affordable prices.

Dental treatments

The following dental treatments may be recommended to treat gum disease, periodontitis and anug

  • scale and polish
  • root planing (debridement)
  • antibiotics


 Scale and polish

To remove plaque and tartar (hardened plaque) that can build up on your teeth, your dentist may suggest that you have your teeth scaled and polished. This is a ‘professional clean’ usually carried out at your dental surgery by a dental hygienist.

The dental hygienist will scrape away plaque and tartar from your teeth using a special instrument, and then polish your teeth to remove marks or stains. If a lot of plaque or tartar has built up you may need to have more than one scale and polish.

Root planning

In some cases of gum disease or periodontitis, root planing (debridement) may be required. This is a deep clean under the gums that gets rid of bacteria from the roots of your teeth.

Before having the treatment, you may need to have ananaesthetic (painkilling medication) to numb the area. You may experience some pain and discomfort for up to 48 hours after having root planing

If you have severe gum disease, periodontitis or anug, you may need further treatment, such as periodontal surgery. In some cases, it is necessary to remove the affected tooth. Your dentist will be able to tell you about the procedure needed and how it is carried out if necessary.
