Emergency Dental Care

One of our doctors is on call 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to help you through your dental emergency.


Flap surgery

Your periodontist makes tiny incisions in your gum so that a section of gum tissue can be lifted back, exposing the roots for more effective scaling and root planing.

Soft tissue grafts

When you lose gum tissue, your gumline recedes. You may need to have some of the damaged soft tissue reinforced.

Bone grafting

The bone graft helps prevent tooth loss by holding your tooth in place. It also serves as a platform for the regrowth of natural bone.

Tissue regeneration

This allows the regrowth of bone that was destroyed by bacteria.

Get In Touch


Periodontal is the term used to describe a disease that affects your gums and surrounding tissue, and is quite often simply referred to as “gum disease”.

These are the most common symptoms that can be a good indication you may have gum disease:
Red, swollen gums
Bleeding gums

If your gums start to look a bit red and they feel a bit swollen, it is important to go to your dentist as soon as possible as gum disease at this stage is easier to treat. Bleeding gums are also another good sign that you may have gum disease, and they can especially bleed during brushing and flossing.

What Is Periodontitis?

If gum disease is left untreated it will eventually turn into an advanced case of the disease which is called Periodontitis. Periodontitis means “inflammation around the tooth” and can lead to teeth falling out. At this stage of the disease you can expect more symptoms:
Loose Teeth
Bad Breath/Taste
Gum Abscesses
Trouble Swallowing
Gums Receding
Excessive Saliva
At this advanced stage your body has a natural reaction for the gums to recede away from the infected teeth, causing them to become loose and eventually fall out (if left untreated). The bacteria can spread along your gum causing this reaction on all your teeth, which could potentially leave you with no remaining natural teeth left. The infection will also attack your bone that supports your teeth, and can cause bone loss of the jaw, causing further complications down the line with treatments you may want to have e.g. dentures and dental implants.

  • Bacteria (plaque) that builds up on your teeth
  • Built up bacteria (plaque) will then eventually become a hard substance called tartar (calculus)
  • This hard substance will irritate your gums, causing them to bleed and for you to experience other symptoms
  • The longer tartar is left untreated, it will eventually progress into advanced Periodontitis and your teeth can start to become loose and fall out

Once you have tartar on your teeth you will not be able to remove it with conventional brushing and you will require a professional dental hygienist visit where they will be able to use the professional tools to safely remove it.
