Periodontics (Gum Therapy)

Periodontics (Gum Therapy)

Caring for our gums can often be overlooked as people tend to focus purely on their teeth. However, our gums are vitally important to our oral health, supporting and holding our teeth. Periodontal disease, also known as gum disease, is caused by bacterial infections. These bacteria are found in the plaque that coats our teeth, which can build up over time without the right care and attention. If the bacteria infect your gums, they become inflamed and the infection can spread as far as the bone underneath your teeth. It’s vital that you find the best gum disease treatment in Dubai to keep your gums and teeth as healthy as possible.


At Drs. Nicolas & Asp Dental Clinic, our team of specialist periodontists can assess your needs and offer fantastic gum disease treatment. Dubai is at the forefront of modern technology, which we embrace in all of our treatment plans.


Gum Disease Treatments in Dubai

At Drs. Nicolas & Asp Dental clinic, our periodontists specialize in the prevention, evaluation, management, and treatment of periodontal diseases using the latest techniques. Where possible, we will always try and save you from tooth loss.


At the simplest level, treatments to help with gum disease start with scaling, where your teeth are professionally cleaned by your periodontists or dentists in Dubai. This reaches all the places that toothbrushes can struggle with, such as in between the teeth, and gets rid of the plaque build-up responsible for gum disease.


Root planing is the next step for some patients with gum disease. The procedure involves cleaning the tooth root that has become infected and removing any tissue which is damaged beyond repair. Your dentist can also check if you have any periodontal pockets, where gaps between your teeth and gums form. These pockets can be places where bacteria build-up, so need to be thoroughly cleaned and treated if necessary.


Where gum disease has affected the bones in your jaw, it is possible to carry out bone and jaw grafts on the affected areas to restore function and promote growth.


We also offer cosmetic gum treatment to improve the appearance of gums. We use the latest gum contouring techniques to build up gum tissue in areas where it is lacking or trim it in areas where it is overgrowing.


In some rare cases, it may be impossible to save your tooth. If this does occur, rest assured our expert team will discuss cosmetic options such as dental implants with you. We are proud to offer some of the best dental implants in Dubai to fix your smile. The implants are inserted into the area where your tooth root used to be and screwed into your jaw using a titanium screw. They can then support a lovely, realistic false tooth or set of teeth in place of those you have lost. Our periodontists have a wealth of experience in cosmetic procedures such as this and will work with you to achieve the best smile possible.

Gum Disease Prevention

Great oral hygiene habits can prevent gum disease. Regular brushing and flossing, frequent visits to your dentist, and antiseptic mouthwashes are all essential in looking after your gums. Our dentists and periodontists strive to make sure you have all the information and education you need to properly care for your gums.
