How Does Gum Disease Progress?

Gum disease is typically a silent condition which shows no tangible symptoms in the initial stages. Its primary cause is plaque, a sticky film of bacteria caused by poor oral hygiene. When plaque accumulates on the teeth, it leads to gingivitis, the first stage of gum disease. This is characterised by gum inflammation, bleeding, and bad breath. If not treated, the bacteria penetrate the gumline, causing gum infections, receding gums, loose teeth, and eventually tooth loss. Timely intervention can halt the progression of gum disease, helping protect your gums and teeth from further damage.

Gum Disease Prevention in North Fremantle

It's easy to forget our gums when all the attention is centred around teeth. Gums provide the structure which holds your teeth together, providing support and stability to allow your teeth to function and stay healthy.

At Superior Smiles, our dental treatments begin with patient awareness and education. We encourage active participation from our clients, arming you with the tools and knowledge to take control of your oral health for healthy gums that support strong teeth and optimal oral health.

Our gum care solutions include:

Dental Checkups & Cleaning

Emerging oral problems are not always visible at an early stage. Dental checkups can identify issues such as the beginning of gum disease, cavities, or an impacted wisdom tooth with a thorough oral examination and X-rays.

At Superior Smiles, we recommend regular dental checkups to all our patients every six months. This allows us to examine your mouth, check for any changes in your teeth and gums and monitor your overall oral health. We also perform a dental cleaning to remove plaque or tartar buildup to prevent it from spreading below the gumline and protect you from tooth decay or gum infections. We take this opportunity to discuss your concerns or any questions you may have about your oral health, providing gentle support and guidance in any way you need.

Oral Hygiene Plans

We offer customised oral hygiene plans tailored to your dental and lifestyle needs. With dental cleaning and polishing to remove bacteria, personalised products, dental tools recommendations and instructions on oral maintenance at home, we aim to provide you with complete protection for optimal oral health. We also offer the innovative Airflow & Biofilm Therapy, a non-contact dental cleaning which uses only air, water, and powder particles to remove stains and bacteria for a whole mouth clean.

Healthy Gums Begin with Proactive Care

Take control of your gum health with quality dental care tailored to your needs. Our caring dentists are here to support you at every stage of your dental journey, be it general, holistic, or cosmetic. With a warm and comfortable environment, the latest technologies and techniques and oral health partners who always put you first, we ensure your smile stays vibrant and healthy for life.

After not being to a dentist in many years, I tried to research dentists in my local area and came across the amazing reviews for Superior Smiles and decided to book an appointment with Dr. Rani. I was so happy with the service I received- all the staff were extremely friendly and professional. I felt like I was in very good hands with Dr. Rani, who talked me through every stage of the appointment step by step, in a clear and gentle manner. I have already booked my next appointment to have some minor work done, as I am extremely happy to return to this dentist. Thank you Dr. Rani and team 🙂

After experiencing terrible episode with dentist many years ago, I have always kept a wide berth and only go when I am in extreme pain. Had my first visit with Dr Rani and she was just wonderful, explained everything as she was going I was made aware of cost and given the option to proceed. Was very caring and I had no pain what so ever , I still have a couple of more visits to go however no more fear and for the first time in many years had experience a comfortable time at the dentist. For people who have a morbid fear I can assure you it will be gone after you experience a visit with Dr Rani staff are also wonderful, I will follow up with the six monthly check ups as required without hesitation. Highly recommend this practice for people who are experiencing anxiety
