South Cliff Dental Group provides advanced gum treatment, restoring the health of these tissues through a range of procedures.
What is Periodontics?
When tartar is left untreated, tooth decay, cavities and other dental complications like periodontal disease can develop. As the disease progresses, it attacks the tissues holding the teeth in place, including the gums and jaw.
Good oral hygiene and cleanings can help prevent periodontal disease. Book a regular cleaning at one of our South Cliff Dental Group practices to stay on top of your oral healthcare. Or, if you would like to see a periodontist, contact us for a consultation where we can assess your gum health and provide the best treatment plan options for your needs.

Risks of Periodontal Disease
Gum disease is very common, even in its early stages. If left untreated, severe tissue damage can occur, leading to bone loss. As a result, teeth become loose and may lead to extraction.
Periodontitis can lead to other health issues — such as strokes, heart disease, respiratory issues and more. This risk makes prioritising oral healthcare habits and maintenance vital for overall health. Other factors, including smoking, diabetes, cancer, hormonal changes and more, also increase the likelihood of getting periodontitis.
If you’re worried about your gums or think you might have periodontitis, book a time to see a South Cliff dentist at a location convenient to you.
