At Port Hawkesbury Dental Group we make it our practice to keep gum disease in check. We offer a full range of Gum therapy and treatment services for patients of all ages.

While gum disease is the leading cause of tooth loss for Canadian adults, in almost all cases, it's preventable.

Practicing good oral hygiene at home, and regular visits to the dentist can help ensure you have healthy gums.

What is Gum Disease?

Gum disease is the result of a bacterial infection in the gums that destroys the tissue that surrounds and supports the teeth.

Your Port Hawkesbury Dental Group team checks for signs of gum disease as part of any routine check-up.

That's because not all patients experience symptoms during the early stages.

What is the role of Soft Tissue Management?

The main goal of soft tissue management is to control gum disease.

Once we diagnose a patient with gum disease, we develop a personalized treatment plan to prevent the bacteria from progressing.

Oftentimes, we'll schedule frequent hygiene appointments, deep cleaning, and specialized home care routines along with antibiotics for an effective treatment.
