Are you dealing with bleeding or painful gums? If yes, don’t ignore the problem and schedule a visit at Afflux Dentistry in Mississauga, Ontario. Periodontal or gum disease generally refers to an infection of the gum or tissues that surround your teeth. It is one of the common conditions that result in tooth loss in the majority of patients.
To prevent the onset of gum disease, you should focus on good oral hygiene and routine dental exams that can help in detecting an underlying infection at an early stage. Our team of periodontists in Ontario assist patients with the right medication to reduce the effect of infection before starting with the treatment.

What To Expect On Your First Visit?
At Afflux Dentistry, we craft a personalized treatment plan after establishing a diagnosis to determine the severity of gum disease. Within one or two visits to our clinic, we aim to bring the infection under control by prescribing the medication that works for you. In case, there is severe inflammation, we’ll deep clean the infected tooth and gum to remove the bacterial growth and tartar. By polishing your teeth, we repel the occurrence of stains and plaque.
Since gum disease can only be controlled not cured, we suggest patients to do medicated rinse, brush twice, flossing after every meal to keep control on the gum infections.
