Frequently Asked Questions
Gum disease may be linked to a number of other health problems, such as heart disease, diabetes, and strokes. Maintaining good oral health can not only help prevent gum disease but also promote overall health and wellbeing.
Practicing good oral hygiene such as brushing and flossing twice daily, and scheduling regular dental check-ups can help prevent gum disease. Additionally, avoiding tobacco use and maintaining a healthy diet can also help to promote optimal oral health.
Treatment approaches for gum disease depend on the severity of your condition. In milder cases, thorough cleans and improved oral hygiene may be enough to prevent the disease progressing. In advanced cases, your periodontist may recommend scaling and root planing, or even surgery to remove infected tissue and promote healing.
Whilst there is no cure for gum disease, it can be effectively managed with the right care and treatment. By working with your periodontist to develop a personalised treatment plan, we can help manage your symptoms, prevent further damage to your gums and teeth, and maintain long-term healthy teeth and gums.
In early stages, gum disease may not cause any pain or discomfort. However, as the disease progresses, you may experience symptoms such as redness, swelling, or tenderness in your gums. In advanced cases, you may also experience tooth sensitivity, gum recession, loose teeth, and even tooth loss.
We understand that many patients may be concerned about the pain associated with periodontal treatment. At Shiraz Endo, our team uses local anaesthesia and the latest techniques to ensure our patients have a comfortable patient journey After the procedure, over-the-counter painkillers will help to manage any discomfort.
Periodontists are specialists in the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of gum disease and other conditions affecting the gums and supporting tissues of the teeth. By seeing a periodontist, you can benefit from their expertise in treating complex cases of gum disease, as well as their advanced training in surgical techniques and other specialised treatments.
Plaque build-up on the teeth is the primary cause of periodontitis. Other causes are smoking, hormonal changes (as in pregnancy or menopause), certain medications, family history, and conditions like diabetes.
What Our Patients Say
I just want to say thank you for making me feel at ease last Friday during my Re-Root Canal. I can’t actually believe how pain-free it was so thank you for getting me through it.
“I would like to apologise for getting a little emotional when I recently attended your practise. I was so grateful and appreciative for all your efforts and the hard work you carried out. You cannot imagine what it means to me. I would like to wish you and your team a very happy, peaceful and prosperous new year. Once again, many thanks and best wishes.”
Overall great experience with Dr. Nida at Shiraz Endodontics. She was very knowledgeable, professional, and explained everything clearly. She did a thorough oral examination on my molar, and I felt at ease during the consultation. The practice itself is conveniently located within Solihull, with onsite car park. I highly recommend Dr. Nida to anyone who needs an endodontist in the Midlands.
