We will take care of your oral health
Gum disease is known medically as periodontal disease or periodontitis. It’s a major cause of tooth loss in adults, especially older people.
Gum disease is very common in Australia, with nearly one-third of adults having moderate to severe periodontitis. Gingivitis is even more common with more than half of adults having some form of Gingivitis.
Periodontal disease starts as gingivitis as a result of plaque and tartar build-up in pockets between the teeth and gums.
Gum disease treatment at Ocean View Dental helps to prevent tooth loss and restores oral functionality.
Our periodontal treatments also help to avoid serious complications that can develop due to gum disease – infection can travel from the mouth via the bloodstream to other areas of the body, including vital organs.
How does it feel?
Gum disease or periodontitis is a dangerous gum infection that harms soft tissue and, if left untreated, can kill the bones that hold your teeth. Periodontitis can cause tooth loosening or tooth loss.
Periodontitis is prevalent, yet it is largely avoidable. It is mainly caused by inadequate dental hygiene. Your odds of successfully treating gum disease and lowering your risk of developing it can be considerably increased by brushing and flossing at least twice a day, twice a day at night, and scheduling routine dental exams.
Gums that are in good health are firm, light pink, and tightly affixed to teeth. Gum disease can cause the following signs and symptoms:

  • Gums that are swollen or bulging
  • Gums that are bright red, dark red, or purplish in colour.
  • Easily bleedable gums.
  • Gums that are sensitive to the touch.
  • When cleaning or flossing your teeth, you may vomit blood.
  • Chewing is painful.
  • You have pus between your gums and teeth.
  • Stinky breath.

How do I prevent it?
In many cases, gum disease is preventable with good oral hygiene backed by preventive dentistry.
You can minimise the risk of periodontal disease by:
  • Maintaining a routine of regular brushing and flossing.
  • Getting regular dental check-ups and professional dental cleanings.
If you suspect you may have periodontitis contact us now – early treatment is crucial to avoid any further damage to your oral health!
We love our patients, and we are happy to hear that they love us just as much!

Roxanne Starkey
The ladies are absolutely fantastic, I am terrified of dentists from a previous experience. I needed a wisdom tooth removed this was my first ever tooth extraction and I was terrified but these ladies made me feel so calm and explained everything to me before, through and after the process and it was entirely pain free. I highly recommend the team at Ocean View Dental
Steve Fryar
I had to have an emergency extraction and they accommodated me superbly. I am a very nervous dental patient at best but found their re-assurance fantastic at putting me at ease.
I was happy with the service I received from Anna and Tayla. They made me feel comfortable. Friendly, efficient and clean surgery. I was in pain and they saw me within a couple of hours.
Kevan Morgan
Arranged an online booking for a very sore toothache. Reception process was excellent and Anna was really informative regarding the problem I had and clearly explained the issues. An excellent caring & competent clinician which was very reassuring. Would thoroughly recommend this practice.

Kelly Gosden
Kimberley and the staff at Ocean View Dental Surgery are very kind, caring and professional. I highly recommend them to anyone wanting a great team to look after your dental needs.
Tania Aish
Amazing really caring practice. I had an awfully painful toothache and the got me in within 5 mins of me calling and stayed open after closing just to accommodate me. Their first priority was to get me out of pain. The young ladies at this practice were amazing and go above and beyond for their patients. I’ve already recommended this dentist to several of my friends. Hands down best customer experience I’ve had in a long time. Keep up the good work Oceanview, I can see why you were highly recommended on the Peninsula Facebook page
Eileen Ordish
I have been using Oceanview dental for quite some time. Just wish that I had found them much earlier. The work that Anna has done for me is amazing and the care given knowing that I have other health issues. I cannot speak too highly of her and the staff. I would recommend them to everyone. ????????????????????????

You can expect to see some improvements after a few days after the treatment, but it may take a while for all of the symptoms to go away completely. In most cases, gingivitis usually clears up within 10 to 14 days. However, if your condition is more serious, it could take longer to treat.

A person cannot remove the build-up tartar and plaque at home. It needs professional treatment. Plaque and tartar can progressively damage teeth and surrounding tissue.

In various clinical studies, it has been shown that antibacterial mouthwashes can reduce plaque biofilm, kill bacteria in hard-to-reach places below the gums, and eliminate bacteria on non-tooth oral surfaces including the cheeks, tongue, and more.

Though gingivitis, the earliest signs of gum disease, can be reversed with dental treatment and proper at-home dental hygiene, once the gum disease gets to the level of periodontal disease, it cannot be reversed. If you have periodontal disease, all your dentist can do is treat it to try and control the infection.
