Periodontics: Pocket Reduction

​Pocket Reduction & Gum Disease

Your gum line and bone tissue should fit properly snugly around your teeth. When you have Periodontal Gum Disease, this supporting tissue and bone is destroyed, forming the so called "pockets" around your teeth.

Over time, these "Pockets" become deeper, making bacteria susceptible to live in a larger space between your gums and bone. These pockets can accumulate a lot of bacteria, resulting in tissue and bone loss. Eventually, if there is too much bone lost, teeth may have to be extracted.

What is bacteria?

Bacteria is the most responsible for dental cavities - mostly known as mutans streptococci, most prominently Streptococcus mutans and Streptococcus sobrinus, and lactobacilli. If left untreated, these could lead to gum disease which will result in pain, tooth (bone) loss and infection.
