Here Is Our

Approach To Gum Disease

One of the major conditions our dentists will assess your mouth for during a routine check-up is gum disease, as this can greatly affect your oral health. Our team are both experienced and highly trained in this field.

Types Of Gum Disease

In its early stages, gum disease is known as Gingivitis, and this condition can successfully be reversed with daily brushing, flossing and regular cleans by a dentist. Gingivitis is caused by a build-up of plaque both on and around the teeth, resulting in minor infection and inflammation. This form of gum disease does not include any loss of bone and tissue that hold teeth in place, however the longer plaque and tartar are on teeth, the more harmful (and hardened) they become.

If left untreated, gingivitis can advance to a condition known as Periodontitis (meaning “inflammation around the tooth”). This causes the gums to pull away from the teeth and form infected ‘pockets’. The body’s immune system fights the bacteria as the plaque spreads and grows below the gum line, however this actually causes the bone to break down, along with the connective tissues that hold the teeth in place.

Without successful treatment, the bones, gums, and connective tissue that support the teeth are destroyed, resulting in loose teeth that require removal.

Are You Suffering from Gum Disease?

In order to prevent gum disease worsening and turning into Periodontitis, it’s vital that you’re aware of the signs and symptoms of this condition. These include:

  •  Persistent bad breath
  •  Red or swollen gums
  •  Tender or bleeding gums
  •  Pain when chewing
  •  Loose teeth
  •  Teeth that are sensitive to hot or cold

Don't Risk It!

Where To Find Us

Dr Nipuni Thilakaratne and her assistant were fabulous. So gentle, kind and patient. The best experience I have had at a Dentist in many years. I would recommend this Dental Practice to anyone.


My very first dental experience. At the front desk Janet worked magic very pleasant and over welcoming. Heather also pleasant. Dr Erin Partridge did wonders to my teeth im very happy with. Margaret Butterfield as the assistant made it very comfortable for me thank you all soo much. You deserve a 10 star rating


Dr. Nipuni is the finest dentist I have taken treatments from. She is very professional, kind, flexible and gentle. In my recent treatment, Dr. Nipuni spent her valuable time lavishly in listening / comforting me, explaining the procedures, advising how to followup with the post treatment care. Most importantly, I didn't feel any pain during her caring treatments. 😄😄😄 I would highly recommend her and the KR dental to my friends and any patient needing gentle dental care.
