Periodontics – Preventing Gum Disease

Periodontics is the study of the supporting structures of teeth, as well as diseases and conditions that affect them. We specialise in the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of periodontal (gum) disease.

If you do show signs of periodontal disease, we will explain this to you & give clear instructions of home-care techniques with the aim of stopping it progressing further. We will also recommend you see our hygienists for frequent monitoring & treatment. This may include taking detailed measurements, advice and cleaning your teeth. Cleaning can be done under local anaesthetic if this is required.

Our hygienists will also remove staining that can be caused by food, drink & smoking; among other things. They will tailor a treatment plan to your individual needs & review this frequently.
