Advanced treatment and care for gum disease

Periodontitis is the last, chronic stage of gum disease. It can contribute to systemic conditions such as diabetes and heart disease, and can lead to your teeth becoming loose and ultimately falling out if not correctly managed.

Why do I need periodontal treatment?

Sometimes, routine hygiene appointments are not sufficient to achieve gum health and a more specialised treatment is required. Specialist periodontal treatment primarily focuses on achieving gum health and ensuring that it can be maintained for the long term.

Most periodontitis cases can be resolved with non-surgical periodontal therapy. More severe cases of periodontitis or other gum disorders might require surgical management (such as pocket reduction or regenerative procedures, gum recession coverage, bone grafting to regenerate lost bone and / or implant placement). Our specialist periodontist uses the latest minimally invasive surgical techniques and high-magnification equipment to reduce postoperative discomfort.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • How can I help prevent periodontitis at home?

    It is important to maintain an excellent oral hygiene routine at home, particularly if you are at a higher risk of periodontitis. Ensure you brush and floss twice a day, using interdental brushes if advised by your dentist. It is also important to visit your dentist and hygienist regularly, as they can professionally clean areas of your mouth you are unable to reach at home.

  • Does periodontal treatment hurt?

    You may experience some discomfort from periodontal deep cleaning, as it is much more thorough than a standard hygiene treatment. However, you shouldn’t feel any pain.
