Healthy gums are very important for ensuring healthy teeth.
Inflammation of the gums or the tissue that holds the teeth in place – so-called periodontitis – can damage your ability to bite and even lead to tooth loss. To try and make sure this doesn’t happen, we start treatment promptly to slow down the process and maintain your long-term dental health. We always keep our patients fully informed regarding the condition they have and of any progress we make.
Our periodontal treatments include:
- scaling and root planing
- sub-gingival irrigation
- prophy-jet polishing
- plaque control instruction
- advice on toothbrush selection
- interdental cleaning instruction
