Periodontics

Periodontitis:

Periodontics is a field of dentistry that deals with the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of diseases and conditions of the gums and other supporting structures of the teeth. Periodontists are specially trained to diagnose, treat, and prevent gum diseases such as gingivitis, periodontitis, and other diseases of the gums.

Root Surface Debridement:

Root surface debridement (RSD) is a dental procedure that involves the removal of plaque and calculus from the root surface of the teeth. It is used to help improve the health of the gums, reduce gum inflammation, and reduce the risk of periodontal disease. RSD is typically done using a combination of hand instruments, ultrasonic scalers, and air-polishing devices.

Crown lengthening:

Crown lengthening is a dental procedure that involves reshaping gum tissue, bone, and some of the underlying tooth structure to expose more of the natural tooth. This procedure is most often performed to improve the appearance of a “gummy” smile, to prepare the tooth for a restoration such as a crown, bridge, or veneer, or to gain access to a tooth for a root canal. The goal of crown lengthening is to create a balanced and proportional smile.

Gum Grafting:

Gum grafting is a surgical procedure used to correct gum recession that occurs when the gum tissue surrounding the teeth wears away. The goal of gum grafting is to cover the exposed roots of the teeth and restore the protective gum tissue. This procedure can be used to protect the roots of the teeth from further damage due to decay or abrasion from brushing and to improve the appearance of the smile.

A Periodontist is a specialist in treating periodontal (gum) disease and other related issues, such as dental implants, crown lengthening, and gum grafting. Visiting a Periodontist can help improve your overall oral health, reduce the risk of tooth loss, and improve the aesthetics of your smile.

You should visit a Periodontist if you have any signs or symptoms of gum disease, such as red or swollen gums, receding gums, bleeding gums, bad breath, or loose teeth. Even if you do not have any of these symptoms, it’s important to visit a Periodontist for regular checkups and screenings to ensure the health of your gums.

During your visit, the Periodontist will perform a comprehensive exam to assess the health of your gums and teeth. This includes taking x-rays, measuring the pockets around your teeth, and evaluating the bone structure around your teeth. The Periodontist may also perform other tests, such as periodontal probing, to check the health of your gums. After the exam is complete, the Periodontist will discuss any treatment options that are necessary.

Depending on the severity of your condition, the Periodontist may recommend a variety of treatments to improve your gum health. These treatments may include scaling and root planing, antibiotics, medication, or surgery. Your Periodontist will discuss the best treatment option for you based on your individual needs.

To help prevent gum recession, it is important to practice good oral hygiene. This includes brushing your teeth twice a day with fluoride toothpaste, flossing daily, and using an antiseptic mouthwash. Additionally, make sure to visit a dentist regularly for professional cleanings and checkups.

Genetics can play a role in the health of your teeth and gums, but it is not the only factor. Poor oral hygiene, certain medical conditions, and lifestyle choices can also increase your risk of losing teeth. It is important to practice good oral hygiene and visit a dentist regularly, even if your family members lost teeth early.

Both the dental nurse and dentist were compassionate and caring. They made sure I was comfortable before carrying out any procedures, and spoke to me as I was a bit anxious about getting work done-
They were punctual, and managed to fit me in at the last minute. Easy to contact via WhatsApp, with quick response.

Been twice and both times the young dentist is extremely kind and reassuring. Had a tooth extraction today and was seamlessly done. My old dentist was quite rude and abrupt. I'm very glad to have found a dentist that takes pride in her work. Well done to all the team. Thank you so much.

Absolutely fantastic service!! I have had teeth out (well roots) had a new denture the service has been second to none. I have a real fear/phobia of dentists I explained this they have been so understanding and supportive. Simon explained every step clearly so I knew what was happening and at what stage. I can't reccomend him enough.

The staff were very good professional and friendly. Very accomadating to work/school scheduals with appointments. Me and my children had a good experience in the surgery. Also with colouring facilities available it helped to keep the children occupied. The head nurse was amazing and went above and beyond to meet all our needs.
