Gums are the Foundations

New patient consultations from £150

Everyone wants a bright, healthy smile. But did you know that taking care of your bones and gums is just as important as taking care of your teeth? Your bones provide support for your teeth, and your gums act as a barrier to keep bacteria out of your mouth. When your bones and gums are healthy, they help to keep your teeth in place and prevent tooth loss. Additionally, healthy bones and gums make it easier to clean your teeth, which helps to prevent cavities and gum disease. So if you want to keep your smile looking its best, be sure to take care of your whole mouth – not just your teeth!

Our Periodontal Treatments

Periodontitis is a serious gum disease that can lead to tooth loss and other health problems. The early stages of periodontitis may cause bleeding gums, bad breath, and gum recession. If left untreated, periodontitis can damage the tissues and bone that support your teeth, eventually leading to tooth loss. In addition to causing oral health problems, periodontitis has been linked to an increased risk of heart disease, stroke, and other chronic conditions. If you think you may have periodontitis, it is important to see a dentist or periodontist for diagnosis and treatment. With early diagnosis and treatment, periodontitis can be controlled and its progression halted.

Gum disease is a serious condition that can lead to tooth loss and other problems if left untreated.

There are a variety of periodontal treatments available to help treat and reverse gum disease. Deep cleanings involve removing plaque and tartar from below the gum line, and can help to reduce inflammation and bleeding. Methane blue is an FDA-approved antibiotic gel that helps to kill bacteria below the gum line. Laser therapy can help to remove bacteria and tartar deposits, and also stimulates new tissue growth. In some cases, advanced surgical procedures may be necessary to treat gum disease. These procedures can help to restore the attachment between the gum and tooth, and may also involve regenerating lost bone tissue. Periodontal treatment can be highly effective in treating and reversing gum disease, but it is important to seek treatment early to avoid more serious problems.
