We support patients with varying periodontal needs, working to restore their oral health so they can enjoy the benefits that come with having healthy teeth and soft tissues.

What is periodontics?

Periodontics is the name for dentistry that focuses on your:

  • Gum health.
  • Jawbone.
  • Periodontal ligaments are the joints connecting each tooth to its socket.
  • The cementum – connecting the tooth to the jaw.

It is a focused area of dentistry, often requiring a multifaceted approach to nurse your gums back to health so they can provide a good home for your teeth.

Nearly half of adults in the UK suffer from some degree of periodontal disease, so it is a very important service that we provide our patients.

What types of procedures are classed as periodontal treatment?

There is a selection of treatments we can use to restabilise your oral health if you are suffering from gum disease. Once we have diagnosed the severity of your condition, we can react with a tailored regimen to restore health to your mouth. Such treatments include:

  • Gum grafting to address gum recession.
  • Surgical treatment to reach plaque and tartar under the gum line.
