Specialist therapy for gums that need care and attention

Your gums are the unsung heroes of your smile. They keep your teeth strong and healthy, providing them with crucial support and protection. When gum health starts to fail, teeth also suffer as a result so protecting your smile from gum disease is crucial. Practising regular oral hygiene as well as regular trips to the hygienist will keep gum disease at bay. Sometimes, however, specialist care is needed to help get gums back to full health.

Periodontics Periodontics

What is periodontics?

Periodontics is the field of dentistry concerned with gum health and treating gum disease. It also covers gum surgery, such as gum grafting and contouring. Periodontists are also able to maintain implants, preventing them from failing due to gum disease.

Gum disease has two stages. The first stage, gingivitis, is preventable and treatable. Hygiene appointments on top of your routine brushing and cleaning protect your smile from this stage of gum disease. The other stage, periodontitis, occurs if gum disease is left untreated. This condition isn’t as treatable as gingivitis.

How can we treat gum disease?

Periodontal therapy involves removing the cause of the gum disease and helping the healthy gum to heal. Using specialist tools, we can scale away plaque and tartar from below the gum line. We have a dental laser that promises the best results, encouraging a much faster recovery rate and sterilising the tooth. We can remove any infected tissue, leaving only healthy gum tissue behind.

Periodontal treatments are more involved than hygiene appointments and can involve surgery. We can offer sedation to help more nervous patients to feel at ease during their appointments.

Visited Glow Dental for the first time today, and it's been some time since I had a dental check up. Stephen was an excellent dentist, really put me at ease, and I valued that he could not only talk me through - but also show me - the condition of my teeth and gums. He was really helpful with all my questions too.- Felicity B
