Periodontal treatment: maintaining the condition of your teeth

Healthy gums are very important for ensuring healthy teeth.

Inflammation of the gums or the tissue that holds the teeth in place (periodontitis) can damage your ability to bite and even lead to tooth loss. To make sure this doesn't happen, we start treatment promptly to stop the process and maintain your long-term dental health.

 

Our hygienist Mandy and Steph

 

give advice and instruction on how to care for your mouths and prevent gum disease, dental decay and often bad breath.  They will also clean and scale your teeth, where appropriate, removing the hard build up (calculus) and stain.
