Gum Disease detection and treatment
We screen for periodontal gum disease, providing focused preventive advice to prevent and treat gum disease with all examinations. We also provide gum disease screening and preventive advice with all our hygiene and periodontal gum treatments
Periodontal and hygiene treatments provide removal (debridement) of bacteria from infected gum pockets, scaling tartar(calculus) and plaque from infected gum disease sites. As part of any gum disease treatment and maintenance of gum health we provide specific oral hygiene advice to ensure successful outcomes after periodontal gum/hygiene treatments.

There is increasing research and evidence which links the bacteria and inflammation associated with periodontal gum disease with systemic disease such as strokes, heart attacks, diabetes and dementia.
