Treatment of Gum Disease

If early gum disease ( Gingivitis -which is reversible)  is not controlled then the supporting tissues around the teeth starts to be affected causing more advanced gum disease ( Periodontitis- which is irreversible) to develop.Our Dentists and Hygienist will assess any supporting tissue loss by measuring the depth of ” pockets” around each tooth and keep record of this for monitoring.Three monthly Hygiene appointments are more typical in these cases as continual monitoring is essential. Approx 15% of the UK population have severe Periodontitis and these cases are usually treated by a Specialist Periodontist
