What is Periodontal disease?
Periodontal disease affects the bone that support the teeth. Signs are not always obvious as the disease can progress painlessly, sometimes bleeding gums, loose, moving or gaps developing between teeth or bad breath are warning signs.
If you have concerns Rajan would be happy to offer you a periodontal consultation.
This consultation appointment involves a detailed examination of the gums, x-rays if necessary and a lifestyle investigation to highlight risk factors. Treatments are tailored to each persons needs, and usually involves a course of non-surgical therapy. This is intensive cleaning under the gums into the pockets (gaps between the teeth and gums), with local anaesthetic to provide a clean toothsurface that is infection free and allow the gums to re-heal. With more advanced disease micro-surgery is sometimes required, this is very delicate surgery where the gum is gently lifted to allow access to the root surfaces, and if appropriate regeneration products can be used to restore lost bone.
