Gum Treatments

Teeth can sometimes lose bone and gum support as a result of gum disease. This can lead to progressive loosening of the tooth and eventual loss of the tooth if the gum disease is not treated.

We take gum disease very seriously and every patient undergoing a full examination is provided with a gum assessment to determine if any gum disease exists.

If active gum disease exists, we usually recommend sessions of deep cleaning (Advanced gum treatment) where all the bacteria is removed from the tooth and root surface. This procedure is sometimes carried out under local anaesthetic if necessary.

We also would assess your daily cleaning methods and recommend any changes that would be necessary in order to make your daily cleaning more effective in removing plaque.

Sometimes other factors such as smoking or diabetes may also be contributing to the worsening gum condition and we would inform you if you need to make any changes to improve your gum condition.

Patient Testimonials

Erika has been wonderful with my young daughter who accidentally chipped a piece off her front adult tooth. Erika was patient and caring, she took the extra time to explain the procedure and allowed for any questions and took it at a pace that suited my daughter.....the result is amazing, we are all pleased and most of all my daughter is now excited about going to the dentist!

I saw an advert for a free smile evaluation and having been so unhappy with my teeth for years, decided to go and have it done (not really thinking I would actually go through with any treatment) but as soon as I met Erika and she showed me what she could do with my smile I was instantly on board! You need to be committed to the regular check ups and make sure you wear the aligners but once you get going it becomes a habit and my treatment time flew by. All the staff are friendly and helpful and Erika was always on hand for any advice I needed.The results are amazing and so worth the money...I wish I'd had it done years ago!

Erika as always fantastic. I had a very nervous son who could be difficult to reason with. This has changed totally. My son will now happily go and see Erika and tell her the problem. A small filling today and wow Erika was fab, her nurse was great and my son has totally changed and sat on the chair and let her do all the treatment with no worries. Big thumbs up from us!! Thank you 😁😁

Went in for my normal 6 month check up today,Erica thoroughly cleaned and checked as usual and to my joy and surprise she asked if I would like to have my chip filled in on my front tooth. Without hesitating off she went. Thank you so much Erica, I honestly can't thank you enough. My wedding photos will look great now.....well at least my teeth will be!
