    Periodontal disease, also known as gum disease, is a chronic bacterial infection that affects the gums and the supporting structures of the teeth. It is one of the most common dental problems and can range from mild inflammation of the gums (gingivitis) to severe damage to the bone and tissues that support the teeth (periodontitis).

    Our Services and Treatments

    Consultation

    At your initial visit, we focus on understanding your concerns and undertake a detailed medical and dental history to learn of your health issues.

    Diagnosis

    Arriving at a diagnosis involves assessment of your oral health, including medical and dental history.

    Dental implants

    Dental implants are considered the most optimal and sustainable way of replacing missing teeth.

    Surgical periodontal therapy

    Surgical periodontal therapy can remove plaque and tartar in inaccessible areas, eliminate hard-to-maintain periodontal pockets and improve function and appearance.

    Regenerative Procedures

    Regenerative procedures can reverse some of the damage caused by periodontal disease.

    Osseous surgery

    Osseous surgery is a procedure that restores your gums to a healthier, more natural state.

    Scaling and root debridement

    Scaling and root debridement is the removal of tartar and plaque from the surface of the tooth crown and root that can prevent gum disease.

    Treatment of peri-implantitis

    Treatment of peri-implantitis can involve reinforcing oral hygiene instructions, non-surgical treatment (scaling) and surgical therapy.

    Frenectomy

    Frenectomy is a procedure that surgically removes an abnormal frenum, the muscle attachment which extends from the inner lip to the gum margins.

    Crown Lengthening

    Crown lengthening alters the gum margin of the tooth to optimise the width between gum margins and margins of fillings and crowns – critical in ensuring long term gum health and aesthetics.

    Gum Grafting

    Gum grafting is performed to correct the effects of gum recession where the gums recede from the teeth. It is a quick and relatively simple surgery.

    Post-operative Care

    Post-operative care after periodontal surgery is crucial to ensure proper healing and optimal results.
