Gum Disease Management Programme
Your gums and the bone underneath them are what support your teeth and are the foundation for a healthy mouth.
Each patient is assessed and a programme determined to suit his or her individual requirements. We will scale and polish your teeth, review your home care, which is an extremely important part of controlling gum disease, and advise you on the best products and techniques to help achieve our goals. Our aim is prevention and protection through regular hygiene appointments. For patients with more advanced gum disease more extensive deep cleaning is done over a number of appointments, under local anaesthetic as required to ensure that this is comfortable for you.
Scientists are now discovering that gum disease is linked as a causative factor in heart disease and strokes so it is even more important to prevent or cure this problem.
