Periodontitis is a chronic disease which is shown to be the sixth most common human disease. It can contribute to systemic conditions such as diabetes or heart disease and it can negatively influence their course. It has also been associated to adverse pregnancy outcomes and linked to more than fifty diseases and conditions including chronic kidney disease and rheumatoid arthritis.
Sometimes routine hygiene appointments are not sufficient to achieve gum health and a more specialised treatment is required. Specialist periodontal treatment primarily focuses on achieving gum health and ensuring that it can be maintained long-term.
Most periodontitis cases can be resolved with non-surgical periodontal therapy. More severe cases of periodontitis or other gum disorders might require surgical management (such as pocket reduction or regenerative procedures, gum recession coverage, bone grafting to regenerate lost bone and / or implant placement). Our Specialist Periodontist uses the latest minimally invasive surgical techniques and high-magnification equipment to reduce postoperative discomfort.
