Gum Disease and Periodontitis

Gum Disease and Periodontitis

As we are a specialist periodontal practice, we believe that prevention is better than cure. We know that long-term dental management feels a whole lot better than ongoing treatment.

However, most of our patients will attend with some degree of gum disease. This is why we are passionate about educating you on all aspects of dental health, especially gum disease and how to spot it, treat it, and ensure it is well controlled once it has been treated.

What is gum disease?

Gum disease is an inflammation of the gum line that can also affect the bone and supporting structures that surrounds your teeth if left untreated. There are two stages of the disease: gingivitis and periodontitis.
