about this treatment.

Following your first assessment with us, we might advise you to return for a well:o perio care treatment to treat gum disease.

Gum disease, also known as periodontal disease, is a common oral health condition that affects the gums and supporting structures of the teeth. It is caused by the build-up of plaque — a sticky film of bacteria — on the teeth and along the gumline. If not properly removed through regular brushing and flossing, plaque can harden into tartar (calculus), leading to inflammation and infection of the gums.

The early sign of gum disease is called gingivitis, which is characterised by red, swollen, and bleeding gums. If left untreated, gingivitis can progress to periodontitis, where the infection spreads deeper into the gums and can cause tooth loss.

Regular dental check-ups, thorough oral hygiene care and professional hygiene treatment, are essential in preventing and treating gum disease. Your tailored treatment plan will depend on your specific health needs. Depending on the amount of treatment you require, we may arrange two to three 60-minute appointments for you.

Before we get started on any course of treatment, we’ll walk you through a treatment plan at your first check-up appointment. We’ll always be up-front about the costs involved in any course of treatment.

Alongside our award-winning  Guided Biofilm Therapy (GBT) treatment with Airflow® and plaque removal with a combination of hand instruments, we may give you a local anaesthetic. If we manage to improve your gum disease significantly, then we’ll recommend moving you onto our hygiene maintenance treatment plan. In some cases we may need to repeat treatments or refer you to a specialist for further treatment.
