Periodontics are effectual treatments carried out to recover from gum disease and maintain good gum health.

What is Periodontal Disease?

They are many types of periodontal disease – sometimes called gum disease. However, the general underlying definition is infection and inflammation of the soft tissues surrounding the teeth. This inflammation and the resulting damage is caused by the bacteria in plaque and can have hereditary factors. If left untreated, this can lead to loss of the supporting bone structure and eventual tooth loss.

What treatments are available for periodontal disease?

After an initial consultation, we will be able to provide you with a bespoke treatment plan.

There are numerous different gum disease treatment options available. Initially, your hygienist, therapist, dentist, or periodontist will take measurements around each tooth to ascertain the disease’s progression and stage. Your teeth are thoroughly cleaned on all surfaces – including root surfaces if required – and then reviewed at regular intervals with the overarching aim of halting the progression of tissue damage.

Most treatments are based upon the removal of debris and good oral hygiene routines at home.

Is the periodontal treatment uncomfortable??

All Serene treatments are done with your wellbeing at the forefront of our minds, and our procedures are carried out with empathy. Our friendly team will talk you through the process and treatment options as part of your personalised treatment plan. If you feel anxious about treatment, please do let us know, as you may benefit from The Enjoyable Dentistry Technique™, which will combine a mild sedative with calming visualisations to aid a more pleasant dental experience.
