Periodontal

Gum disease (periodontal disease) is the leading cause of tooth loss in adults. Its treatment and control is the single most important factor underpinning all aspects of dentistry. Our dentists will screen for periodontal disease and assess your gums when you attend for a dental check-up.

Gum disease is caused by excessive bacterial accumulation in the mouth, and along the gum margins, in a biological medium better known as plaque. Gum disease can be incredibly painful, and if allowed to progress, can result in destruction of the underlying bone, recession of the gums, abscesses, mobility, and the premature loss of teeth.

At The Walk-in Dental Centre our dentist will work closely with the patient, to try to decelerate and stabilise the effects of gum disease. Treatment involves the thorough removal of plaque and hard deposits, and the use of topical antimicrobials in specific cases. We support patients in developing a regular maintenance programme, both at home, and in conjunction with our dentist.
