Periodontics is the dental specialism which deals with the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of diseases of the supporting and surrounding tissues of your teeth or their substitutes.
Looking after your gums is just as important as looking after your teeth. They act like cushions, surrounding the teeth in the jaw and helping to support them. Gums that bleed when you brush could be a sign of the gum disease gingivitis which, if left untreated, can develop into periodontitis. This affects the entire surrounding area and could result in your losing a tooth.
If you have concerns, or your regular dental check-up reveals loose teeth, inflammation in your mouth or bleeding gums, our dentists will advise on and offer whatever periodontal treatment you might need.
