The periodontal or gum treatment can vary according to the severity of the periodontal disease. We place great emphasis on daily home care and for this very reason, part of the periodontal treatment we provide is based on oral hygiene education.
Since periodontitis is caused mainly by the bacterial plaque, there is a need to remove all the plaque and tartar deposit as part of the disinfection protocol. Scaling and deep cleaning (sub gingival debridement) under local anaesthesia is one of the first steps of the treatment we can carry out. The response to the treatment greatly depends on patient’s compliance and home care plaque control.
In some cases a surgical approach to gum disease is necessary and for this reason we might decide to refer our patients to some of the finest periodontal specialist in London.
