What is periodontics?

Periodontics is the aspect of dentistry concerned with enhancing and maintaining your gum health, and managing active gum disease. If gum disease is left untreated, it can progress to periodontitis, which is a more severe stage of the condition. It can’t be reversed, but can be managed with careful treatment.

Our specialist periodontal treatment goes further than standard hygiene care, giving you the benefit of advanced techniques and equipment to help you keep your gums in good condition and your teeth healthy and strong. At Charlton Road Dental, we are pleased to offer a range of periodontal treatments, including crown lengthening, gum recession surgery, gum grafts and deep cleans. Our specialist periodontist also welcomes referrals for her services.

Frequently asked questions

What is gum disease?

Gum disease occurs when plaque and bacteria are not cleaned from your teeth effectively, leaving build-ups of these deposits which begin to attack your healthy gum tissue. As a result, your gums become irritated, inflamed and swollen, all signs of the early stage of gum disease, gingivitis. If this is left untreated, gingivitis can progress into a more severe form of gum disease, known as periodontitis. This is more destructive and can only be controlled and managed, rather than reversed. If periodontal treatment is not carried out, you could experience bone degeneration, wobbly teeth and even tooth loss.

How do I know if I need periodontal treatment?

It is important to attend regular check up appointments with your dentist, as they will be able to tell when you may benefit from hygiene care and further periodontal treatment. You may also notice your gums are painful, swollen and bleeding when you brush them, which are all signs you would benefit from some hygiene care.

Does periodontal treatment hurt?

If needed, we can use local anaesthetic to minimise any discomfort during your periodontal treatment. This completely numbs the affected area and therefore your treatment will not hurt. Once the anaesthetic wears off, your gums may feel tender, but this does not last long.

Why should I see a specialist periodontist?

A specialist periodontist has had additional in-depth training and completed further qualifications to mark them out as an expert in their field. We are proud to have a specialist periodontist at our practice, providing exceptional standards of quality treatment and the best possible results for each patient.

Is periodontitis reversible?

Periodontitis is a more severe stage of gum disease, and cannot be reversed in the same way as gingivitis, the earlier form. Once gum disease has progressed this far, it can only be managed, as permanent damage has already been done to your teeth and gums. We do all we can to help you get periodontitis under control with specialist and bespoke treatment.

How often should I have periodontal treatment?

The amount of time needed between periodontal treatments will vary depending on the care you need and your particular case. During your initial appointment, we give you an idea of the amount of appointments you will need and how long we need to leave between each one.
