Gum Treatment (Periodontics) Camberley

Ensuring the health & beauty of your smile with gum treatments

We are committed to ensuring the health and beauty of your smile through comprehensive gum treatments. Healthy gums are not just important for a beautiful smile, but they are also crucial for overall oral health and general well-being.

Gum disease, also known as periodontal disease, is a common condition that can range from simple gum inflammation to serious disease, resulting in major damage to the soft tissue and bone that support your teeth. In the worst cases, it can lead to tooth loss.

Gum health is integral to overall health. Research has shown links between gum disease and other health issues such as heart disease, diabetes, and pregnancy complications. Taking care of your gums is an investment in your overall health.

Understanding gum disease

Gum disease is often painless, so you may not know you have it. However, certain signs can help identify gum issues early. These include red, swollen gums, bleeding when you brush or floss, persistent bad breath, and receding gums, which can make your teeth look longer. There are two main stages of gum disease:

  • Gingivitis: The earliest stage, marked by inflammation of the gums caused by plaque build-up at the gum line. If treated early, gingivitis can be reversed, preventing progression to more severe periodontitis.
  • Periodontitis: Advanced gum disease where the gums and bone that support the teeth become seriously damaged. If periodontitis is not treated, it can lead to teeth shifting or becoming loose, which might lead to tooth loss.

Our comprehensive gum treatments

Recognising the importance of healthy gums, we offer a range of treatments tailored to address the specific needs of our patients:

  • Preventative Care: Regular check-ups and cleanings to remove plaque and tartar, along with personalised advice on home care to prevent gum disease.
  • Non-Surgical Treatments: For early-stage gum disease, treatments such as scaling and root planing are effective. This procedure cleans between the gums and teeth down to the roots.
  • Surgical Treatments: In cases of advanced periodontitis, we may recommend surgical treatments to restore supportive tissues. This could include flap surgery to remove tartar deposits in deep pockets or bone and tissue grafts to regenerate any lost tissue.
  • Laser Treatment: We also offer cutting-edge laser treatments for gum disease that can remove inflamed gum tissue and promote the regrowth of healthy tissue with minimal discomfort and recovery time.
  • Customised Treatment Plans: Recognising that every patient’s situation is unique, we develop customised treatment plans that address the specific stage and severity of gum disease, tailored to each patient’s individual needs and health goals.
