In years gone past wholesale extractions were carried out when patients were diagnosed with “pyoria” or gum disease, this is no longer the case, most gum disease can now be treated.
Good dental hygiene is essential for good overall health. Recent studies have shown a link between poor oral health and heart disease. Our dental hygienist will carry out routine and extensive scaling and root planing to improve periodontal health, appearance, and halitosis (bad breath).This treatment can be carried out with the aid of local anaesthetic if desired. It is of the utmost importance that the gums/bone around teeth are healthy prior to routine, cosmetic and implant dental treatment.
We would recommend our patients have their periodontal condition checked twice yearly to prevent gum disease.
