Treatment of gum disease

If you have gum disease, you may need to have periodontal assessment done. This means measurements of the attachment of the gum around the tooth. This would then be followed by extensive deep cleaning under the gums, possibly antibiotic therapy, and then a follow up pocket charting gum assessment to see if improvements have been made.

In cases of gum disease you may be required to see a hygienist every 3 months.

How it works.

A healthy tooth. Plaque builds up … gum and bone may begin to recede. Sometimes the gum recedes with the bone and sometimes it doesn’t.
Either way the tooth may become mobile.

Measuring the depth of periodontal pockets is a common technique … which will help establish the patients condition … and measure the change in that condition.
A special probe is used and measurements recorded in order.

In more severe cases where teeth have been lost, there are options for replacing missing teeth. Where bone has been lost it is not always possible to place implants.

Here at love-Teeth we are lucky to have Dr Leo Klein who offers implants and many other clever techniques not often seen in the UK as alternatives to implants, for those who definitely don’t want dentures!
