In-house peridontal treatment at Elstead Dental Surgery

Periodontitis is an advanced stage of gum disease where bacterial plaque damages the soft tissue and destroys the bone that supports your teeth making the tooth loose. If left untreated, the tooth may eventually fall out or need to be removed. Early diagnosis and treatment is important, otherwise teeth may loosen early in life.

The cornerstone of successful periodontal treatment starts with establishing excellent oral hygiene. Periodontitis is a chronic inflammatory disease and a lifelong regimen of excellent hygiene and professional maintenance care with a dentist/ hygienist or periodontist is required to maintain affected teeth.

The goals of periodontal treatment are to remove calculus and soft plaque from deep pockets around teeth, reduce the pockets, smooth root surfaces and arrange gum tissue into a shape that will be easier to keep clean.

Dr Bhavin Pitamber is an expert in this field and by using latest techniques he is very successful in stabilising the condition and preventing further bone loss.

The many benefits of periodontal treatment include fresh breath, the ability to chew your food more easily, better general health, healthy gums that are free from infection and most importantly, helping you achieve your goal of keeping your natural teeth for a lifetime!
