Periodontal treatment involves a much deeper clean in and below the gum line. This is required as a regular treatment to keep gum disease from causing further damage.

What does periodontal treatment involve?

Periodontal treatment takes at least three appointments. During the first appointment, we take x-rays and scans to assess the condition of your mouth and record the damage caused by the disease. This is an important step as long term monitoring of your periodontal condition will show whether the disease progresses or is under control. 

The treatment itself usually consists of 2 separate sessions - one for the upper arch and one for the lower arch. These appointments need to be close together to prevent re-infection.

This very deep cleaning is done under local anaesthetic, using special tools to remove the build up of tartar from the roots, as well as disinfecting the surrounding tissues.

As periodontitis is a life-long condition, you will be expected to have follow-up treatments to keep the condition from causing any noticeable damage. A frequent professional scale and polish, as well as strict oral hygiene at home will help stabilise the condition and help you keep your teeth!

Dr Lionel Friedmann and his Nurse were kind, polite, attentive and very professional all at the same time. I felt very safe and well-looked after. I had a wonderful appointment and feel so happy with my smile. I am delighted and so is my sister and friend who picked me up from the clinic.
