    Almost half the population of the UK suffer from gum disease. If you have bleeding when you brush, swollen gums which are red and sore or teeth which feel loose in your mouth, this could be a sign of gum disease.

    Periodontics aims to tackle these issues before they become more serious. Receiving treatment from a periodontic specialist can reverse the symptoms of gum disease, helping your teeth stay stronger and your mouth healthier.

    What are periodontics?

    Periodontics is a dental specialism concerned with the treatment and prevention of gum disease and bone loss. Periodontitis is a serious gum infection which causes damage to the soft tissue and bone around the teeth. Over time, it can cause teeth to loosen or even fall out.

    Periodontics aims to prevent things becoming so serious by improving oral hygiene. This is done through a combination of support for better oral health practices at home as well as professional deep cleaning by your periodontal specialist.

    What happens during a periodontal treatment?

    Seeing a periodontic specialist can have positive outcomes for those suffering from or at risk of gum disease. An appointment with a periodontist will be tailored to your needs, but often involves:

    • Oral hygiene support: We will highlight any areas you might be missing during regular brushing and will help you to clean your teeth more effectively. We might recommend a different toothbrush, or additional tools such as interdental brushes and floss picks.
    • Deep cleaning: We want to help you get off to a good start with oral hygiene, so will usually undertake a deep cleaning treatment in surgery. This will involve numbing your mouth to avoid discomfort and then cleaning the areas you can’t get to with your toothbrush.
    • Surgery: If you have been diagnosed with advanced periodontitis (gum disease) then you may require surgery. This could involve opening your gums slightly to allow deeper cleaning or providing ways to support your teeth and gums if they have receded a lot.

    Your periodontist will talk to you about the treatment they plan to carry out and will always make sure you are comfortable and confident in what’s being done.
