Teeth with and without periodontal issues

Periodontal Treatment At Berinsfield

Origin & Outcome

Bacteria builds up on all our teeth, the cause of deposits called plaque, or tartar. Apart from affecting the surface of your teeth, this can bring periodontitis, a disease of the tissues supporting our teeth.

Our immune systems can react unhelpfully to periodontal disease, enhancing, rather than lessening symptoms. Early signs could be inflamed, or bleeding gums, although periodontal issues may be hard to see, except during a dental examination.

In the later stages, you are likely to notice symptoms. Receding gums are a common sign but related bone degeneration and reduction may still not be apparent to the naked eye.

Loose, or lost teeth can follow, along with wider general health issues. Regular professional inspection, dental cleaning and good hygiene will help with prevention. A sound move, treatment is available but there is not always a simple solution.

Periodontal Treatment

Periodontitis has been described as a disease without cure, an epithet the latest science is setting aside. Your Berinsfield dentist will be able to treat mild periodontal disease and we have dedicated staff available to provide a wide range of periodontal treatment:

  • A Perio Consultation
  • Non Surgical Treatment
  • Tissue Regeneration
  • Replacement of Bone
  • Periodontal Surgery
  • Gingival (gum) Grafts

Alongside responsibility for dental implants in Oxfordshire, Dr Goncalo Sanches is well qualified and experienced in periodontology. The two disciplines are dental partners, restoring healthy tissue can save teeth, or prepare the way for successful implants.
