Teeth with and without periodontal issues

Periodontal Care At Pangbourne

Origin & Outcome

Periodontitis is caused by bacteria deposits on your teeth, often known as plaque, tartar, or biofilm. The inflamation and tissue damage they bring can be made worse by the reaction of your immune system, which enhances unwanted symptoms.

The first signs could be swollen, inflamed, or bleeding gums, although periodental disease is not always evident. You may not initially be aware of periodontitis until a dentist points this out.

Beyond the early stages, you will see physical symptoms. Receding gums are a common sign, bone degeneration and loss can occur at the same time, even if this is not visible.

Loosening, perhaps loss of your teeth can follow, periodontitis may also bring wider general health issues. Professional dental cleaning and good hygiene will help with prevention, although they can not cure damage which is already in place.

Periodontal Treatment

You may see periodontitis described as a disease without a cure, in a sense true but modern science and specialist skills help significantly. Periodontists are often described as the plastic surgeons of dentistry and offer a range of valuable treatment:

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

All periodontal treatment in Pangbourne is provided by Dr Goncalo Sanches, who is also responsible for our dental implants. An answer to tooth loss, although Dr Sanches always wishes to focus on preventing loss, restoring health.
