At your first appointment your gums and bone health will be assessed to ascertain if you have any form of gun disease I.e gingivitis or periodontist. This will be explained to you along with the specific type of treatment you will need depending on the level of disease.

Scaling & Polishing

This is the removal of all the hard and soft deposits on your teeth which set hard on to the teeth and can’t be removed by normal toothbrushing.

This is done with the use of an ultrasonic scaler which vibrates at a high speed and releases water to help break up and remove the deposits to leave your teeth feeling spotlessly clean.

Airflow stain removal

This is the removal of all the hard and soft deposits on your teeth
using an ultrasonic scaler. 

Then an airflow polisher will be used to remove staining I.e tea/coffee staining to leave your teeth not only feeling clean but looking clean and stain free.

The airflow system uses a high pressure water and particulate powder to blasts away staining.

Advancing periodontist

This is for patients who have advancing/progressing
periodontist disease. Which means there is a degree of damage to the underlying bone which hold the teeth in place. 

This damage can involve just a few teeth at the back of your mouth or be more wide spread. 

This treatment involves full assessment including measurements and records to details the depth of gum and bone damage occluding then the use of an ultrasonic scaler to go under the gum and removal all deposits and bacteria. Followed by the use of an antibacterial gel placed under the gum.

Full periodontal treatment

This is for patients who have wide spread gum disease
involving the majoring of the teeth and gums. Patients at this stage will have bleeding and painful gums and even movement/wobbly teeth. Therefore a total deep scaling and root surface instrumentation is needed to remove all plaque, calculus and debris from under the gum and above the gum, which will initiate a healing response. This may involve anesthesia via injection to anesthetize the gums for your comfort.

Following the removal of all plaque and calculus an antibacterial wash & Gel will be used to removal the bacterial causing periodontal disease.

This type of treatment will usually need to be repeated on a 3 monthly basis. At each appointment measurements will be taken to record and assess the progression or healing response from the gums.

You are at risk of loosing your teeth if you do not treat any type of bone damage caused by periodontal disease.

Gingivitis

Is a disease that effects the gums. A typical gingivitis appearance will present at the margin of where the gum and tooth meet and to the little triangle of gum between the teeth.

There will be a feeling of heavy deposits of hard build up on the teeth with red and swollen appearance to the gums which can sometimes be accompanied by pain.  The gum can feel sore to brush.

If you are experienced any of the symptoms of gingivitis please book a consultation appointment
with our hygienist.

Periodontist

Is a disease that effects the gum and the underlying bone that hold the teeth in place.

Periodontist starts with all the signs of gingivitis but if left untreated it will lead to the damage of not only the gums but the bone under the gum.
All the same signs of gingivitis apply plus the feeling of heavy deposits of hard build up on the teeth, spontaneous bleeding from the gums at night or waking up with blood on the pillow, pain when brushing your teeth or even when eating, , movement/wobbly teeth or even teeth falling out.

If you are experienced any of the symptoms of periodontist please book a consultation appointment with our hygienist.
