When writing about Dr. Dev Patel only superlatives will do. As one who has, unfortunately, had to have a lot of dental treatment - much of it excellent - for many years, I can say that what he has provided since I began seeing him about eighteen months ago for implants has been in a class of its own. If perfection in dentistry exists, then that is what his work is. His expertise and skills are immensely impressive; and he is very approachable. Dental Rooms itself is a welcoming practice, efficiently organised and run.

Periodontology (periodontics) is an area of dentistry specialising in the supporting structures of the teeth and the diseases that affect them. Examples of diseases a Periodontist would treat include Gum Disease and Gingivitis.

Periodontal treatment includes:

  • Treatment of Gingivitis (inflamed or bleeding gums)
  • Treatment of periodontal disease (disease affecting gum tissue and underlying bone)
  • Gum disease treatment around implants – Peri-implantitis
  • Correction of uneven gum line (crown lengthening)
  • Cosmetic gum graft to correct gum shrinkage
  • Treatment of bad breath (halitosis)
  • Dental Implant Treatment
What are the signs of gum disease?

The signs and symptoms are variable but may include the following:

  • Bleeding on tooth brushing.
  • Red, swollen and possible tender gums
  • Persistent bad breath
  • Gums that have pulled away from the teeth (pocketing)
  • Receding gums (getting long in the teeth)
  • Loose teeth or teeth that have changed position
  • Pus or discharge around the gums
  • A change in the way the teeth bite together.

The best dentist I have ever come across. Being a phobic prevents me from going to a dentist unless in real pain. First visit today and it was marvellous. Dev is a real find and I will be going back for more treatment ....instead of running away which is what I normally do. Thank you.
