Periodontics & Gum Disease

  • Healthier gums and teeth
  • Sustained oral health
  • Prevention of infection spreading

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.

Periodontic disease can prove challenging to resolve for non-specialist dentists and hygienists, particularly in its advanced state. We have registered specialists in the field of periodontics who are able to deal with the most complex cases. Wherever possible, they will also work with our hygienists to give our patients maximum flexibility in their treatment plans.

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.

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.
