How we work
Periodontal disease is a chronic disease and it could lead to losing teeth and needing dental implants. One of our dentists will give you a comprehensive consultation with a full assessment of your oral health, including your teeth and gums. We invest in the latest technologies to take 3D scans of your gums to be able to measure any signs of recession.
Your dentist will look for areas of inflammation and bleeding. If necessary, x-rays will be taken. You will be able to ask any questions you have. Your dentist will then devise a tailored treatment plan to address any problems and help restore a happy and healthy mouth.
Our focus is prevention, diagnosis and monitoring to support you to optimise your gum and teeth health.Get in touch

Can I see an dental implantologist?
If you have experienced tooth loss due to gum disease, you may wish to consider dental implants. Our in-house experts will be able to advise you on the best course of action.
If you have dental implants, then you need to be mindful of peri implant disease, which is the main reason for losing dental implants. A treatment solution could include regeneration of the bone and gum tissue which is holding the dental implant in place. Untreated, this can lead to losing dental implants. Regular appointments with our hygienist, Eamon, will support the longevity of your dental implants.
