Periodontal referrals at CrownWood Dental
Patients can be self referred or referred to us from their own dentist but only on a private basis.
Periodontics is one of our specialities at CrownWood Dental.
Periodontics is the branch of dentistry concerned with the health of the gums and the bone surrounding the teeth. Periodontal diseases are caused by bacteria which build up around the teeth and under the gums and result in gum inflammation, bone loss and eventually loss of teeth.
Most cases of gum disease are treated by cleaning underneath the gums using local anaesthetic. This treatment is typically carried out over 2-3 visits over a period of around a month. Surgical treatment is sometimes required for the most severe cases. In certain situations it is possible to grow back the damaged periodontal tissues (regeneration).
Surgery can also be carried out to improve the appearance of an uneven gum line or gummy smile (crown-lengthening), to treat gum recession/shrinkage (mucogingival surgery) and to allow replacement of lost teeth with dental implants.
Periodontal referrals at CrownWood Dental are carried out by Dr Raman Bhardwaj.
