We treat periodontal disease with the most effective, modern and painless methods that have been scientifically proven. The range of procedures available is briefly summarised below:

  • Consultation for periodontal and/or implant therapy: We provide each patient with a detailed examination followed by a written report, treatment plan and cost estimate. This includes detailed reports to the referring colleague.
  • Non-surgical and surgical periodontal therapy: We treat periodontal disease with the most effective, modern and painless methods that have been scientifically proven. Read more about the Periodontal Endoscope
  • Periodontal regeneration: Replaces lost or damaged tooth-supporting tissues.
  • Periodontal plastic surgery: Periodontal procedures aimed at stopping further dental problems associated with gum recession and/or to improving the esthetics of your gum line.
  • Surgical crown lengthening: Periodontal procedures that lay the groundwork for restorative and cosmetic dentistry and/or to improve the health and esthetics of your smile.
  • Repair of gingival recessions: Exposed tooth roots are the result of gum recession. Soft tissue grafts can be used to cover roots or develop gum tissue which is lost due to excessive gingival recession.
  • Frenectomy: A procedure often needed to remove a restraining fold of mucous membrane connecting the inside of the lip to the gum. This procedure is often necessary to facilitate the closure of a gap between front teeth.
  • Root resection and/or hemi-section: An outdated procedure still performed but nowadays often replaced by the use of dental implants.
  • Exposure of impacted canine teeth: When eye-teeth have not erupted they can often be helped to erupt using specialised orthodontic techniques. Periodontists are exceptionally good at exposing these teeth surgically and placing attachments on them that are then used by orthodontists to bring the teeth into their natural positions.
  • Dental Implants: We are specially trained and experienced in the provision of dental implants. We pride ourselves on a very high success rate and the ability to deal with a great variety of cases.
  • Bone grafting associated with implants: Successful implant therapy often necessitates the need for bone grafting techniques. Periodontists are specially trained in these procedures as they deal with regeneration of lost or damaged tooth-supporting tissues on a daily basis.
  • Repair of alveolar ridge defects: A key to implant success is the amount and quality of the bone where the implant is to be placed. These procedures can involve bone or gum rebuilding and are used to make the utilisation of dental implants possible in cases where it would otherwise have been impossible.
