Gum Disease Treatment Basingstoke
This should be screened for at every check up as if allowed to progress can lead to tooth loss. Individuals who are prone to it can develop ‘pockets’ between their teeth and gums which harbour bacteria. As the pockets deepen bone is lost and the teeth become mobile.
We treat most cases in the practice and have various techniques all based on keeping the teeth very clean. We aim to get affected patients in a position to maintain their own teeth whilst minimising tooth loss. Georgina in particular has a special interest in this area and gets high success rates.
