Periodontal treatment at Angle House

Did you know that the enamel on our teeth is one of the hardest parts of our entire body? To keep our teeth in position, there is a lot of muscle and tissue in our gums, probably something you’ve never thought of.

But at Angle House Specialist Dentistry, we have. This is because we know just how important it is to not only keep your teeth healthy but the surrounding tissues and gums healthy too. If you don’t, this could lead to periodontal disease and the need for specialist periodontal treatment.

What is periodontal disease?

Periodontal disease occurs when the bone and muscle supporting your teeth gets infected with bacteria and starts to deteriorate. If this happens, it can lead to the teeth becoming loose and increases your chances of losing that tooth (or teeth) completely.

The bacteria that causes periodontal disease comes from plaque build up on your teeth, which is why it’s important to maintain a regular oral hygiene routine, as instructed by your family dentist and your specialist orthodontist.

If you notice that your gums are bleeding when you brush your teeth, or that they’re sore and swollen, this could be a sign of periodontal disease developing.

How does periodontal treatment work?

At Angle House, our specialist periodontist Dr Anjali Mehta, offers the following treatment for periodontal disease:

At Angle House Orthodontics, our specialist periodontist Dr Anjali Mehta, offers the following treatment for periodontal disease:

Non-surgical periodontal therapy: Early onset periodontal disease can be treated with non-surgical therapy. Dr Anjali will provide oral hygiene instructions and deep cleaning above and below the gums with local anaesthetic. This aims to reduce bacteria levels below the gums and reduce the extent in which the disease can progress.

Surgical periodontal therapy: If periodontal disease is diagnosed and requires surgery, Dr Anjali can provide pocket reduction and regenerative surgery. These procedures are indicated for sites with residual disease following non-surgical therapy. They aim to reduce deep gum pockets and, where indicated, regenerate lost tissue support.

Periodontal plastic surgery: If the gum has receded in areas where periodontal disease has affected the health of the teeth and gums, periodontal plastic surgery procedures aim to provide root coverage in those specific areas.

Crown lengthening procedures: When teeth break or decay spreads below the gum line, crown lengthening procedures aim to increase the height of the remaining tooth structure, allowing teeth to be restored.
