Check my Gums

Gum Disease

Untreated and undiagnosed gum disease or periodontal disease, is still the main reason why adults lose teeth. We think that’s a terrible shame as most gum disease is entirely preventable and of course treatable.

 

Dr Viren Vithlani is a Specialist Periodontist and has studied extensively in this field, he is well placed to lead our team of dentists and dental hygienists in the battle against gum disease!

 

All our team will spend time to educate you and explain what gum disease is and how to treat it and then how to maintain your gums for life. Unfortunately, gums do need maintaining, it is not a case of one treatment and then ignore them, gums need constant attention and care. They are the support to your teeth, just like the foundations of your home, without them, the building would collapse.

We focus of prevention with our young patients and spend time to educate you and your family to ensure minimal dental problems. As children grow and develop we will monitor their changes and if necessary arrange for treatment for teeth straightening (orthodontics) when the time is appropriate.

 

We do not have an NHS contract for children but do not charge children from 0-5 yrs of age for their checks. For older children we have affordable plans to allow them to receive the very best preventive care including visits to our dental hygienists and therapist.
