Gum Disease

Periodontal disease is a chronic gum condition that affects tooth-supporting structures (the bone, periodontal ligament, gums). Gum disease is initiated by the accumulation of plaque and calculus building up around the teeth and in the supporting structures.

Classically gingivitis is inflammation of the gums surrounding the teeth, without affecting the supporting bone and is characterised by inflammation (redness) of the gums and bleeding, normally when you brush your teeth.

Early diagnosis and treatment can prevent the disease progressing to the more serious periodontal disease called periodontitis. If not treated this can lead to irreversible bone loss around the teeth and eventual tooth loss.

Gum disease is a common cause of tooth loss among adults.

Risk Factors of Periodontal Disease

The primary risk factor for periodontal disease is the build-up of plaque. However, there are other factors which can influence the condition of your gums. These include:

  • Poor Oral Hygiene
  • Genetics
  • Stress
  • Smoking
  • Poor Nutrition
  • Medications
  • Tooth Grinding
  • Obesity
The bacteria associated with gum disease has been implicated in other medical conditions such as heart disease, dementia, diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis and premature births. It is therefore important to maintain good oral hygiene and gum health to avoid other more serious medical conditions.


Root canal treatment (Endodontics) is a dental procedure used to treat infection at the centre of a tooth. Infection may get to the centre of the tooth due to :

  • Severe tooth decay
  • Repeated dental treatment on the tooth
  • A cracked tooth
  • Cracked or loose fillings
  • A broken crown
  • Cracked or loose fillings
  • Trauma
Some teeth have complex root anatomy and treating the infected tooth may be difficult. We therefore have dentists with special interest in endodontics, who have the masters training and skill to negotiate this complex root anatomy to achieve great results.

Dental Implants

We would all like to keep our healthy teeth for as long as possible into our old age. However, sometimes some teeth need to be extracted as they can no longer be restored in any way.

Dental implants provide a great alternative to dentures or dental bridges to replace missing teeth.

Dental Implants have now been used for many years successfully to replace missing teeth in both young and old people.


  • Restore single missing teeth or Full dental arches
  • Similar structure and function to natural teeth
  • Preserve the natural bone which resorbs after a tooth has been extracted
  • Significant improvement in oral health
  • Superior alternative to dentures
  • Do not damage teeth adjacent to gaps as is required with dental bridges
  • Better tolerated than the alternative
  • Cost effective
Our In-House implant surgeons have years of experience providing exceptional care to patients requiring dental implants.

We have the privilege of great specialists and dentist with special interests, providing advanced restorative care at our practice.
