Our lovely Dental Hygienists Therapists
Beautiful, clean teeth are the key to the way we look and feel about ourselves and how others see us. However hard we try and clean our teeth, as we get older keeping our smile youthful becomes harder as calculus (Limscale) builds up microscopically) under the gumline which nasty bacteria love to live around and cause our gums to recede and look aged. The great news is that we can prevent this.
Why Periodontal care at SW1 Dental
At SW1 Dental Studio we strongly believe in periodontal health being of great importance for overall wellbeing, and we are focused on prevention and non-invasive dentistry. We strive to deliver a cutting-edge laser technology in order to provide the best patient care and to avoid unnecessary surgical treatment.
We specialise in diagnosing and treating gum disease using non-invasive laser technology.
What is Gum Disease/Periodontitis?
Your gums are not supposed to bleed.
Did you know that bleeding gums are a symptom some people have in the early stages of gum disease?
Common symptoms include
• Teeth moving position
• Loose teeth
• Roots becoming exposed
• Drainage coming around the tooth
More extensive treatment is needed to achieve optimal gum health for patients who have not practised regular maintenance appointments or whose gums are painful or exhibiting signs of disease such as exposed roots and bleeding gums.
Non-Surgical Periodontal Treatment also called Root Surface Debridement requires a special technique of removing the plaque and calcified tartar deposit from the surfaces of the root and periodontal pockets using hand and mechanical instruments. This initial treatment aims to reduce the inflammation and bacterial load in the diseased periodontal pockets which in turns will allow the gums to heal and stabilise the disease.
Periodontal Laser Treatment
Laser is an impressive technology in the treatment of periodontal disease. It works by removing the Biofilm that houses the bacteria in the periodontal pockets.
Laser Bacterial Reduction and Laser Assisted Periodontal Treatment with diode laser 940nm – multiple studies confirm that laser energy is absorbed by bacteria responsible for gum disease, reducing their number and stopping the infection before they cause physical irreversible destruction of gum and bone around the teeth.
Adjunctive Periodontal Treatment
We make prevention and treatment of Gum Disease at SW1 Dental Studio a priority to improve your gum health and help you avoid tooth and bone loss. This is the biggest cause of tooth loss in adults.
We strongly recommend seeing one of our hygienists/therapists every four months. We find this really works so you get more of what’s needed.
Prevention is impossible without professional help
