Why ARE periodontics important?
If you have oral inflammation, your gums hurt and bleed, and you have tooth pain… you had better see a periodontist.
Periodontal disease can range from bleeding gums, to the loss of the bone that supports the teeth. At an advanced stage, it can even cause the teeth to fall out.
Prevention is better than cure!

What are the main periodontal diseases?
- Gingivitis: This is inflammation of the gums, with redness and possible bleeding. Gum retraction is also a symptom of gingivitis, and can be controlled with thorough dental hygiene, in addition to periodic cleaning in the dental clinic.
- Periodontitis: If gingivitis is not properly managed, it can trigger periodontitis, which is a deep inflammation of the gums and can lead to the teeth falling out.
How is gum disease treated?
If you have gum disease, you should be treated by a professional. Have professional cleaning at the practice to eliminate gum inflammation and infection. Scaling and root planning is usually sufficient to manage periodontal disease, since plaque and bacteria can be removed from the surface of the teeth and from under the gums.
However, if you have advanced periodontitis, periodontal surgery may be required to completely eliminate the inflammation and rebuild the lost periodontal tissue. Surgery can also correct cases of gingival smile and gum retraction.
Halitosis is commonly known as bad breath and is an unpleasant smell coming from a person’s mouth. Halitosis may be non-pathological, i.e. temporary bad breath, or pathological, with an intraoral or extraoral origin.
Periodontal disease is the main cause of pathological halitosis. In our dental clinic in London, we can perform an analysis to identify the origin of bad breath and suggest corresponding treatment.
