Treatment for Gum Health - Periodontal/ Hygiene Treatment
It is very important to maintain healthy gums. Gum Disease is very common and can cause bleeding gums and bad breath. Gum Disease tends to get worse over time and it is the most common cause of tooth loss. Also Gum Disease has now been linked to more serious conditions like Heart Disease.
We routinely screen patients at ‘check up’ appointments for signs of Gum Disease. If you have any issues we will inform you and discuss treatment options. We have information leaflets in the practice to help patients understand Gum Disease and its treatment.
Normally treatment to stabilise your gum health will be performed by a hygienist.
Patients with moderate to severe gum problems can benefit from seeing the hygienist on a private basis. This allows extended appointment times and for appointment frequency to be tailored to your individual needs for enhanced delivery of care.
Your dentist or hygienist will advise you if he/she thinks you would benefit from Private Hygiene Treatment.
Paying for Private Hygiene Treatment.
Many patients who see the hygienist for private care pay each time they attend. The fee paid is based on the length of the appointment as itemised on the Private Fees tab.
We do also offer a payment plan through Denplan, the UK’s largest provider of Dental Care Plans. This allows patients to spread the cost of Private Hygiene Treatment using monthly Direct Debits. Our staff are happy to provide more information on this if you are interested.
