Gum health plays a vital role in maintaining overall oral health. At Surrey Dental Specialist, our team of periodontal specialists focuses on preventing, diagnosing, and treating gum diseases to help our patients achieve healthy smiles.

Periodontics is a branch of dentistry that specializes in the prevention and treatment of gum diseases, such as gingivitis and periodontitis. These conditions, if left untreated, can lead to gum recession, tooth loss, and even systemic health problems.

One of the key aspects of periodontics is the thorough cleaning of the teeth and gums, known as scaling and subgingival debridement (deep cleaning under the gums). This deep cleaning procedure removes plaque and tartar buildup from below the gumline, where regular brushing and flossing cannot reach.

In addition to professional cleaning, our periodontal specialists may recommend other treatments based on your specific needs. These can include gum grafting to cover exposed tooth roots, periodontal pocket reduction surgery to reduce pocket depths around the teeth, or dental implant placement to replace missing teeth affected by gum disease.

Regular visits to our periodontal specialists at Surrey Dental Specialist are essential, especially if you have a family history of gum disease or notice any signs of gum problems, such as bleeding, redness, or persistent bad breath. Our team will assess your gum health, create a personalized treatment plan, and provide you with the necessary tools and guidance to maintain healthy gums for life.
