Our Periodontal Treatment Philosophy

By August 6, 2020Perion Implant Blog

Treatment of periodontal (gum) disease has been a matter of intense research over many years. Clinical studies have allowed us to understand the complex interplay between our mouth and the environment. Chronic periodontitis, the most common form of ‘gum disease’ represents a major health problem in the UK. Surveys show that more than 50% of the population currently experience some degree of damage to the bone or the gums that support the teeth. Although many patients do not directly link their symptoms with gum disease, other patients report concerns with bleeding gums, bad breath, wobbly or loose teeth causing discomfort when eating, all of which are associated with periodontitis.
