About 15% of the adult population are at great risk of losing teeth through gum disease. Basically, the bone that supports the teeth can dissolve away due to the presence of nasty bacteria that may be present in your mouth.

We are grateful to have Claudia Brown at our practice who can specifically help you improve the health of your gums.

We screen all of our patients at their regular examinations and anyone who has a risk of developing gum problems is offered an appointment for a gum assessment with Dr Brown. Treatment is then planned to help the gums heal and a maintenance programme is set up.

Certain medical conditions are linked with gum disease; diabetes, heart disease and immunosuppression. Smoking also exacerbates the problem with Dental Implants |
