The periodontist offers a range of treatment depending on the needs of the patient. Our periodontal treatments are very often geared to pragmatic management of deteriorating conditions, to allow the referring practitioner to progress towards successful reconstruction of the dental arch. However, we are also keen to provide treatment for recession defects including periodontal plastic surgery and grafting around teeth, pontics, or implant sites.
Once specialist treatment is completed, the patient will return to your practice to continue with an ongoing maintenance programme. A yearly review with the periodontist may be necessary, in order monitor any possible unpredictable sites. Of course the practice will be happy to offer our hygienist service.
