If left untreated, gum disease can result in tooth loss. Our clinicians aim to make sure it doesn't get that far by offering skilled gum treatments from our dental surgery in Southampton.
Gum disease is caused by a serious infection that can spread around the root of the teeth causing bone reduction and, if left untreated, tooth loss. A skilled periodontist will evaluate your condition and depending on its severity, recommend either non-surgical periodontal treatment or gum surgery.

If you are diagnosed with gum disease your periodontist may recommend non-surgical periodontal treatment. For advanced cases, gum surgery may be required.
The biggest factor in the treatment options available to each person depends on how quickly gum disease is detected and how far advanced it is.
