Detecting gum disease early to avoid tooth loss
Periodontal disease, or gum disease, is one of the most wide-spread diseases across the world and is generally considered to be the leading cause of tooth loss. It is usually pain-free and can be easily missed particularly in the early stages, meaning that many people will have gum disease without even being aware of it.
At one80 Dental, Dr Fergus Machin leads our Periodontal service. Our experienced Periodontal Team provides advanced treatments and prevention of diseases and disorders (infection and inflammation) of the gums and other structures around the teeth.
