Gum disease is treatable if diagnosed early enough
The long-term success of periodontal treatment is dependent upon attendance for maintenance appointments at regular intervals (often referred to as Supporting Periodontal Therapy or SPT). At one80 Dental the frequency of your SPT visits is directed by the detailed assessment and subsequent oral health strategy put in place by Dr Machin. You can expect that your SPT appointments will initially be set for 1 – 3 months, followed by a progress review.
To prevent re-infection and avoid repeated courses of advanced periodontal therapy it is important that you follow the oral health strategy defined by Dr Machin and follow the advice and practical guidance given to you during your SPT appointments. Here at one80 Dental, your periodontal maintenance appointments are carried out by our experienced dental hygiene services team who are committed to working with you to improve your periodontal condition, using the latest techniques and technology.
Our Periodontal Services team provide treatments and therapies using the renowned EMS Air-Flow® System including Perioflow and Airflow as standard. The Perioflow allows for minimally-invasive and effective treatment of periodontal pockets, implant surfaces and interdental spaces, and it has revolutionised the way in which we are able to treat and prevent periodontal conditions. It is particularly effective for supportive periodontal therapy (SPT) and non-surgical treatment of peri-implantitis and periodontitis.
