Healthy gums are integral to healthy teeth and a high standard of overall oral hygiene. Sadly, a variety of poor lifestyle and diet choices, as well as factors arising from previous dental procedures, can cause gums to become inflamed, diseased, and severely deteriorated.
Thankfully, at Sloan Dental, we can identify gum specific oral health concerns, before recommending and implementing an effective gum health treatment plan accordingly.
NHS fees are the same for every dental practice in Scotland and are available upon request. A copy of our private fees is available in the practice.
Our practices are opened from the early hours until early evening so we can be sure to have an appointment available for everyone.
Here at Sloan Dental, we are proud of the 12-month guarantee that we offer with all our Private and NHS treatments. “Bishopton Practice Only.”
Patients who are members of the Sloan Dental Payment Plan are entitled to 20% off the normal cost of all private treatments.
A: Gum disease often has a certain stigma attached to diagnoses, almost as if the disease itself is indicative of poor personal oral hygiene. The good news, however, is that at Sloan Dental, we know that such stigma is entirely undeserved.
Cavities at the gum line, dental implants, and a variety of other factors can all lead to the onset of poor gum health. The most important thing as far as we are concerned, is that gum problems are identified as early as possible. This way, our dentists can identify the type of gum health treatment necessary and restore patients to better health prior to problems escalating.
A: This is why our own checks for signs of gum disease include:
Checks for changes in the way partial dentures sit in the mouth
Slight changes in tooth placement and alignment
Checks or inflammation & white spots on gums
Checks for bright red, swollen gums
Poor odor and visible signs of pus between gums and teeth
A: If your dentist does find evidence of gum disease during a routine examination or special appointment, he or she will immediately attempt to diagnose the specific form of gum disease in question. Depending on your diagnosis, our dentists will then recommend everything from basic antibiotic treatments to painless scraping of gums to remove plaque, and even deep cleaning under implants and teeth roots in order to restore full gum health.
Are you in pain and or discomfort with your gums? If so, never attempt to diagnose yourself, or wait for problems to get progressively worse. Instead, let us help. Book an appointment today and we’ll check for signs of gum disease in your mouth. If we find something, we will then advise you in regard to the best gum health treatment plan and work to get you back to full health as expeditiously as possible.
