SPECIALITY PERODONTAL (GUM) CARE

At Lyndhurst we prioritise the oral health of our patients before everything. We therefore understand that the foundations of the teeth are the most important. It is these foundations, in particular the bone which supports your teeth, which periodontal (gum) disease attacks and destroys.

We have therefore had a very strong emphasis for many years on the assessment, prevention and treatment of periodontal disease.

Our team of hygienists provide routine maintenance care. For the vast majority of patients regular hygiene appointments help them keep their teeth and gums healthy, their breath fresh, and help prevent the need for advanced treatment.

Patients whose periodontal condition has deteriorated beyond a certain level require advanced assessment and treatment, and here at Lyndhurst we are ideally placed to handle such situations. Scott Wetton is an integral member of our team, receiving referrals from many general practitioners across the South West. He also welcomes patients who wish to self-refer if they have particular concerns about their periodontal health.
