Gum Disease (Periodontics) in Peterborough, Cambridgeshire

Gum disease (periodontal disease) is the leading cause of tooth loss in adults. Its treatment and control is the single most important factor underpinning all aspects of dentistry. Gum disease is caused by excessive bacterial accumulation in the mouth, and along the gum margins, in a biological medium better known as plaque.

Gum disease can be incredibly painful, and if allowed to progress, can result in destruction of the underlying bone, recession of the gums, abscesses, mobility, and the premature loss of teeth.

Dr Razaq will work closely with the patient, to decelerate and stabilise the effects of gum disease. Treatment involves the thorough removal of plaque and hard deposits, and the use of topical antimicrobials in specific cases. We support patients in developing a regular maintenance programme, both at home, and in conjunction with our dentist.
