Periodontics is treatment of the supporting tissues of the teeth, the periodontium. Most of the periodontal or gum treatment at Peelhouse Dental Care is carried out by our two Dental Hygiene Therapists under the guidance of our dentists.
However, sometimes more advanced treatment is required, such as periodontal surgery or gum graft surgery. This is then carried out by our dentists and then referred back to the therapists as needed.
We often find patients who need this type of treatment need a multidisciplinary approach and often require some endodontics as well and possible some general oral surgery.
As we work within a team we are able to involve other clinicians in the treatment process when the time is right and we can share our expertise.
Our dental health care plans are for our patients who are dentally fit or have had a course of treatment and want to maintain that level of dental health.
They involve dental health checks with the dentists or therapists and hygiene/gum treatments with the dental hygiene therapists.
