Hygiene - Periodontologist
Periodontists are dentists who have undergone specialist training to achieve a greater understanding and expertise in managing gum problems-halitosis, receeding gums, loose teeth and bleeding gums. They also carry out cosmetic periodontal problems-recession coverage for exposed root surfaces and gum recontouring to correct irregularities and to increase the length of teeth.
The Altmore Dental Care periodontologist is able to take referrals for the following patients:

1) Patients with a BPE of 3 or 4 in any sextant (i.e. pockets > 3.5mm)
2) Patients who have had previous periodontal treatment but surgical treatment may be necessary (i.e. flap surgery) or further non-surgical treatment with adjunctive antibiotics
3) Patients with a high % of bleeding on probing in relation to a low plaque index
4) Complexity 3 cases
5) Mucogingival management (I.e. recession)
6) Crown lengthening procedures
