Our dental therapists & hygienists work closely with our dentists to deliver gum treatment, cleaning and advice. Whether your needs involve cosmetic cleaning of staining, simple removal of tartar deposits or more complex gum treatment, we can cater to all your personal requirements.
If you have a history of gum disease, or if indeed you have active gum disease or periodontitis, our therapists will treat and help guide you with home care. At Skipton Road we can carry out all the periodontal treatment needed, but home maintenance will be required between visits to help stay on top of your gum disease. Our therapists will educate you and show you how to keep your teeth and gums free of plaque bacteria to ensure the best gum health possible.
Sometimes other preventive treatments are required such as fluoride treatments and fissure sealants. Our dental therapists & hygienists are skilled in all areas of preventative dentistry, and can provide these to meet your needs.
We encourage regular maintenance for those patients with a history of active gum disease. People with this condition frequently choose to join our Denplan Members plan that allows for budgeting of this over the year.
