Periodontist (Gum Specialist)
Here at Ethicare Dental we are proud to have a consultant specialist Periodontist, Dr Steve Bassi to deal with the gum problems that require specialist training. Severe gum problems that do not respond to normal or deep cleaning are best treated by a periodontist. They can carry out procedures to improve access for cleaning or even procedures to allow the bone which has been lost to grow back in certain instances. If your gums have suffered severe recession there are procedures that a Periodontist can carry out to graft gum back in the area. Please ask your dentist to refer you or phone to make an appointment with Dr Bassi for a consultation if you feel that you fall into these categories.
Prospective patients are required to read and understand the post operative instructions and consent form for periodontal surgery prior to treatment.
