Periodontology is the study of the structures supporting teeth in the mouth, that are the gums & bones. We have a periodontist who specialises in this field to offer the best help available in these areas, as well as a therapist and hygienist.
Dr. Josephine Bayliss Chapman & Dr. Sanjit Nijjar are qualified specialists in periodontology and implantology, treating patients with advanced or progressive periodontal (or gum) disease. They also have experience placing implants where teeth have been lost.
Periodontal disease is how most people lose teeth, so extra care in brushing and flossing is vital.
In our practice we recommend that people have regular hygiene care to prevent bone and tooth loss.
