Treat my gums

Take the first step
towards healthier gums

Are you experiencing issues such as sore or bleeding gums? Do you notice your teeth moving or becoming looser? Are your gums starting to recede? Teeth are more often lost due to gum disease than decay, so it’s essential to keep your gums healthy and treat any issues that you might be experiencing. Catch gum disease before it becomes too advanced to avoid tooth loss – and if you are already suffering, don’t suffer in silence. Turn to the experts and allow us to help.

How can we treat your gums and make them healthier?

We have expert hygienists on hand to help you maintain or improve the health of your gums and mouth.

Your hygienist will:

  • Complete an assessment, looking for gum inflammation, bleeding, soft plaque and calculus.
  • Complete a scale and polish to remove any of these soft and hard deposits.


If your gum disease is more advanced and you are noticing issues such as bleeding gums, loose teeth or abscesses, your hygienist can offer specialist treatment or refer you on to a dentist. They may carry out treatments such as:

  • Root planing. Bacteria are cleaned from underneath the gums, getting deep into the tissue.
  • Periodontal surgery. You may require surgery or a tooth extraction if there is an infection.


Your dentist might prescribe a course of antibiotics if you need periodontal treatment.

Booking your initial appointment

We will help you to achieve and maintain excellent oral health. The first step is to book an appointment with our dental hygienist team. They can assess your gums and see what course of treatment you need, either completing a clean themselves or referring you on to a specialist dentist who can treat the problem. They can continue to advise you after your treatment, so you can maintain good oral health and keep your gums and teeth healthy.
