Periodontics deals with the maintenance and treatment of the gums and supporting structures of the teeth. The gums are the foundations for the teeth. Therefore, if they are not well looked after teeth cannot be truly healthy. A periodontist specialises in prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of gum inflammation and periodontal disease. Here at the clinic, we can offer a number of treatments.
Our resident dentist, Dr. Jason Lim, has a special interest in Periodontics. Dr. Lim gained his BDS (Hons) from King’s Cross College – London Dental Institute in 2011. Following this, he completed a foundation training year in general practice. He then went on to complete a further year of hospital training at the Department of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, situated in Portsmouth. Whilst undergoing this training he obtained his MJDF from the Royal College of Surgeons of England, in 2012. Dr. Lim then worked for three years as an Associate General Dentist situated in practices across London and Essex. Dr. Lim is in the final stages of completing his Specialist Periodontology training at the Eastman Dental Hospital, London. This will allow him to gain specialist status in this field.
There are many possible signs and symptoms a patient could experience during the development of Periodontitis. Some of which include, bleeding, red or swollen gums, loose teeth, receding gums, and bad breath. Treatment for Periodontitis is a specialised area and patients will, therefore, need to consult Dr. Lim. During the consultation, he can establish the extent of the issue and offer treatment accordingly. This may include deep cleaning and scaling for a thorough removal of plaque, or a periodontal surgery.
Gum recession treatment could involve some of the same techniques used for treating Periodontitis, along with procedures such as gum grafting or bone regeneration. Gum recession could have a number of causes. Getting to the root of this cause can allow effective treatment. Whether the cause is bruxism, vigorous brushing, inadequate oral hygiene, or gum disease there are ways we can help.
Crown lengthening is a procedure to extend the visible size of the tooth. This treatment can also be performed to make it easier to attach a dental crown. Also for people suffering from a gummy smile, there is gum reshaping which can totally change a person’s look.
Dr. Jason Lim accepts referrals from dentists working at Pearl Dental Clinic and also from dentists working in other practices for Periodontic procedures. Patients can book-in directly for a consultation with Dr. Lim by calling the practice or booking online.
