Oral hygiene is key to the prevention of most dental diseases, as decay and gum disease stem from the accumulation of bacteria on your teeth.
Our dentists work closely with our dental hygienist to deliver a personalised preventive programme to ensure you achieve the best gum and dental health possible for you.
We will show you directly how to care for your mouth, advising you of the best periodontal products to use on a day-to-day basis, therefore empowering you to retain your teeth for longer.
From time to time professional dental cleaning (scaling, polishing) is needed in order to clean the less accessible areas and to remove tartar deposits which tooth brushing alone cannot remove.
Our dental hygienists have the most up to date equipment to clean and brighten teeth, using the EMS Air Flow system for comfortable freshness.
Healthy gums and the underlying bone, which support your teeth, are vital to retain your teeth and smile. Without healthy gums you will not have healthy teeth.
Gum disease is also linked to some general health conditions, such as diabetes and heart disease. This is why keeping gums healthy is critically important in keeping you healthy, prevention is the key to all this.
Signs of gum problems are bleeding gums, tooth mobility and teeth changing position, as well as sometimes a bad breath or a foul taste.
The ultimate goal is to save your natural teeth as long as possible and all our clinicians will assess your gums, provide advice, treat any active gum disease and provide follow up care.
The discipline dealing with all sorts of gum problems is called “Periodontology”.

In addition to regular gum care, he also carries out more complex gum treatments, including treatments to stop gum infection, tooth stabilization, as well as advanced gum corrective measures such as:
Sebastian also takes referrals from other dentists for their patients who may have gum problems or even advanced periodontitis.
