What is gum disease?
This occurs in many adults, where teeth lose their soft tissue and bone support. This leads to tooth sensitivity, unsightly gaps between teeth, root decay and even loss of teeth. Routine gum (periodontal) treatments such as tooth scaling are performed by general dentists and hygienists. However, there are very few specialists in periodontics. These are dentists with additional training and qualifications in the provision of advanced gum treatments and dental implants.
The Priestgate Clinic is delighted to have attracted a periodontal specialist to this area – Dr Emiliano Zanaboni DDS, MSc, PG Implant Dentistry, MClinDent (Perio).
What does specialist periodontal treatment do?
Non-surgical treatments include deep cleaning of infected gum tissues. Surgical work, often referred to as the ‘plastic surgery of dentistry’, involves tissue grafts to reconstruct lost soft tissues (for severe gum recession), cosmetic sculpting of the gum and bone tissues, plus all aspects of dental implantology.
Dr Emiliano Zanaboni is a specialist periodontist at the Priestgate Clinic, Peterborough. For further advice please contact via the website at www.priestgateclinic.co.uk or ring the clinic on 01733 865000.
