Specialist periodontal care in in the South-West
- Our goal is to stop bleeding gums, save your teeth & return you to gum health.
- We provide optimal care using evidence based periodontal (gum) and dental implant treatment with the highest standards of safety and sterilization.
- Equipped with an operating microscope using microsurgical techniques in non-surgical & surgical periodontal, and implant treatment to improve clinical outcomes.
- Our state-of-the-art low dose 3-D CT scanner (aptly called the 'Green CT') gives important diagnostic information in implant or periodontal (gum) treatment planning.
Due to the Corona virus (COVID-19) outbreak, Public Health England / Government guidelines require us to close our clinic.
Our practice therefore is CLOSED and we are sad to say we are unable to see patients. Please don't worry we will let you know in due course when we will be open again.
In the meantime we’re still accepting and receiving dental referrals but won’t be seeing them for consultations just yet.
If you are a patient of our practice and have an emergency please call our practice number (01225 87 44 44) and we will get back to you.
We are one of the leading specialist periodontal practices (gum clinic) in the UK with our service limited to the specialist field of periodontics: treatment of gum diseases, treatment of gum recession and replacing lost teeth with dental implants.
- Our aim is to save your teeth even when you or your dentist may think it is not possible.
- Our focus is to stop bleeding gums, saving teeth and eliminating infections around implants (also called peri-implantitis).
We provide exceptional follow up care (after we have returned you to gum health) because clinical studies confirm that the quality of follow up care is the key factor in saving your teeth over the long term.
- We do this with our specialist supportive periodontal treatment (SPT) programme that is tailored for you.
Dental implants & gum health
When implant dentistry is required, gum health around all teeth is our first priority
- If gum disease is not successfully treated, you risk jeopardising your implant treatment.
- We specialise in implant treatment for patients with a previous history of periodontal disease.
- When implant dentists refer periodontal patients prior to their implant treatment, we restore the patient to gum health and we will always refer back for their implant treatment.
- Dr King has formulated a specialised treatment protocol for people who are prone to gum disease (the periodontally-susceptible patient) to reduce their risk of developing implant complications and jeopardising their implant treatment.
