Healthy Gums & Bones

Infected gums and the loss of bone that holds our teeth in place are known as periodontal problems. Insufficient cleaning leads to plaque – and plaque leads to problems. Gums can become inflamed and infected. Left untreated, gum disease can attack the bone and tissues surrounding the teeth and eventually cause problems for the teeth themselves.

Periodontic Experts

MODUS has the only specialist periodontist in Coventry. This allows us to treat patients with a wide range of complex gum and implant needs.

Patients come to us directly and through referral for specialist diagnosis and treatment of periodontal gum and bone disease.

Following a consultation with our award-winning specialist, we will plan a package of treatment that is tailored to your particular needs.

We are experts in:

  • Surgical and non-surgical treatment of gum and bone disease, including microsurgery
  • Treatment of implant complications
  • Periodontal bone regeneration
  • Crown lengthening to aid restoration and cosmetic dentistry
  • Periodontal plastic surgery for root coverage or augmentation of soft tissue

“Healthy gums and bones quite literally underpin all our restorative dentistry,” says Mr Matt Perkins. “When placed on a healthy foundation, other treatments are much more likely to be successful and predictable.”

Keeping You In The Pink

Thoroughly cleaning teeth every day is an essential step in maintaining healthy pink gums. Brushing is vital, but is not enough in itself. Cleaning between teeth is just as important. Flossing or using an interdental brush is necessary to prevent the build-up of plaque. Your dentist or hygienist can advise you.

Smokers are at higher risk of gum disease and respond less well to treatment. The good news is that stopping smoking can reduce the risks and improve the chances of a successful outcome.
