Welcome you to our practice. We’re pleased to have the chance to assist you and appreciate the trust you have placed in us. You may have been advised, or believe, that you have a periodontal or gum disorder requiring specialised periodontal treatment to preserve existing teeth, or replace missing teeth with dental implants, in order to restore your chewing, speech capabilities and smile. These are the areas that National Periodontics specialises in.
If you have lost one or more teeth and don’t like the prospect of wearing a denture or having teeth cut down to make conventional bridges, there is hope. Implants are changing the quality of our lives! They are designed to replace teeth so that they look, feel, and function like natural teeth.
Periodontists are dentistry's experts in treating periodontal disease. They receive additional university dental qualifications, specialising in the management of periodontal (gum) diseases in both non-surgical and surgical procedures and also perform periodontal plastic surgery.
Cleaning & Prevention
The initial treatment for periodontal disease is usually a thorough cleaning that may include scaling or root planing. The objective of these non-surgical procedures is to remove causative agents such as dental plaque and tartar, or calculus, which cause gingivitis.
National Periodontics’ goal is to provide you with excellent periodontal and implant treatments in a comfortable, caring and friendly environ- ment. Our head office is located in Payneham, Adelaide SA with practices in Berri SA, Reynella SA, Hervey Bay QLD, Bundaberg QLD, Sunshine Coast QLD and Darwin NT.

Our services include:
- Periodontics - We specialise in the management of periodontal diseases. We perform non-surgical and surgical periodontal therapy, periodontal cosmetic surgery and lately offer periodontal laser management procedures

- Cleaning and Prevention - Whether you’re here for an initial visit or as an ongoing patient, our periodontal team / oral therapist will tailor a personalised oral hygiene maintenance programme for the patient.
- Management of Muco-cutaneous Lesions - In some cases we can also manage/monitor periodontal manifestations of autoimmune conditions such as lichen planus, cicatricial pemphigoid, pemphigus, lupus erythematosus, erythema multiforme. This management is very often in conjunction with the patient’s dermatologist/physician or oral surgeon.
New Technology Adelaide Dentists Love
A recent development in periodontal therapy is the Periolase® MVP-7™laser with the LANAP protocol. This laser therapy works by targeting only the infected gum and is able to distinguish between infected and healthy gum. The laser has the amazing ability to stimulate the gum and bone to reattach to the tooth and thereby creating a lower chance of gum disease returning.
Why is LANAP treatment the next big thing?
The biggest reason PerioLase MVP-7 therapy is the next real advance in the field of dentistry is that it is virtually painless. Unlike conventional gum surgery where scalpels and sutures are a necessity, the PerioLase MVP-7 and the LANAP protocol requires no blade cutting or stitching.
The advantage is that it there is no extensive tissue damage, as the resulting incisions are very fine and thus the gum heals faster as in comparison / when compared to traditional surgery. The major advantage for patients is that this means a shorter recovery time, and with virtually no post-operative pain, and which allows them to resume their daily routine as soon as they leave the practice.
However, the main reason people would select to have this procedure when compared to regular gum surgery is that it results in minimal (if any) loss of gum height which is often a cause of tooth sensitivity. In addition, it also helps to create a much healthier environment in the mouth and in particular around the treated teeth by killing the germs under the gum and reducing inflammation , allowing for quicker healing times with minimal post-operative pain in the gums or teeth.
Why choose us?
We are one of the leading periodontal practices in Adelaide and pride ourselves on using the latest treatments. The PerioLase MVP-7 with the LANAP treatment protocol is one of the latest cutting edge techniques that we are able to offer our patients. We guarantee minimal discomfort, a fast recovery and treatment which is generally completed in two appointments within a 2-4 week period. There are a few follow-ups in order to check that everything is healing at a normal pace without any hiccups.
The PerioLase MVP-7 with the LANAP protocol is a procedure that has been tested and is now approved for use in the UK, US, Canada, Australia and Europe. However, the procedure can only be carried out by licensed practitioners.
When it comes to dental treatments, it is extremely important that you choose your dentist with care. Our professional team has been providing patients with the best periodontal and implant services for many years (or “over three decades”).
