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 environment. Our head office is located in Kent Town, Adelaide SA with practices in Berri SA, Hervey Bay QLD, Bundaberg QLD, Sunshine Coast QLD and Darwin NT.
We specialise or are specialists in the treatment of gum diseases and the placement of dental implants. Our focus is on providing you with top-of-the-line dental services in a friendly and caring environment. If you need a skilled and highly respected Periodontist in Adelaide we should be your first point of call. Our services include:
- Periodontics - We specialise in the management of all periodontal diseases with non-surgical, surgical and now laser management procedures
- Implants - Dental implants are generally the most sought after option for replacing lost or damaged teeth and are preferred over conventional dentures or bridges. Dental implants look and feel very close to natural teeth, unlike dentures that tend to feel out of place in the mouth
- Cleaning and Prevention - Whether you’re here for an initial visit or as an ongoing patient, our dental team (or “oral therapist”) can carry out a thorough scale and clean to remove plaque and tartar, which are the primary cause of gum disease such as gingivitis and periodontitis, and tailor a personalised oral hygiene programme for you.
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.
