You are here:

Periodontitis is a serious gum infection that damages the soft tissue and destroys the bone that supports your teeth.

The gums are the foundation to a stable, healthy smile!

Periodontitis can cause teeth to loosen and lead to tooth loss. Periodontitis is common but largely preventable. It’s usually the result of plaque around the gum line. Brushing at least twice a day, flossing daily and getting regular dental checkups can greatly improve your chances of successful treatment for periodontitis and can also reduce your chance of developing it.

Dr Ravi has completed a certificate in advanced treatments of periodontitis from the PerioAcademy in London, and is keen to put all his expertise and skills acquired to good use in helping his patients stabilise their gum disease and maintain their natural teeth for longer.
