At The Bespoke Dentist, London, we firmly believe that gums are the unsung heroes of oral health. They don't just anchor our teeth in place but serve as the first line of defence against bacteria and disease. Healthy gums act as solid barriers, but when affected by gum disease, this protective role is compromised, leading to potential problems in the mouth and throughout the body.
Periodontal disease, often called gum disease, initially manifests with symptoms that might seem minor: gum redness, a bit of swelling, or occasional bleeding during brushing. However, these can be warning signs of deeper issues. If these symptoms are ignored, the disease can progress, causing gum recession, persistent bad breath, and eventually, tooth loss and other systemic health challenges.
Here are some signs you need to see a Periodontist:
Remember, early detection and intervention are crucial in managing and reversing gum disease. If any of these signs are observed, seeking professional dental care is advised.
Periodontics is more than just treating gums; it's about holistic oral care. Our primary goal is early detection and prevention, which begins with a comprehensive gum assessment where we employ advanced diagnostic tools to gauge the state and severity of any potential disease. This foundational assessment allows us to craft a treatment plan ranging from routine cleanings to more specialised periodontal treatments.
Knowledge is a powerful tool in healthcare. We invest time to discuss with our patients the nuances of gum disease, the rationale behind recommended treatments, and strategies for prevention by understanding why and how patients are more empowered and involved in their oral health journey.
At The Bespoke Dentist, every patient and every treatment are unique. Whether you need a basic cleaning to remove plaque buildup, scaling to address more advanced gum issues or even surgical interventions for advanced cases, our team ensures each procedure is carried out precisely. Beyond the treatment, we also provide guidelines and tips to maintain optimal gum health at home.
Our comprehensive approach includes:
With our dedicated approach, we aim to ensure precision in every procedure, enhancing long-term oral health.

I had a great experience, Daniel removed my Amalgam filling on the same appointment on one great visit and it all happened professionally in was over in hardly anytime at all with a medium amalgam being removed. I felt at home and and Daniel was there to answer many of questions I had about mixing the holistic approach with what he has noticed in his experience and his honest opinions, also the was there to give me a general check up as well and things that might be worth checking with current dentist. Would love to head back to see Daniel again is anything else pops up. Would highly recommend him for Amalgam as he does so many on a weekly basis and has done for numerous years, so you are definitely in the right hands
If you’re looking for an unforgettably brilliant and pain free experience then you’ve found your dental practice. I had 4 large amalgams removed in quick time and pain free. It was a complicated process made easy! Thank you to the entire team for giving me the faith that miracles do happen. I have suffered with dental phobia my entire life and now I can’t wait to see you again. I wouldn’t go anywhere else ever again. No matter where I am in the world.
The best dentist I’ve ever had the pleasure of meeting. Daniel is warm, friendly and very knowledgeable. He is extremely patient and was happy to answer all my questions and put my mind at ease. He was able to quickly establish and identify a condition I had which none of my previous dentists had ever picked up on and recommended a fix. The work I had done was completely painless and I can’t believe how at ease and calm I was, all thanks to Daniel and his lovely assistant. I would recommend him a thousand times over.
Regular brushing, flossing, professional dental cleanings, and check-ups are essential for prevention. A balanced diet, quitting smoking, and managing conditions like diabetes can also help reduce the risk.
If you have periodontal disease or other gum-related issues, your periodontist will recommend a frequency tailored to your needs. For those with healthy gums, regular check-ups with a general dentist are usually sufficient.
Recovery times vary depending on the specific treatment. For non-surgical treatments like scaling and root planing, the recovery might be a few days. Surgical procedures might require a week or more for complete healing.
Yes, antibiotics can be used to supplement periodontal treatment. They help eliminate or reduce the bacteria causing the infection. They can be administered orally or placed directly into periodontal pockets.
Many periodontal treatments are minimally invasive and can be performed with local anesthesia to ensure patient comfort. There may be some discomfort or swelling after the procedure, but this is generally manageable with over-the-counter pain relievers.
