Gum Disease Help

  • Throbbing and bleeding gums?
  • Significant build-up of plaque and tartar?
  • Gums receding and forming black pockets?

Trust us when we say gum disease is not an oral condition you ever want to ignore. 

  • You’ve ignored gum disease for some time.
  • You experience symptoms daily, which have gotten worse.
  • Gums are starting to pull away from the teeth.
  • You smoke or have diabetes.

Let’s see what stage you’re in. A check-up costs £50 at our London practice, which includes two essential X-rays.

Serious symptoms

  • Loose, wobbly teeth
  • Gums pulling away from teeth
  • Triangular black pockets

Mild symptoms

  • Bleeding and swollen gums
  • Bad breath and taste
  • Sensitive teeth


  • Root planing and scaling
  • Periodontal therapy
  • Laser gum surgery


  • Hygiene session basic £67
  • Hygiene with dentist £85
  • Check-up exam £95

Don’t ignore these serious symptoms

  • Loose teeth
  • Sensitive teeth
  • Pain when chewing
  • Receding gums
  • Changes to your bite
  • Throbbing gums

You should still act fast if you’re not experiencing any of these serious signs yet. Ignoring gum disease in the early stages is a big mistake.

We can reverse the condition if you’re exhibiting early signs of gingivitis.

  • Swollen and puffy gums
  • Red gums that bleed when brushing

But if you let gum disease progress further than this, we can only manage your symptoms and stop the disease from taking your teeth.

Treatments to fight gum disease

Depending on the stage of your gum disease, we can recommend certain treatments that can either help to get rid of the condition completely, help receding gums and give your mouth and gums a good clean. If you have gingivitis, a simple session with the hygienist regularly will be enough to reverse gum disease and get your gums and teeth healthy again.

1. Deep cleaning sessions

If your gum disease is causing gums to pull away from teeth, an advanced deep cleaning session will be necessary to treat the bacteria falling into these small pockets.

The periodontal deep cleaning session will eliminate plaque and tartar build-up through scaling and root planning procedures.

2. Periodontal therapy

Periodontal therapy describes several prescribed treatments by a dentist with a special interest in periodontal care that will help rebuild your gums and work to reduce signs of the disease.

The treatments involves cleaning below the gum line to prevent the disease’s progression and prevent the tooth from falling out. 

3. Laser gum surgery

Laser gum surgery can be used to treat gum disease. The cutting-edge procedure uses lasers to target areas with plaque build-up and deep cleans the tooth, root and deep pockets.

Performed by a dentist with a special interest in periodontics, it’s possible to remove the inflamed gum tissue from around the tooth’s roots.

4 years a customer and always professional yet friendly service. Corrected my major issues (fillings/caps) and while they're keen to ensure ongoing 'perfect teeth' they don't hard sell peripheral / optional treatments. Highly recommended

I was looking for somewhere with a personal touch, that I could trust and that’s what I got at Mint. They always remember my name and are so polite. After a year of zoom meetings I really wanted my teeth to be straight and the results completely surpassed my expectations. I now feel comfortable taking photos! The team explained everything clearly (I felt I could ask anything multiple times) appointments were always organised and it was a really easy, worthwhile process. My teeth look like my teeth but are now at their best.

The clinic is a really lovely place to visit - it is extremely clean and all of the staff are very friendly. They were kind and reassuring all the way through my Invisalign treatment - as well as having amazing technology at their disposal. Dr Imran is so accommodating and kept everything simple, addressing any concerns straight away. All in all I would definitely recommend Mint Dental Clinic, a lovely experience all round.
