Maintaining healthy gums is essential for a beautiful smile and overall oral well-being. Gum issues, if left untreated, can lead to serious dental problems. At Coniston Dental Practice in West Byfleet, Surrey, we offer advanced gum treatment to address a range of gum-related concerns.

Advanced Gum Treatment at Coniston Dental Practice 2The Importance of Gum Health

Gums play a crucial role in supporting teeth and protecting their roots. Healthy gums are pink, firm, and do not bleed while brushing or flossing. Poor gum health can lead to gum diseases that affect both oral and general health.

Common Gum Problems

Gum problems are prevalent and can range from mild to severe. The two most common gum issues are:


Gingivitis is the early stage of gum disease. It causes inflammation, redness, and bleeding of the gums. However, with timely intervention and good oral hygiene, gingivitis can be reversed.


Untreated gingivitis can progress to periodontitis, a more severe gum disease. It involves the inflammation of the supporting structures of the teeth, leading to gum recession, pockets forming between teeth and gums, and potential tooth loss.

Advanced Gum Treatment Options

Coniston Dental Practice offers several advanced gum treatments to restore gum health:

Scaling and Root Planing

This deep cleaning procedure removes plaque and tartar from below the gumline. It helps in managing gingivitis and preventing its progression to periodontitis.

Laser Gum Therapy

Laser therapy targets infected gum tissues with precision, promoting healing and reducing gum pocket size. It is minimally invasive and enhances gum health.

Gum Grafting

For receding gums, gum grafting is an effective solution. Healthy gum tissue is transplanted to areas with recession, covering exposed tooth roots and enhancing aesthetics.

Benefits of Advanced Gum Treatment

  • Improved Oral Health: Advanced gum treatment prevents further gum deterioration and maintains healthy gums.
  • Enhanced Aesthetics: Gum treatments can improve the appearance of your smile by addressing issues like receding gums.
  • Reduced Discomfort: Treating gum problems can alleviate discomfort caused by sensitivity and inflammation.
  • Prevention of Tooth Loss: Addressing gum disease in its early stages helps prevent tooth loss.

Dr Nell is a fantastic dentist. Jolly, reassuring, and extremely knowledgeable. I am sad to be leaving and moving out of the area, as he and his team are outstanding.

Fantastic! Extremely welcoming and very friendly, great advice, very professional, sensible pricing. I’m a new customer and like many perhaps anxious moving to a new practice, but I felt completely at ease and comfortable throughout, it’s refreshing to have ‘old school’ service and logical advice. I can highly recommend these ladies and gents! 😁

Joined this new local dental practice on 10/5/23 and had my 6 monthly checkup with dentist, having previously filled out online health questionnaire & having had my dental history sent from previous practice. It was the most thorough checkup ever. Everyone was very caring & very professional. Very informative Dentist, charming dental nurse and friendly reception staff. Booked hygienist for the following week. Very impressed with my first visit. Its very local to me which is a bonus. Would definitely recommend the practice.Thank you Coniston.
