Periodontal cases

Teeth with active periodontal disease should not be moved with braces since this will accelerate any bone loss.  Moving teeth with inactive perio is generally OK and is usually quite quick, since there is less bone to move the teeth through.

If the perio disease become active during treatment then movement is stopped temporarily.

Moving teeth straight will not prevent perio disease.  As far as we are aware there is no link between irregularity of teeth and perio disease.

When visiting the practice, please only do so if you have an appointment booked. Please do not attend if you are experiencing COVID symptoms, should be isolating, are awaiting a COVID test result, or have been abroad in the last 10 days. The front door will be locked, so when attending please press the buzzer to announce yourself for your appointment. Those in active treatment, please try, if at all possible, to attend alone.
