HomeTreatmentsPeriodontics

Periodontology is a specialist field in dentistry which pays close attention to the supporting structures of the teeth and the effects of disease which compromise those structures. Much of gum disease originates from a build-up of bacteria and if untreated may lead to the kind of inflammation that can result in loss of gum and/or bone which affects the integrity of the tooth or teeth which can lead to tooth loss.

Our multidisciplinary care includes a highly qualified specialist in Periodontics, Dr Shiehfung Tay who in addition to being on the Specialist List for Periodontics and in private practice, continues to be involved at the UCL Eastman Dental Hospital as Senior Clinical teacher for the postgraduates of the Master of Clinical Dentistry. 25 Devonshire Place is fortunate to be able to offer you this level of care.
