Periodontal & Hygienist Services

Gum disease is the biggest single cause of tooth loss in adults

 

This is a problem that we take very seriously at Thanet House Dental Care. Your oral health is our number 1 priority.

Research shows that not only can poor oral health cause tooth decay, bad breath and tooth loss, it can also increase the risk of heart attack, stroke, diabetes, lung conditions, mouth cancer, premature birth and miscarriage.

We are very lucky to have a Specialist Periodontist working at our practice. Dr Georgios Chatzopoulos is highly qualified in all areas of complex periodontal disease and implant dentistry. He is one of only a handful of Specialist Periodontists in the UK that are fully trained and certified to provide Pinhole Surgical Technique, which the latest gum recession breakthrough treatment that is quick, easy and instantly aesthetically pleasing. It requires no cutting and stitching unlike traditional gum grafting. There is also less discomfort for the patient, with a much quicker recovery time resulting in natural looking results.

A needle is used to make a small hole in your gum tissue. Through this ‘pinhole’ special instruments are used to gently loosen gum tissue and expand the tissue to cover exposed root, meaning donor gum is no longer necessary.

Dr Chatzopoulos is supported by two dental Hygienists at the practice who provide periodontal hygiene maintenance and education to help you to develop good cleaning techniques.

Our Periodontal team are fully qualified to diagnose and treat any gum problems you may have.

I have been extremely happy with every aspect of my dental care since i transferred to Thanet House Dental Care from my previous provider. As such, since i was recommended to Thanet House Dental Care by a family member, i would be happy to similarly recommend the practice to others, if asked

David & Ann January 2021

“I would like to thank Dr Parvin and her team in Thanet House Dental for their professionalism and utmost care provided always. I am well impressed by the endodontist, Tanya I had an appointment with today. She kept me informed on the procedures all the way and I could feel that I was in very safe and experienced hands. The whole procedure was painless. I would highly recommend Tanya.”

A Patient, November 2020

“Really impressed with the work of Dr Uchenna Obhio, I had a filling on the side of my tooth which needed to be replaced – can’t tell there’s ever been a hole there, it just looks like a natural tooth.”

A Patient, November 2020

“I just wanted to say thank you to Parvin for treating me with so much kindness and patience today. I was extremely nervous and Parvin was amazing.
The injections meant I couldn’t express myself in person so this is the next best thing! Thank you also to the lovely lady on reception who was exceedingly polite and professional.”

A Patient, November 2020

“I cannot say enough about the care that your surgery has given my husband and myself over the last twenty years would not cannot praise you all enough. Thank you all so much.”

A Patient, September 2020

“I have used Thanet House Dental Care service for many years, and I am only ceasing to do so in the future because I am moving a very considerable distance away from the area. Throughout my association with this service I have always found the administrative and nursing staff staff to be very efficient, sympathetic, and understanding of ones needs. I have had a long association with the principal of the service, and she has always been the person who has taken care of my dental requirements and treatment. I cannot thank her enough for the years of professional care she has devoted to me. She heads a very well-run establishment, which should be a model for other practises to follow. I thank them all, and wish them all well in the future.”
