Periodontal disease (infection of the gum and bone around teeth) once thought to be associated with the inevitable consequence of aging has had much research invested in it. We have now come to learn that there are many risk factors and risk-indicators associated with it. But also, periodontal disease is linked to many other diseases of the body.

The phrase “long in the tooth” is a common one – and people think that they should naturally lose their teeth as they get older – but this need not be the case!!

Implants (metal titanium rods) have fast become the option of choice when faced with missing teeth.
