What Causes Gum Disease?
Gum disease, also known as periodontal disease, is primarily caused by the buildup of plaque and tartar on the teeth. Regular dental check-ups and proper oral hygiene practices are crucial to prevent it, but any of the following risks can contribute to its development:
- Poor oral hygiene
- Tobacco/E-Cigarette use
- Certain medications
- Hormonal changes
- Genetic factors

What Is Involved In Periodontal Disease Treatment?
Our periodontal disease treatment in Milton Keynes aims to halt the progression of gum disease, prevent further damage, and restore the health of your gums. The specific treatment plan will depend on the severity of your disease but typically involves:
- Scaling and Root Planing:
This deep cleaning procedure removes plaque and tartar buildup from above and below the gum line. It also involves smoothing the tooth roots to promote gum reattachment.
- Periodontal Maintenance:
Following initial treatment, regular periodontal maintenance visits are essential to monitor your gum health and ensure that the disease remains under control.
- Surgical Intervention:
In advanced cases, surgical treatments such as gum grafting or pocket reduction surgery may be necessary to restore gum health and prevent further damage to the supporting structures of the teeth.

What Our Patients Say About Us
After avoiding the dentist for many years due to being a nervous patient, I sadly found myself with gum disease. I booked in with Diamond Dental MK and genuinely couldn’t recommend them more. The care I received was exceptional, and they were absolutely amazing at calming my nerves. I now feel so much more confident visiting the dentist and will continue visiting them for my treatments without worrying.
