Over time, plaque tends to build up on and around our teeth, resulting in periodontal disease, which is the degradation of the gum tissues and bones in the mouth.

Causing an array of dental problems, the symptoms of gum disease include bad breath, an unpleasant taste in the mouth, bleeding, swollen and inflamed gums and toothache. Not always easy to spot, if gum disease is left untreated it can cause the loss of teeth, as well as a number of more serious ailments.

At no.8 Clinic Cornmarket we carefully help prevent and manage oral disease through our catalogue of oral health care services. Always focused on the wider dental picture, our gentle hygienist services take the patient’s full dental background into consideration. Our array of hygienist treatments includes scale and polish as well as periodontal work and root planing.
