Periodontal disease is the most common, non-contagious disease in human beings.
Modern scientific knowledge of the human immune system, genetic composition and bacterial types have improved our understanding of periodontal diseases dramatically. Many decades ago a diagnosis of periodontal disease (pyorrhoea) usually meant that all your teeth had to be removed. That is why a whole generation of denture wearers still exist. Nowadays we can treat periodontal disease very effectively. It is possible to reduce the amount of disease to a minimum and maintain a healthy state. Early intervention and treatment is the key to success.
We are equipped and formally trained to deal with the treatment of all forms of gum disease (periodontitis). If you really want to know the truth and read valuable information about gum disease, don’t browse dental websites, read what a professional organisation has to say. We would advise that you visit www.perio.org or www.bsperio.org
These are the best sources of knowledge and information on periodontitis/gum disease.

Dear Mr Hattingh, Thank you so much for seeing and treating Heather successfully. I just wanted to say that I don’t think I have had a patient assessed and treated so thoroughly and I am truly amazed by your results. You truly are the most impressive periodontologist I have ever encountered, so thank you again. Best wishes
