Gum disease and dental implant care so you can live your best life

Book Appointment

Gum disease can feel like a life sentence.

If you’re looking for help with gum disease, you may have symptoms that cause stress, fear, pain and even shame. Or you’re hoping to avoid those things by being proactive. Either way, the future is on your mind.

Perhaps you’ve had bleeding or swollen gums, bad breath or an unpleasant taste in your mouth, pain or sensitivity when you eat, and even loose teeth, or visible gaps between your teeth and gums. And regular cleans at the dentist haven’t fixed it. You might even have been told you’re going to lose all your teeth.


The good news is that at every stage, gum disease is treatable. Even in severe cases, it could be possible to save your teeth and get you feeling like smiling again. You can forget any feelings of fear or shame.

We are here to help you stay in tip-top shape, or get you back on track to enjoying life in comfort; you deserve it.

Expert care - delivered by specialists

We didn’t become periodontists by accident. We chose it because it's a field that’s ‘all upside’. We will never recommend treatments you don’t need, or make you come in for unnecessary appointments.

Our treatments

Gum Disease Treatment

At every stage, gingivitis or periodontitis can be treated or managed with a tailored plan to restore health and prevent tooth loss.

Dental Implants

Dental implants are an excellent tooth replacement solution. They look and work just like natural teeth and can last for 20 years or more with proper care.

Healthy gums mean a whole healthier you.

Being diagnosed with gum disease can make you feel worried, but also frustrated - especially if you’ve always taken great care of yourself.

But the truth is, there is no reason to feel ashamed. Sometimes, genetics make people more susceptible to gum disease. And there are other reasons you may need extra support to keep your gums healthy; anything from trauma to pregnancy, some medications, smoking or stress can increase your risk.


Periodontists are experts at treating gum disease and placing dental implants to get the prime outcome for you. We can assess your risk level and take into account all contributing factors to tailor the right plan for you. When your gums are healthy, the rest of you is more healthy too. It’s win-win.

EO Perio is not here to sell a product. We are here to optimise your oral health preventing gum disease, or by helping you manage a chronic condition or replace missing teeth so you’re free to be your best self.
