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.
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.
No matter what your situation, you’ve come to the right place for your health and happiness.
Periodontists are specialists in identifying, treating and managing gum disease to get the prime outcome for you.
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.

You don’t need a referral from your dentist. Even without a referral, we will keep your regular dentist up to date on your treatment and make sure they are part of your journey to back to health.
We will listen to you and ask questions until we know we’ve gotten to the heart of your concerns. We’ll assess you thoroughly and reach a detailed diagnosis.
Together with you, we’ll develop a customised treatment plan that’s perfectly suited to your life, and you get started on your path to a future of great gums and healthy teeth.
At every stage, gingivitis or periodontitis can be treated or managed with a tailored plan to restore health and prevent tooth loss.
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.
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.
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.
