Have you noticed severe swelling or bleeding every time you brush your teeth? Periodontitis, or gum disease, is more common than you think, but that doesn’t mean you should live with the pain and discomfort.
At Wimpole Street Dental Clinic, we can provide periodontitis treatment as soon as we diagnose the disease. We’ll then use a structured recall system to help you prioritise regular dental check-ups and oral health appointments to prevent gum disease in the future.
Even if you’re not in pain, you could still be experiencing the early stages of periodontal disease. The most common signs of periodontitis (gum) disease include:
Healthy Gums → Gingivitis → Mild Periodontitis → Moderate Periodontitis

The level of care and treatment I received from Wimpole Street Dental Clinic, was truly above and beyond. The expertise, perfectionism, and kindness Dr Mehl provided was such a welcoming change from my previous dental experiences over the years. After 6 months of treatment, I finally have teeth without pain or infections, and have overcome my fear of the dentist. With Dr Mehl also continuing to be active in the academic aspect of dentistry, his experience and knowledge is constantly evolving. I very much admire his dedication. The quality of the materials used, as well as the level of cleanliness within the clinic, were again, a very welcoming change. I cannot thank Dr Mehl and his team enough for the care I received, and I am looking forward to returning for my routine check-up in 6 months’ time. I would also like the to extend my gratitude to the welcoming, accommodating and supportive Reception staff. What a truly lovely dental practice!
