The Role of Our Specialists

Our specialists assess, diagnose, treat and manage all conditions involving the gums (gingivae), soft tissues, attachments (periodontal ligaments) and bone (maxilla and mandible) surrounding the teeth. Our team is heavily involved with before, during, and aftercare of our treatments to ensure a long-lasting and comfortable result.

You will also be advised of a personalised prevention program to ensure that your mouth remains healthy and stable with no active disease. Our results-orientated specialists help you through the treatment planning process to achieve your desired outcomes efficiently and effectively.

Specialist Dentistry

Specialist Periodontology is a field of dentistry that is associated with restoring the health of the foundational complex that holds teeth in place. Implantology is a field of dentistry that integrates all surgical procedures involved in the placement of various models of artificial teeth (usually made of titanium) within the bone after the loss of the original teeth.

At Al-FaPerio, we take great pride in providing our patients with the very latest in cutting edge treatments, such as laser periodontology and innovative implants. We use modern technology that has been clinically proven and tested to help us achieve the best results for you.

We are an
Award-Winning Clinic

Many thanks, Rana. You have saved my front tooth – for ten years I had gone to The London Hospital, and at the end, I was told I would eventually lose the front tooth. After coming here, with the laser treatment and cleaning, the tooth is much more stable with new bone growth evident on the X-Rays.
