Spyridon joined Confident Orthodontics in March 2016 having qualified in Clinical Periodontology at the University of Central Lancashire in November 2013; a three year course that qualifies the practitioner to diagnose, treat and manage gum disease.
After qualifying as a dental surgeon in 2002, Spyridon came to England in 2004 where he continues to practice.
Periodontics became a passion for Spyridon when he realised that this was an area where he could make a real difference to the patient’s outcome. Gum disease is so often the hidden culprit behind tooth loss, with very little evidence of its presence until real damage has occurred. It can cause teeth to move and gums to bleed, recede and allow infection in. It is also linked to serious medical problems such as stroke, diabetes and cardiovascular problems. Identifying gum disease can also help flag up a potential medical problem the patient may be unaware of.
By adopting a 5 stage approach to Periodontics Spyridon believes that the disease can be managed to give the best outcome for the patient.
