Led by Dr. Richard Longbottom, a distinguished expert periodontist, Noble Dental is now utilizing perioscopy – an innovative and advanced technology that ensures accurate diagnosis of gum disease and its severity.

A recent report in North & South Magazine noted that nearly half of adults living in New Zealand exhibit signs of gum disease – which, left untreated, can have dire consequences, impacting the gums, alveolar bone, and periodontal ligament. Noble Dental recognizes the urgency of early detection and timely intervention, which forms the cornerstone of their advanced periodontics approach.

Perioscopy is a state-of-the-art procedure that utilizes a miniature dental endoscope with advanced lighting and magnification. The endoscope is placed below the gum line – enabling a thorough cleaning, effectively reducing harmful bacteria, and promoting natural healing.

“The benefits of perioscopy and advanced periodontics extend beyond successful gum disease treatment; they encompass minimal discomfort, reduced costs, and fewer invasive procedures compared to traditional surgical options,” adds Dr. Longbottom.

Noble Dental is led by Dr. Longbottom, a distinguished specialist in implant dentistry, perioscopy, and periodontology. He stays at the forefront of his field by actively participating in conferences and seminars, ensuring that patients receive the most up-to-date and effective care.

The practice has two locations: 31 Peach Parade, Remuera, Auckland 1050, and BDO Takapuna Tower, 19 Como Street, Takapuna, Auckland 0622.

“We are dedicated to revolutionizing gum disease treatment through perioscopy,” says Dr. Longbottom. “Our unwavering focus is not only on saving teeth from unnecessary extractions, but also on stimulating new bone growth through repair and guided tissue regeneration.”
