Referrals are accepted for advice, treatment and second opinions for:
- Gingivitis (swollen gums)
- Gum disease
- Gum disease treatment around implants- Peri-implantitis
- Cosmetic gum graft to correct gum shrinkage
- Correction of uneven gum line
- Lengthen teeth (crown lengthening) where teeth are two short to repair

Dentist refers patient to IKON via Valident, our secure online portal, by phone or by post.

Confirmation is sent to the referring dentist.
After the consultation, the patient and referring dentist are sent reports, proposed treatments, forms and guarantees.
The referring dentist receives updates of all procedures.
On completion, the patient returns to the referring dentist for ongoing care.
Follow-up appointments to check on the progress of the treatment may be required.
