It is a very common condition and, when left untreated, is the leading cause of tooth loss. Thankfully, with good regular oral care and advice, it is almost entirely avoidable.
At Greenwich Dental Practice we can help look after your gums and keep them healthy. We advise regular check-ups and appointments with the Hygienist to help prevent potential problems from developing. As well as providing preventative care, our team can detect any issues and take prompt and effective action when required.
Looking after your gums is essential to maintain good oral health. Problems arise due to the build-up of bacteria along the gum line. This can then develop into tartar which aggravates, enflames and infects the gums. Symptoms at this stage include bad breath and bleeding gums.
If gum disease isn’t treated it can progress into a more serious condition and potentially lead to the loss of teeth.
At Greenwich Dental Practice we are able to both prevent and treat the majority of periodontal problems. A specialist Periodontist will be used to treat more severe cases.
The best way to look after your gums is by making regular visits to the Hygienist. At these appointments your teeth will be properly cleaned to prevent plaque building up and your gums carefully checked for any potential issues. A good, daily oral hygiene routine that includes flossing will also help protect your gums.
