The importance of healthy gums

Gum disease (also known as periodontal disease) is the most common cause of tooth loss in adults. It is usually caused by the build up of plaque on the teeth and, if left untreated, it can lead to serious health issues.

The condition usually develops as a result of inadequate dental hygiene. Plaque and tartar build can cause inflammation, but if they also go on to enter the bloodstream, other body organs such as the kidney and liver may be affected.

Our periodontist has great experience in treating gum disease and restoring the affected tissues to good health. He can also treat a wide range of other conditions relating to the gums. His areas of expertise include:

Frequently asked questions about gum disease

What causes gum disease?

Gum disease is usually a result of the accumulation of plaque – a sticky film of bacteria which develops on the surface of teeth and gums each day. The majority of bacteria in plaque are harmless, though certain types have been identified to be the major culprits behind gum disease.

What can I do to protect against gum issues?

In order to protect your gums from harm you should make sure to thoroughly clean your teeth twice a day. Brushing and flossing are the most successful methods of maintaining good oral health.

It is also important to regularly attend appointments with your dentist or hygienist at the practice. This will enable them to act quickly if they spot any issues.

What are the early signs of gum disease?
The common early indicators of gum disease are:
  • Chronic bad breath
  • Swelling
  • Gum discoloration
  • Bleeding while brushing or flossing
  • Pain while chewing
  • Loose teeth
  • Sensitivity and tenderness
