If left untreated, this can lead to gum disease, one of the leading causes of tooth loss in adults. At Surbiton Dental, we can help you prevent and treat gum disease.
Our mouths are full of bacteria, known as plaque. If this plaque is left to build up on our teeth, it causes inflammation of the gums, known as Gingivitis.
Gingivitis: The gums around your teeth become red, swollen, and often bleed when you brush your teeth. This is the earliest sign of gum disease and shouldn’t be ignored. Gingivitis is completely reversible with daily brushing, flossing and regular professional cleans by a hygienist.
When gingivitis isn’t treated it can lead to inflammation around the tooth, known as Periodontal disease.
Periodontal Disease: This causes irreversible destruction of the supporting gums and bone around your teeth. The gum starts to pull away from your teeth and form spaces known as ‘pockets.’
The following factors mean you may have a higher risk of developing gum disease:
Our dental hygienist and therapist are highly trained to treat gum disease. This process involves cleaning below the gum line to remove deposits of plaque and tartar which you can’t reach.
If your gum disease is severe or advanced, we may recommend you see a periodontal specialist.
