Gum disease

Attending regular dental hygiene appointments helps to maintain healthy teeth and gums. Not regularly visiting your dentist or hygienist can result in a number of issues, most notably gum disease. Known professionally as periodontal disease, poor dental maintenance allows plaque to build up in your mouth, plaque which soon hardens to form tartar which inflames and irritates your gums, damaging bones and ligaments around your mouth.

You may already have gum disease if you recognise the following symptoms:

  • Increased tooth sensitivity,
  • Swelling around your teeth,
  • Abscessed teeth,
  • Heavily bleeding gums when brushing,
  • Recession of the bone and gums.

Brushing

To avoid plaque build up it is important to thoroughly clean your teeth and gums at least twice a day. Remember, each tooth has five surfaces – a front, a back, two sides and a top. The only one sure way to prevent dental disease is to clean every surface.

There are many different toothbrushing techniques available and it is best to ask your dental professional to advise you of the one that is right for you.

  • Daily Oral Hygiene
  • Regular maintenance
