It is important that you are proactive when it comes to your dental health and you are committed to a routine that includes brushing, flossing and regular trips to the dentist.
Suffering from gum disease can be extremely unpleasant because it often involves uncomfortable abscesses, bleeding, inflammation and even tooth and bone loss. The main cause of gum disease is the excessive build-up of plaque which you can avoid by keeping your teeth and gums clean and monitoring any areas that need further attention from your dentist.
The dental at our London office are skilled in treating gum disease in its common forms, which include Gingivitis and Periodontal disease. Visit your dentist if you experience the tenderness and light bleeding that often indicates the early stages of gum disease.
Gum disease is the most common dental ailment to plague us and yet is one of the easiest ailments to avoid. Regular dental care habits and regular visits to your dentist and dental hygienist are all that is necessary to escape suffering from the two forms of gum disease:
Plaque, a film of bacteria that forms continually on the gum and teeth surfaces, is the culprit that causes gum disease. The plaque itself is not actively attacking your gums or teeth, but over time, it will accumulate and create inflammation which can lead to bleeding and tiny open wounds in your gums which can become infected. Left without treatment or removal through regular brushing and flossing, plaque will cause gum disease that can lead to tooth and bone loss and painful abscesses.
Your first sign of gum disease may be tenderness and some light bleeding when you brush your teeth. Please visit your dentist if this happens – you will probably only need a simple cleaning to set you on a solid path to good dental health.
