If you are suffering from bleeding gums, swollen gums or sore red gums then you may have the first signs of gum disease. However, gum disease does not always present obvious symptoms. A lot of people will suffer from gum disease during their adult life and although it can lead to more serious dental issues if untreated, it can be controlled. By practising dental cleaning routines at home and booking regular appointments to see our hygienist, you can keep your teeth and gums healthy.
The major cause of gum disease is the build up of bacteria on your teeth that eventually forms into plaque. By toothbrushing and using interdental cleaning brushes regularly, you can help prevent gum disease developing. Dental floss can also clean under the gum line but we also advise visiting our modern dental surgery in Rochdale at least twice a year. Here our expert team of hygienists can monitor your oral health and detect any serious signs of disease. If we encounter progressive stages of periodontitis and the loss of a tooth is at risk, then we can create a personalised plan in preparation for specialist treatment. Preventative measures for gum disease include:
At Edenfield Cosmetic & Dental Care we care about your smile and will help you take the necessary steps in protecting your smile for years to come. If gum disease is left uncontrolled, it will cause gingivitis (inflammation) which could lead to periodontitis. If gums recede and bone loss occurs, your teeth will eventually fall out. With good dental hygiene and regular visits to our hygienist we can hold any bad symptoms at bay and keep your smile happy.
Gum disease should be dealt with as soon as possible so if you experiencing any discomfort, inflammation or the symptoms mentioned, please contact our dental practice without delay.
