Best Western Dental Centre treats gum disease including bleeding gum, gum recession and loose teeth, helping you to keep your teeth for life.
Do your gum bleed by itself or when you brushes your teeth? If so you may have gum disease.
Gum disease or ‘periodontal disease’ is one of the most common factors affecting the dental health of adults, creating a multitude of problems including loss of teeth, in most extreme cases.
The signs of periodontal disease are: bleeding, inflammation in the gums, unpleasant taste and bad breath. Gum disease can cause discomfort when chewing, biting, pain and loosening of teeth.
Essentially, periodontal disease begins with the build up of plaque which, if left uncleaned, hardens into tartar. This layer of tartar is the perfect breeding ground for bacteria which in turn acts as the primary cause for infection to the area of surrounding gum.
As this infection advances through the gums, the supporting tissues are lost around the teeth and which in turn, causes the gums to recede. A pocket is then created in which more bacteria may multiply, creating further disease and infection.
How to prevent gum disease?
