What is gum disease?

Gum disease is generally the leading cause of tooth loss for adults worldwide so its treatment and control is the most important aspect of dentistry. Gum disease is caused by excessive bacteria building up in the mouth which is commonly known as plaque and when it builds up and hardens it forms into tartar. This disease can be extremely painful and untreated it can recede the gums, affect bone structures and cause the loss of a tooth.

The early signs of gum disease include bleeding gums, receding gum line, bad breath or loose teeth. The more common form of gum disease is known as gingivitis which can be treated successfully but if left too long can develop into the more serious condition called periodontitis resulting in loss of teeth.

Gum disease prevention

At Clifton Dental Care we will always recommend regular dental hygiene check-ups (at least twice a year). By carrying out a simple maintenance programme at home, our dentists and hygienists will show you how to clean your teeth properly and maintain healthy gums during your visits. Dental prevention is better than cure and the most effective way to combat gum disease is to prevent it.
