Preventing and treating Gum Disease

Gum disease is one of the most common reasons for tooth loss in the UK.  It is caused by bacteria which lives in your mouth irritating the gums and causing them to bleed and is often referred to as the silent disease because it is painless.

Gum disease or periodontal disease can effect anyone, but some individuals are more susceptible than others.  Having the right brushing and flossing techniques can have a massive impact at preventing and addressing gum disease as it all begins with the build-up of tartar and calculus.

At The Essex Smile Centre we’re dedicated to providing the very best treatment to those suffering from gum and periodontal disease.  We can treat periodontal (gum) problems, gum inflammation, infection and build-up of plaque and tartar.

Treating the onset of gum disease before it develops, is the main priority.  In general treatment is quick and easy.  However, if the infection is more advanced more extensive treatment may be necessary.

We would advise anyone with the following symptoms to book an appointment with us.

  • Red or swollen gums
  • Gums bleed when brushing or flossing
  • Receding gum line
  • Persistent bad breath or bad taste in the mouth
  • Adult teeth that are loose and move

Left untreated gum disease will inevitably result in the loss of teeth, so if you are conscious that you may have gum disease please contact us and book an appointment.

Testimonial

“Last year following many consolations with Mr Declan Keane, I plucked up the courage to have twenty teeth veneered. At all times during this lengthy process it was carefully explained to me in a reassuring professional manner what to expect – THE RESULTS ARE STAGGERING and I am so pleased I had it done.” – Sylvia
