Gum Disease 

Prevention

We know that most common dental disease can be prevented so avoiding the need for dental intervention. We therefore spend a lot of time helping you learn how to best prevent disease in your own mouth.

Gum disease can range from superficially bleeding gums to more advance loss of the tooth-support system (which includes bone around teeth). The latter is not an inevitable part of aging but is the result of accumulation of plaque (which contains bacteria) over years around the teeth. Good oral hygiene is the key to preventing this - and this includes cleaning between your teeth. There is no need or surgical intervention, and our treatment is minimally invasive and all evidence based.
