  • Gum Treatement/ Periodontics

    Gum Treatement , Periodontics

    The most common form of tooth loss is gum disease. Gum disease can be divided into two different categories – gingivitis and periodontitis. Gingivitis literally means "swelling of the gums" and refers to the earliest form of gum disease where plaque bacteria in the mouth builds up and causes redness, swelling and sensitivity of the gums. Periodontitis is more serious and this term is used to describe gingivitis that has got increasingly worse to the point of it affecting the bone and tissue that connects the tooth to the gum. Periodontitis causes a gap between the tooth and the gum which dentists call a 'pocket'. If the condition gets worse, the pocket can increase to the point of the tooth loosening and eventually falling out completely.

    How do I protect myself from gum disease?

    The most important factor in the prevention of gum disease is to brush your teeth regularly with a good toothpaste brand. We recommend you brush twice a day - once in the morning, and once before you sleep. Using dental floss to clean between teeth is also highly advisable as it removes the invisible plaque from in between teeth.

    What do I do if I have gum trouble?

    A beautiful smile is based on healthy teeth and gums and, quite frankly, it is pointless to undertake restorative or cosmetic dental work on a patient with any form of gum disease. The best thing to do if you think you are suffering from any form of gum disease is to book a hygiene appointment at Sensura Dental on 01753 864 216. If, however your condition is particularly difficult to treat and a thorough scaling and improved oral hygiene do not remove the infection, it may be necessary to undergo other more extensive treatments in order to save the teeth.

    Why do I have bad breath?

    Bad breath is a very common feature of gum disease. It is caused by the build-up of bacteria on the tongue, teeth, gums and soft tissues producing sulphur compounds. Bad breath can be an embarrassing and irritating symptom of gum-related problems but can be easily treated
