Gum Disease

Periodontal therapy is the treatment and prevention of gum disease

It is a well known fact that people should make regular visits to a dentist to ensure good dental hygiene and a healthy smile. By attending regularly, we will be able to identify any problems at an early stage and agree on the best treatment plan for you.

Gum Disease

Periodontal therapy is the treatment and prevention of gum disease, but what is gum disease?
Gum disease is caused by plaque, the sticky film of bacteria that is constantly forming on our teeth. This plaque builds up on and between teeth, irritating gums and making them swollen, if untreated.

When this swelling happens, it can allow a space or pocket to form beneath the tooth. As the amount of bacterial plaque increases, so does the depth of the pocket. This causes gums to recede, exposing more of the tooth. If left untreated, the pocket can become so large that teeth may loosen and even need to be removed.

There are so many diseases around the body which are connected to your dental health including:

  • Stroke.
  • Respiratory disease.
  • Heart disease.
  • Diabetes.
  • Ulcers.
  • Osteoporosis.
  • Arthritis.
