Gum disease is a silent killer – it doesn’t hurt and we only notice it when it is severe. It makes our teeth loose, gums bleed and shrink
But how did I get gum disease in the first place?
When bacteria have lingered around your teeth and gums for more than 24 hours, it starts to crawl inside our gums. As a result, our supporting gums and bone begin to shrink causing bleeding gums and loose teeth. At the severe stage, teeth will start to fall out.
How do I stop this from happening?
Firstly, look out for:
- Red puffy gums
- Bleeding gums
- Bad Breath
- Loose teeth
- Teeth looking longer over time
Secondly, as much as we brush and floss at home we can’t get to all the nooks and crooks around our teeth, especially inside our gums. That’s why we need to go to the dentist every 3-6 months (3 months for those with moderate-severe gum disease) for a clean using our latest technology of ultrasonic irrigation.
This is the periodontal gum treatment we provide for you!
Thirdly, you get your car serviced and your hair trimmed regularly – why not do the same with your teeth? We only have 1 set of adult teeth after all !
This is where Emily’s expertise as our Oral Health Therapist can help you!
