At Thurloe Street Dental and Implant Centre we will always take the necessary steps to look after your gums and we regularly educate our patients on the importance of maintaining their gum health.
Poor oral hygiene can lead to a build-up of plaque on the gums, resulting in infection, receding gums and ultimately the loosening of your teeth.
Early signs of gum disease include bleeding, inflammation and redness. They can progress to periodontitis which is a more serious stage of gum disease.
Research has shown that gum disease is more prevalent in people who are on certain medications, smoke or are suffering from diseases such as diabetes.
Stopping harmful habits such as smoking or chewing tobacco is imperative to preserving the health of your gums.
It is important to treat signs of periodontitis to protect the gums and jaw bone, as these are the two main supportive structures of your teeth.
If you are experiencing signs of gum disease which is not improving with home care, please click here or call 020 7584 5551 to book your appointment now.
