Keeping your Gum's Healthy!

Periodontal Treatments

If you have been told you have periodontal (gum) disease, you’re not alone. Many adults in the UK currently have some form of the disease.

Periodontal diseases range from simple gum inflammation to serious disease that results in major damage to the soft tissue and bone that support the teeth. In the worst cases, teeth are lost.

Whether your gum disease is stopped, slowed, or gets worse depends a great deal on how well you care for your teeth and gums every day, from this point forward.

What causes Gum Disease?

Our mouths are full of bacteria. These bacteria, along with mucus and other particles, constantly form a sticky, colorless “plaque” on teeth. Brushing and flossing help get rid of plaque. Plaque that is not removed can harden and form “tartar” that brushing doesn’t clean. Only a professional cleaning by a dentist or dental hygienist can remove tartar.

Gingivitis

The longer plaque and tartar are on teeth, the more harmful they become. The bacteria cause inflammation of the gums that is called “gingivitis.” In gingivitis, the gums become red, swollen and can bleed easily. Gingivitis is a mild form of gum disease that can usually be reversed with daily brushing and flossing, and regular cleaning by a dentist or dental hygienist. This form of gum disease does not include any loss of bone and tissue that hold teeth in place.

Periodontal Treatments

When gingivitis is not treated, it can advance to “periodontitis” (which means “inflammation around the tooth”).

In periodontitis, gums pull away from the teeth and form spaces (called “pockets”) that become infected. The body’s immune system fights the bacteria as the plaque spreads and grows below the gum line. Bacterial toxins and the body’s natural response to infection start to break down the bone and connective tissue that hold teeth in place. If not treated, the bones, gums, and tissue that support the teeth are destroyed. The teeth may eventually become loose and have to be removed.

"My experience with Rock dates back to 6th April 2010. Since that time I have very much appreciated improved dental health due in my humble opinion to the regular (3/6 month) treatments by my dentist and very professional hygienist".

"Recently, I have had a new upper denture fitted as it was giving me trouble beforehand. In the event, when the new denture was fitted , I was pleasantly surprised at how quickly and without endless modifications, that it had become comfortable. That experience to me was confirmation that my overall dental health was in safe hands. Thanks very much"

Please tell us about your experience with us...

"Having had bad dental experiences since a child, I was nervous about every visiting a dentist again. Having seen an advert 'Nervous Patients Welcome' I plucked up the courage and called. Once I managed to get myself to the surgery Dr Anoup and his team worked hard to provide 1-2-1 comfort and help me to relax. It took a number of visits before I felt at ease as I was embarrassed by the look and condition of my teeth but now I no longer dread my dental visit. After intrusive work with implants I smile with confidents as much as possible. So glad I visited Rock".
