What is gingivitis?

When plaque builds up on your teeth it can lead to inflammation of the gums, and that is called gingivitis. You may not feel it at first, which is why you should have six-monthly check and clean visits; your dentist can identify gingivitis before you get symptoms and stop it from becoming periodontitis or periodontal disease.

What is periodontal disease?

If gingivitis is left untreated for too long it can become periodontal disease, or periodontitis. Periodontal disease creates pockets around the teeth, allowing bacteria to attack the jawbone. It is a severe gum infection that will eventually damage the bone. Periodontitis is the leading cause of tooth loss in adults.

Can gum disease be cured?

We can help you combat gingivitis by removing the plaque build-up around your teeth at six-monthly check and clean visits. If it has progressed, we can help you with a careful management plan.

What else causes gum disease?

Smoking, diabetes, birth control medication, pregnancy, steroids and anti-epilepsy drugs can all contribute to the development of gum disease. Old dental work and crooked teeth are also risk factors. But the main cause is poor oral hygiene - that is, not brushing and flossing daily, and not seeing the dentist every six months for a check and clean.
