GUM DISEASE TREATMENT IN HORNCHURCH, ESSEX
What is gum disease?
Gum disease is also known as periodontal disease.
A build-up of plaque, or if you are a smoker, can cause the gums to become red, swollen and inflamed. This can lead to the gums and bone, which holds the teeth to start to recede.
If gum disease if left untreated, your teeth are likely to become loose and may be lost.
Signs of gum disease
Bleeding gums especially when you brush or eat hard foods.
Bad taste in your mouth and bad breath
Your gums may recede making your teeth appear longer and become sensitive to hot and cold
Later on, gaps may appear in between the teeth and your teeth may become loose leading to your teeth being lost
How do we treat your gum disease?
Our dentists and hygienists are happy to help treat your gum disease (periodontal disease) at Best Health Clinics.
We will carry our deep cleaning under your gums along the root surface, to remove the bacterial deposits causing the gum disease. This is called Root Surface Debridement.
We can use a local anaesthetic so you feel comfortable during the procedure.
You will be given instructions on how to clean more effectively around the teeth and gums using toothbrushes and interdental brushes.
