Swollen, bleeding gums are often the early signs of periodontal (gum) disease. This means that your gums are infected with bacteria, which if left untreated, could spread throughout your mouth, affecting the gums’ ability to keep teeth in place and strong. In time, it could mean teeth are lost, or have to be extracted.
Our periodontal treatments are designed to identify, prevent and minimise the effects of gum disease, to help patients enjoy a healthy mouth for years to come. Our dental hygiene team can work closely with you to deliver regular deep cleans to remove plaque, and help you understand the best techniques for cleaning your teeth at home, to help you minimise the risk of infection.
If a patient begins to experience the early signs of gum disease, speaking to your dentist as soon as possible is essential, as early treatment is the most effective. The earliest stage of periodontal disease is known as gingivitis, which can progress on to the more severe periodontitis if left untreated, where the teeth can start to loosen.
Your specialist dentist will work closely with you to build an individual care and treatment plan for periodontal disease, based on your individual requirements. We understand that gum disease doesn’t only mean you haven’t been cleaning your teeth properly, as research shows that many other factors can put some individuals more at risk, so please don’t be embarrassed to talk to us if you have any concerns.
