Gum disease often starts as a silent disease and causes up to one third of adult tooth loss in the UK. It is caused by bacteria which lives in your mouth irritating the gums and causing them to bleed. Gum disease or periodontal disease can affect anyone, but some people are much more affected than others. The key to keeping gum disease at bay is to address how you look after your mouth. Having the right brushing and flossing techniques can have a massive impact at preventing and addressing gum disease.
If you have moderate to severe gum disease you maybe referred to a specialist for detailed treatment of your teeth and gums to help control the bacteria that cause gum disease. Please don’t worry, over 83% of the population have some form of gum disease and the great news is you have come to the right place.
