Why You Need Healthy Gums

Poor foundations result in loose teeth, red or swollen gums and bleeding when brushing which are all signs you have a form of gum disease (gingivitis).

When gingivitis is left untreated it can develop further into a type of infection known as periodontitis, which affects the entire area surrounding the tooth, which could result in losing the tooth.

Whilst it is important to have a regular home cleaning routine, it is highly recommended that you have regular hygiene therapy too. The hygienist uses special tools to clean below the gum line, a place that a toothbrush can’t reach. It is by deep cleaning the gums around the teeth that you will maintain healthy, strong teeth and reduce the risk of gum disease.

Dental tip to maintain good oral health at home! What you eat has a massive effect on your teeth. You should increase the amount of vegetables which contain healthy fibre. You should reduce the frequency of consumption of sugary and acidic foods and drinks. Sugar is converted into acid in the mouth which can then dissolve the enamel of your teeth. Acidic fruits, fruit teas and fizzy drinks can also erode tooth enamel so enjoy these things only in moderation. #dentaltips #dentists #dentalcare #healthyeating ... See MoreSee Less
