WHEN GUM DISEASE IS MILD IT CAN BE TREATED WITH GOOD ORAL HYGIENE.

However, when gum disease is not treated correctly, it can lead to infection and further oral health issues like receding gums.

What is gum disease?

Gum disease is a silent condition that can affect the tissues around your gums. A lot of people are not aware that they have gum disease as sometimes the symptoms are very mild or not noticeable. This is why it’s important to visit our practice in Manchester for regular checkups. Our dentists will be able to notice the early signs of gum disease and be able to treat them straight away.

For severe cases of gum disease, avoiding treatment can lead to oral health issues like tooth loss and gum recession.

What causes gum disease?

Gum disease is mostly caused by the buildup of plaque around teeth that aren’t cleaned properly. If you wear braces or dentures, you may find it particularly difficult to clean those areas. Visiting our practice in Manchester for regular checkups and hygiene appointments can help to clean those difficult areas and prevent gum disease.

There are other things that can put you at risk of developing gum disease, such as smoking, having a weaker immune system, or having diabetes.

What are the symptoms of gum disease?

Although in mild cases of gum disease it may not be particularly noticeable that something is wrong, there are still some symptoms that you should look out for.

The following are all signs and symptoms of gum disease:

  • Bleeding gums
  • Bad breath
  • Loose teeth
  • Gum recession
  • Gum abscesses

What treatments are there for gum disease?

Controlling the amount of plaque and tartar that builds up in your teeth can help to treat gum disease. Keeping to a good oral hygiene routine at home can help to prevent buildup of plaque and tartar. This means cleaning twice a day, flossing, and always remembering to brush your tongue. Keeping to a simple routine can help to treat gum disease.

Booking an appointment with a hygienist for regular hygiene treatments will assist in the removal of plaque buildup. Make sure to visit your dentist for regular checkups so that they can monitor your oral health and notice when any issues begin to develop.

Lifestyle changes like quitting smoking can also help in preventing gum disease.
