concerned about losing your teeth due to gum disease?
We all want to keep our teeth for as long as possible, unfortunately gum disease is one of the major reasons we lose teeth as we age. Unlike tooth decay, gum disease is generally painless until the latter stages, when tooth loss becomes inevitable. Our Gum treatments will help prevent tooth loss and restore your oral health.
Gum disease, also know as Periodontitis, is caused by bacteria that live in our mouth, destroying the gum tissue and bone that helps support our teeth. If not treated, the bone is reduced until teeth start to become wobbly and eventually can lead to painful infections and ultimately fall out.
The most effective ways of preventing tooth loss through gum disease are by ensuring really effective daily cleaning habits and by regularly having your teeth professionally cleaned by our hygiene team. Our team tailor your brushing and flossing routine to best suit your needs.
We can assess your oral health and advise you on the best treatment options
If you have moderate to severe gum disease, it may be that a referral to a specialist dentist that focuses on a more specific way of controlling gum disease if required. At Newton Abbot Dental we have a Specialist Periodontist that is able to comprehensively examine the current health of your gums, and offer treatment solutions that will reduce the chance of experiencing pain or tooth loss.
