Healthy Gums. Brighter Smiles.
Keeping your gums and the underlying bone healthy is essential to retaining your teeth and a confident smile. Gum disease is the most common reason for early tooth loss in adults in Scotland. And now there is a proven scientific link of gum disease and heart disease.
So if you notice blood on your tooth brush or when you spit after brushing, it could be the first signs of gum disease.
Otherwise, it can be a pain free disease with symptoms that include:
- swollen gums
- bleeding gums
- bad breath
- loose or mobile teeth
- drifting teeth
- tartar build-up
The good news is that it’s entirely preventable with good oral hygiene.
Ask your Lansdowne Dentist if you have any concerns for good advice, early treatment and a choice of solutions.
