Gum disease is common for many patients all across the world

If you fear you are alone in suffering from a gum disease, fear not, as many patients worldwide have experienced a similar condition to you. In fact, many adults in the UK are also known to have been diagnosed with one form of gum disease or another and most people will experience it at least once during their lifetime.

Gingivitis is a common condition and this is primarily caused by a build-up of plaque bacteria that attaches onto your teeth. If the plaque is not removed and is left untreated, it may cause irritation in patients resulting in bleeding gums and feelings of discomfort and pain.

Early signs that you are experiencing gingivitis include swollen or painful gums, visible signs of blood after brushing your teeth, bad breath and even loose teeth.

Preventing the risk of experiencing gum disease is easy with the right care

It’s important to follow a strict oral hygiene routine as this goes a long way in reducing the risk of disease.

A few ways this can be achieved is by brushing your teeth both in the morning when you wake up and at night before bed. We highly recommend regular flossing as well to all our patients.

It’s important to seek out treatment as soon as you notice any of these unwanted symptoms. Book a visit with our dental hygienist who is happy to help remove plaque and treat gingivitis. Our periodontics Edinburgh expertise is on hand to assist you with treatment before it develops into something more serious.
