Gum Disease

Gum Disease

Experiencing sensitivity or pain in your gums? Bleeding gums that swell up and produce odour? It is very likely you’re suffering from gum disease. This is caused when plaque and tartar build up around your teeth specifically where the teeth and gum meet. The first stage of gum disease is known as gingivitis, and this is fully treatable when detected in the early stages

Results You Can Trust


Most major dental issues happen when minor dental issues get ignored. Our dental hygienists use specialised instruments to reach those inaccessible areas of your mouth. Usually done during your 6-monthly check-up, our dentists perform a comprehensive ‘scale and polish’ to clean and remove the tartar build up. If you maintain regular professional cleans, you can prevent gum disease from occurring. During the visit, our dentists will review your current brushing and flossing technique and provide you with advice.

If ignored

If gingivitis is ignored, the disease progresses into the second and more advanced stage of gum disease called Periodontitis. Periodontitis can lead to a wear down of the supporting bone structure of your teeth, at which point they might start falling off. Surgical intervention will be required, and once the disease hits your gums, it usually affects more than a few teeth.
