Periodontal (gum) disease is the infection of gum tissue. This infection can lead to gingivitis from inflammation and/or periodontitis.
Removing plaque is critical in minimising or controlling gum disease to prevent the bacteria that hardens to tartar.
Good news! Gum disease is preventable and treatable. Regular hygiene visits and good brushing and flossing techniques at home will go a long way toward preventing gum disease.
If you are concerned that your gums need attention, enquire us today for more information or book an appointment.
Whilst bleeding gums are common, it is essential to check the cause to rule out any serious conditions.
In general, bleeding indicates that your gums are inflamed, and this inflammation generally responds to bacteria on the surface of your teeth. The surface inflammation is known as gingivitis but may also arise from an incorrect brushing technique, improper flossing, vitamin K deficiency and more.
