Did you know: more teeth are lost from gum disease than tooth decay?

It’s said that more teeth are lost from gum disease than from being decayed!

With this in mind, you must look after your teeth AND gums to ensure complete oral health.

Reason? If PLAQUE is not removed from your teeth and your gums aren’t cleaned at the same time, GUMS become inflamed and infected. This can then progress to gum disease (periodontal disease) and the ligaments that hold your teeth in place are weakened with the result of wobbly loose teeth and ultimately -teeth fall out.

How to prevent this? Pretty simple really:

  • Brush twice a day especially before bed
  • Use a fluoride toothpaste
  • STOP smoking – yes its a main cause because it affects blood supply to the gums
  • Reduce sugary snacks and drinks
  • Visit your dentist regularly – you may not even realise you have a problem especially if your brushing technique isn’t quite right
  • Visit the hygienist for expert cleaning

We want to help our patients achieve healthy teeth and gums, and you can always contact us for further advice.
