Gum disease- the evil that rears its ugly head throughout Swindon day after day. It generally comes from the way you look after your teeth at home: do it well with all the best products that are out there and yippee, you’ll be well on your way to caring for your teeth, but be warned, slip up and you will be opening a portal to hell in your mouth. Gum disease can be a bitch of a problem to fight and even harder to recover from if it gets its feet under the table- and you should be aware of the danger signs such as bleeding or weeping gums. If you are suffering from this then get your butt down to the dentist as soon as you can. Good oral hygiene is a way to navigate such turbulent seas and make sure that that your teeth are free and clean from the threat of bacteria. It may also take a big change in the way you go about your ways with your diet- cut out the exuberances and give you mouth a chance to breathe. And then, throw anything herbal at it because you put the zest back into your gums. But here’s another warning: gum disease can not only threaten the health of your mouth and cause your teeth to fall out, but it can also cause the heart, and other organs to fail in the long term in your body if allowed to run riot.
