Preventing Gum Disease

Did you know that around three quarters of those over thirty five years of age in the United Kingdom are currently suffering from gum disease in some form?  And did you know that gum disease is actually a greater cause of tooth loss than tooth decay itself?  Gums need to be taken care of just as much as teeth to make sure that you don’t suffer the pain and indignity of losing a tooth.

Types of gum disease

The most common type of gum disease is called gingivitis.  It is not serious in itself but, if left to progress, it can lead to worse problems.  Gingivitis is signified by reddening of the gums and sometimes bleeding during brushing and pain while eating.  It is easily avoided by pursuing the recommended routine of brushing and flossing twice a day, every day. Periodontitis is a more serious condition that can occur if gingivitis is not dealt with.  This is where the danger of tooth loss comes in as periodontitis is an extreme inflammation of the gums, which eventually leads to teeth becoming loose in their housings and falling out. You can be vigilant for signs of gum disease at home by looking for reddening to the gums and being aware of any pain you experience when eating.  Persistent breath or a metallic taste can indicate that gum disease is present.  In extreme cases, sudden weight loss or a feeling that your teeth don’t quite fit as well as they used to can mean that gum disease has taken hold.

Looking for a cosmetic dentist? Bristol dentists are here to help

Carry on with your routine of having your teeth checked by your Bristol dentist every six months.  This is the best way to guard against gum disease as they are trained to spot the early signs so that any problems can be dealt with early.
