Suffering from gum disease? Bristol dentist has the treatment

Gum disease is something that can affect anyone at any age. In its most common form it is nothing serious but it should be dealt with so that it doesn’t progress into something much worse. Having a good relationship with your dentist is vital in guarding against gum disease so that your mouth is regularly examined and monitored. Gingivitis is the most basic form of gum disease and many people in Britain have and do suffer from it. As a result of a build of plaque on the gum line of teeth, the gums redden somewhat and become more sensitive and prone to bleed. Bad breath might occur, as well as the presence of odd tastes in the mouth. If it is allowed to progress then periodontitis might take hold. In this case, the jaw bone holding the teeth becomes inflamed and tooth loss is the likely end result. Many of the symptoms of periodontitis such as receding gums are effectively irreversible, so it is best to deal with any gum issues you have before it gets to this stage. Often combatting gingivitis is simply a case of tightening up your home oral hygiene routine. By brushing thoroughly at least twice a day for about three minutes you should remove most of the plaque from the gum line. Flossing plays a crucial part in this too as plaque can form between the teeth against the gums and is often missed by brushing alone. Your dentist might suggest that you use a special mouth wash designed to look after gums or that you try a herbal solution like chewing cloves. Your dentist might offer you a professional clean if tartar is beginning to take hold. Talk to your Bristol dentist at your next appointment to find out how to avoid gum disease.
