Gum Disease is caused by a build up of the bacteria which live in the plaque and tartar on your teeth. The harmful chemicals produced by the bacteria irritate your gums causing them to bleed.
If you don't remove plaque everyday, you may find that your gums become swollen and red and that they bleed easily when you brush your teeth.
As gum disease progresses, your gums may pull away from your teeth to form pockets or gaps between your teeth and gums. We call these gaps Periodontal Pockets.
As periodontal pockets can be very difficult to clean out properly, they tend to fill up with more plaque and tartar and become infected. Know about periodontic specialists.
If allowed to progress this infection spreads further causing your teeth to become loose. Therefore, regular removal of bacteria, plaque and tartar professionally by the hygienist & cosmetic dentist is essential to maintain healthy gums. Excellent home care is also vital.

My dental plan included quite intrusive treatment, all of which was carried out with concern for my comfort. Time was taken to insure that I was included in every decision to be made.
Everyone was very friendly and made me feel 'at home'. Thanks to the dentists at this amazing practice!!
