Gum Treatment

Although your dentist and hygienist routinely remove build up of tartar or plaque during your appointments, if you do not take care of your teeth you may develop gum disease. This can cause your gums to recede or pull away from your teeth leaving them weakened and at risk of falling out.
Swollen, sore or infected gums may be caused by gum disease or gingivitis. This is very common and is experienced to some degree by half the adult population. Bad breath and bleeding gums when you brush your teeth may indicate that you are at risk of developing gum disease.
When treated early with the removal of plaque and tartar and with thorough oral hygiene, most cases of gingivitis settle down and the gum returns to normal. But if it is left untreated, more serious problems can occur including the formation of a gum abscess, receding gums and loose teeth.
Some people are more vulnerable to the effects of plaque and tartar and the build up can cause pockets to develop around their teeth. These pockets are very difficult to clean so further plaque builds up inside them and the disease progresses.
