Good oral hygiene is incredibly important for healthy gums and body. A thin layer of bacteria, biofilm that coats your teeth and gums, causes gum disease. It starts out as gingivitis, which can cause the gums to bleed and become red and inflamed. Most patients are not aware of the problem as it is not painful. If not addressed early, it can continue to progress and develop into more severe periodontal disease, in which pockets form between the gums and teeth and causes bone loss, recession and loss of healthy teeth.

Brushing twice daily and flossing can help patients, both young and old to maintain a beautiful, healthy smile.
Regular six monthly treatments by your Oral Hygienist will ensure that hidden and difficult-to-reach biofilm and tartar that causes rough surfaces is removed from your teeth to prevent gum disease.
