Gum Disease

The two major causes of tooth loss in the UK are gum disease and tooth decay. In most people this can be prevented, providing you have the necessary support.

Here at Spicer Road Dental Practice your Dentist and Hygienist will work closely together with you so that you can be sure that your oral hygiene regime minimises your risk of gum disease and tooth decay.

As well as removing the causative factors associated with gum disease (plaque, calculus etc.), your Dentist and Hygienist will formulate an individual cleaning regime tailored to meet your specific needs.

75% of all teeth lost today are as a result of gum disease, remember that healthy gums DON’T BLEED. If you experience bleeding gums whilst brushing talk to your Dentist or Hygienist!

A clean and healthy mouth will improve your appearance and self-confidence, help you keep your teeth, give you fresh breath and help prevent life-threatening diseases such as heart disease, strokes and diabetes.
