Preventative » Healthy Gums

Your gums are like cushions for your teeth. they surround the teeth in the jaws and help to support them. Looking after your gums is just as important as looking after your teeth. Red and swollen gums that bleed when you brush them could be a sign of gum disease, also known as gingivitis.

When gingivitis is left untreated it can develop further into a type of infection known as periodontitis, which affects the entire area surrounding the tooth. This may result in a loss of good teeth.

To keep your mouth in a good condition, we recommend you come in for regular hygiene appointments and dental check-ups.
