As part of your dental check ups with us we always check to see how healthy your gums are. Your gums form the foundation for your teeth and if they are unhealthy then it can lead to gum disease. Sometime you can get a build up of tartar around your teeth which can cause a chronic irritation to your gums. Also certain bacteria can start growing under your gums making them weaker. This can cause bad breath and bleedings gums and if untreated can eventually lead to your teeth becoming loose. Also some people are more likely to suffer from gum problems than others.
Gum disease is the main reason that people lose their teeth in Glasgow.
It is important that you visit us regularly for dental check ups so that we can assess the health of your gums as well as the rest of your mouth. Most people would benefit from a professional and thorough cleaning from the dentist once every 6 months. Some people who are at a higher risk of gum problems may need to have a dental hygiene visit more often.
