Your gums form the foundations for your teeth much like the foundations of a house. If a house has weak foundations then it will sink into the ground and will collapse over time. If your gums are unhealthy and weak then your teeth will become loose and will fall out over time. With Gum disease there is no pain and sometimes the signs or symptoms may be overlooked so gum disease may progress quite far until it is recognised. Unfortunately it is not possible to revers gum disease or the damage it causes to the gums and so early detection and prevention is vital to ensure the continuing health of your mouth.

It is important to visit us regularly (normally every 6 months) so that we can check the health of your gums and clean them as required. Along with this regular cleaning at home is probably the most important factor in keeping your gums and teeth healthy. We would recommend that you normally brush your teeth at least twice every day and also clean in between your teeth daily either with dental floss or interdental brushes.

Some of the signs of gum disease are: bleeding gums, bad breath, a build up of yellow or brown tartar around your gums; later signs may be pain and loose teeth. If you have any of these signs then you should visit a dentist as soon as possible to have them investigate. If you would like to visit us then please contact us on 0141 641 2107.
