Gum disease treatment and prevention in Littleborough, Rochdale
Most people suffer from gum disease at some point in their lives. While it is preventable, it can lead to bleeding gums, bad breath and tooth loss if left untreated.
Gum disease is caused by an excessive build up of bacteria known as plaque, which then hardens to form tartar. This irritates the gums, making them inflamed and sore. This condition is called gingivitis and the most noticeable symptom is that your gums start to bleed when you brush your teeth.
Periodontal disease is more severe and occurs when the problems caused by gingivitis are allowed to develop. There are many types of periodontal disease but they all relate to the effectiveness of your tissue in supporting your teeth.
Good oral hygiene along with regular visits to the dentist will help prevent gum disease from developing. At MF Dental Care we can show you the best ways to take care of your gums and can detect and treat any potential problems.
