Gum disease is a very serious infection. There is an increasing link between gum disease and systemic diseases. The process often has very few symptoms until the final stages of the disease. The more common warning signs are bleeding gums, bad breath and loose teeth.
Bacteria, which are found in your plaque and tartar, release toxins which damage the bone which holds your teeth securely in place. It is this damage and subsequent destruction of bone which causes teeth to loosen. You can find more information on our video site
When treated early, the amount of destruction can often be limited. We also offer laser assisted gum therapy. We are having outstanding success with this advanced treatment, and are now able to keep teeth for much longer which previously would have probably been lost due to the disease.
