Gum Disease Liverpool – How to Conquer Gum Disease

Gum disease in Liverpool is one of the most common conditions that we treat at Scott Street Dental and yet it’s one of the easiest to prevent. Commonly referred to as gingivitis it’s caused by failing to brush your teeth and gums properly.

Gum disease Liverpool – What are the symptoms?

One of the first signs that you may have gum disease is blood left in the wash basin when you brush and rinse your teeth. You may also notice that your gums look redder than normal and feel sensitive to the touch. At this stage, you shouldn’t be too alarmed, as it can be easily reversed with help from your Liverpool dentist.

How have I got gum disease?

Liverpool patients aren’t always aware that they have gum disease since there is usually no pain. Gum disease is usually caused by plaque, the sticky colourless film which forms on our teeth and gums. If this isn’t removed with brushing and flossing then bacteria enter through the teeth and into the gums where they cause irritation and inflammation. Smoking is also a major contributor to gum disease.

What happens if gum disease is ignored?

If gingivitis is ignored then it will worsen and develop into periodontitis – full-blown gum disease. Liverpool patients should be aware that this affects both the gums and jawbone, causing bone erosion and possible tooth loss. Now for the good news ….

If your gum disease is more severe we may need to consider further gum disease treatments. Naturally, this will incur more dental visits and more costs, which is why we always emphasise the importance of regular six-monthly dental check-ups. Scaling and root planing can help rid your teeth of bacteria while fluoride gels and fissure sealants can protect against decay. Depending on the severity of your gum disease, our Liverpool dentists may have to resort to gum or bone surgery, and, in the event of tooth loss, dental implants.
