Healthy teeth and gums are important throughout your life!
If gums and teeth are not properly maintained, gum disease such as Gingivitis can occur. Healthy gums are important for a healthy mouth and a healthy body. Gums, and the jawbone underneath, are very important for supporting and nourishing the teeth. Healthy gums also contribute to good looks. Gum disease changes the appearance of the mouth, can weaken the support for the teeth, and can affect general health. By arming yourself with the right dental products and by using them every day, having regular check-ups, and being aware of how your oral health relates to overall health, you’ll be well on your way to healthier teeth and gums – and a healthier you.
Gingivitis is a condition where plaque forms on your teeth and around the gum line. As a result, bacteria may develop and your gums become inflamed. This condition is painful and can also lead to more serious problems if it is not treated quickly. With regular dental care, the Dental on Park team can help you prevent the onset of gum diseases, such as gingivitis and periodontitis. At each regular thorough examination visit we will check your gums to make sure they are at their optimal health. Below is a video that further demonstrates how we do this at each examination appointment, as well as what possible problems can occur.
At Dental on Park, we are very luck to have a Hygienist, who has a variety of specialised tools, products and techniques, to clean your teeth and help you clean your teeth more efficiently if needed.
More teeth are lost through gum disease than tooth decay!
