Prevention of Gum Disease

Early Gum disease                     ( Gingivitis- red painful,swollen gums that bleed when brushing) can be prevented with a good Oral Hygiene Routine. This typically is using either an electric or manual toothbrush for a minimum of 2 minutes twice a day plus some form of additional aid to clean in between the teeth. Our  Hygienist can remove early deposits of hardened plaque known as calculus and advise on the best techniques however regular visits  for a scale and polish are also essential to help monitor & maintain healthy gums.
