Are you worried about gum disease?

Gum disease affects 80% of adults, more than half of all teenagers and is the single biggest cause of tooth loss.

Serious gum disease is linked to heart disease, strokes, diabetes, problems with
pregnancy and bacterial lung infections, among other serious illnesses. It is a good indicator that something is not well within your body, which is why it should never be ignored.

Gum Disease FAQ

Most frequent questions and answers

Healthy teeth rely on healthy gums for support. Gum disease causes sensitivity, pain, bleeding gums, puffy gums, infection and eventually loss of teeth. More teeth are lost through gum disease than through tooth decay.

Gum disease, also know as periodontal disease, is caused by plaque, a film of bacteria that forms on the surface of teeth on a daily basis. If plaque accumulates it becomes hard and forms calculus (tartar). The gums react to the build up of bacteria and become red, swollen and inflamed, and the bone which holds the teeth starts to become eroded. If left untreated your teeth will become loose and may be lost.

  • Gums bleeding when you brush or eat hard foods.
  • Bad breath or a bad taste in your mouth.
  • Gum recession (the teeth appear longer) with increased sensitivity to hot and cold
  • In the later stages of gum disease gaps may appear between your teeth, become loose and eventually be lost.

Your dentist will have referred you to a periodontist if they believe you have gum disease that requires treatment. You may also require implant placement.

A periodontist is a specialist who diagnoses, prevents and treats gum disease and has the expertise to provide treatment to help you keep your teeth for the long-term.

By thorough mechanical cleaning under the gums of the root surfaces to remove bacterial deposits causing the disease (also known as deep cleaning or debridement). This is usually conducted under local anaesthetic so you feel comfortable. During this phase you will be given instructions on how to clean more effectively around the teeth and gums using toothbrushes and interdental aids.

Advanced treatment with surgery can be undertaken to regenerate and replace lost bone and gum.

  • A discussion about your main concerns.
  • A thorough examination of your gums or implant site.This is not painful however you will be aware that detailed measurements are being taken.
  • Any necessary x-rays will be taken to complete the full examination.
  • Following the examination you will discuss the findings with Dr Auplish, who will tailor a treatment plan for your mouth and answer any questions.
  • You will receive a written report summarising the findings
