Our friendly dental oral health therapists are trained in helping your child through their first visit. We make a fuss of them, and the balloons and stickers don’t hurt either.
At Pearsall Dental Centre gum care is our top priority because your gums are the foundations for your teeth.
Periodontitis is a disease that occurs when bacterial toxins penetrate the gum line and cause inflammation of the gums, ligaments and the bone structure, which support teeth. Although the effects of this inflammation may be irreversible, the disease’s progress can be halted and controlled.
Because periodontitis may occur without visible symptoms, it is important for your dental professional to examine regularly for increased gum pocket depths, one of the earliest signs of the disease.
The mildest form of periodontal disease is gingivitis, which results in plaque build-up on tooth surfaces, between teeth and under the gum line. It causes the gums to become red, swollen and bleed.
Without proper attention, gingivitis will progress to periodontitis causing gum infection, decay and eventual loss of teeth.
Factors that contribute to gingivitis are:
- Genetic predisposition
- Poor nutrition
- Other illness
- General poor oral hygiene
In most cases, starting a daily tooth brushing and flossing routine can stop gingivitis in its tracks.
Our dentist will check the health of your gums at your next dental check-up. If you have red or irritated gums contact us to book an appointment as early as possible.
