Help me keep my mouth healthy » Great Gum Health

Achieving great gum health takes a joint effort between you and your dental team at Smile Essential in Leicester. Screening for gum disease forms an integral part of your regular dental health examination at Smile Essential.

We have qualified Oral Health Educators who can offer guidance on dental hygiene and how best to clean your teeth and gums between visits by using the correct brushes and techniques. They will also show you any areas you may be missing. Brushing between your teeth, flossing and replacing your toothbrush every three months will also benefit your gum health.

The benefits of great gum health

Maintaining a comfortable and healthy mouth will significantly reduce your need for dental treatment in the long term. Gum therapy in Leicester not only treats existing disease but also prevents it from taking hold in the future.

  • Minimised risk of tooth loss
  • Reduced risk of developing tooth decay and need for fillings
  • Minty fresh breath
  • Better overall health and wellbeing

A healthy mouth signifies a healthy body and several serious medical conditions, such as arthritis, heart disease, strokes, diabetes, dementia and premature births have been linked to gum disease by many research studies.

Your gums are like cushions for your teeth; they surround the tooth from its crown to its root in the jaw and help to support a healthy mouth. Looking after your gums is just as important as looking after your teeth, and without routine cleaning gum disease can occur.

The stages of gum disease

1
Gingivitis-This is when the gums around the teeth become red and swollen. The swollen gums will often bleed when you brush them and is one of the first signs of gingivitis.
2
When gingivitis is left untreated or is longstanding in nature it can develop further into a type of infection known as periodontitis, which affects the entire area surrounding the tooth, causing discomfort and difficulty when eating. There are a number of types of periodontal disease and they all affect the tissues supporting the teeth.
3
Eventually, as the disease gets worse the bone anchoring the teeth in the jaw is lost, making the teeth loose. If this is not treated, the teeth may eventually fall out and may require invasive procedures to replace the missing tooth.

Fortunately, this can be avoided by visiting Smile Essential for regular dental health examinations and maintaining a good daily hygiene routine.
