Our Specialist Periodontists at Transform Smiles can help with severe Gum Disease to help save your teeth and protect your gums. 33% of tooth loss in the UK is a direct result of Gum Disease, which is a silent disease caused by bacteria living in your mouth and irritating the gums to make them bleed. Gum disease or periodontal disease can affect anyone, but some people are much more affected than others. The key to keeping gum disease at bay is to address how you look after your mouth. Having the right brushing and flossing techniques can have a massive impact at preventing and addressing gum disease.
If you have moderate to severe gum disease you may have tried your general hygienist first and then may have been referred to a specialist for more specialist treatment to help control your gum disease. Over 83% of the population have some form of gum disease so going to your dentist on a regular basis and seeing your hygienist is a great start to restore health. It is important to have good oral health so that any other investment you make into your teeth (i.e. dental implants) is protected and will have a long lasting effect to your smile.
Our Specialist Periodontist at Trasnform Smiles has over 25 years experience in treating gum disease. Our specialists are registered with the General Dental Council and bring a wealth of experience and knowledge of periodontal disease.
