Ask any Manchester gum clinic and they'll tell you that gum disease (although one of the most common dental issues) is also one of the most preventable. On average gum clinics Manchester have to deal with hundreds of patients per week who suffer with gum problems. In fact you could say that the majority of people in the country will be affected at some point in their lives. However simply by attending regular visits to your gum clinic Manchester you can help to eradicate gum disease once and for all.
Gum disease comes in two stages. Firstly the early stage otherwise known as gingivitis. This is by far the most common form and is commonly characterised by swollen and bleeding gums. It's usually caused by a build up of plaque which then turns into calculus. Otherwise known as tartar this starts to attack the gum causing redness, bleeding, and swelling. The latter stage is known as periodontal disease and is an advanced form of gum disease which occurs when gum tissue becomes infected. Periodontal disease is more serious and can cause problems with the bone and undermine otherwise healthy teeth.
Treatment for the early stages of gum disease is relatively simple. Using a combination of scaling and root planing, otherwise known as a deep clean, your dentist or hygienist will aim to remove all of the offending tartar that's built up around the base of the tooth which is causing problems. Any infections may also be cured by taking a course of antibiotics. In worst case scenarios a Manchester gum clinic might have to remove a tooth that's been undermined by periodontal disease and a prosthetic tooth such as a bridge or dental implant put in it's place.
In essence, by practising three things:
As well as our hygiene treatments, we also offer surgical and non surgical treatment to help reduce dental pockets. For very advanced cases, we refer to our colleague Ian Dunn who is a specialist periodontist.
