The gums are incredibly important when it comes to dental health, and if there's an issue with your gums, it can even threaten the health of your teeth.

Whenever you visit Romsey Dental for a check-up, your dental professional will inspect your gums just as much as they look at your teeth. If they spot any issues, they will let you know if it's something you can take care of at home with good hygiene, something they can help with in the dental practice, or something that you will need to see a dedicated periodontist to treat.

Whatever the case, periodontics can help you to keep your oral health in good shape, and avoid problems before they arise.

What causes periodontitis?

Periodontitis is the advanced form of gingivitis, a disease where your gums become infected. Gingivitis and periodontitis come from poor oral health, such as not brushing and flossing well or often enough, and consuming a diet high in sugary foods and drinks.

While gingivitis can be reversed with good oral health and a professional clean from your dental hygienist, periodontitis cannot be reversed. Once the disease has reachedthis stage, it becomes about managing the symptoms and stopping it from getting worse.

Come into our clinic for a check-up and we can screen you for various dental conditions you may think are minor but could cause issues in the future. We will show you how to protect and prevent gum disease.
