Preventative Dentistry

We all understand the importance of brushing our teeth regularly, but are we doing it right? Perfecting your brushing technique will put you on the right path to achieving and maintaining good oral health. . Small changes made when adopting a thorough cleaning technique into our daily lives will contribute to the prevention of dental complications in the future.  Our team of experienced dentists have undergone hundreds of hours of training and professional development to be able to share knowledge with you that may just be the difference between keeping or losing your teeth as you grow older.

Gum Disease

Gum disease is caused through a progressive buildup of plaque in the mouth, and although it is often simple to avoid, it is one of the most common reasons for tooth loss in the UK. The increased levels of plaque allow for tartar or a calculus to form where the tooth meets the gum.

Can I get rid of gum disease?
Gum disease can be treated fairly easily, however when tartar or calculus forms it is important to seek help and treatment from a dentist with a special interest in periodontics. One of our skilled dentists can work to remove the plaque, however depending on the development of the gum disease, you may need to have the tooth removed, although this is always the final resort for our team.

How do I prevent gum disease?
Gum disease is easily prevented by adopting good dental cleaning techniques, which our team can teach you in your appointment. The outcome may seem simple to avoid, however because the early signs of gum disease are not commonly recognisable to those who aren’t trained in dentistry, many people fail to treat the plaque in the early stages.

If you feel you may be suffering with gum disease please call New Road Dental at your earliest convenience.
