Gum Disease

Big improvements in a short period of time

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.

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

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.

The team at New Road have always been amazing and accommodating to me and my whole family. More recently I used New Road Dentist for Invisalign and they were amazing. Ravi is always patient and respectful. His attention to detail is second to none and he is happy to take time to ensure I was happy at every stage. Scott was on hand all the time and a great asset to the team. He gave a level of care and service I don’t see offered anywhere else. Thanks all.
