Gum disease prevention

Gum disease prevention at Ravenscourt Dental Practice

Bleeding during brushing or flossing is a sign that your gums are not healthy.

But sadly many people still ignore the warnings of inflamed and bleeding gums until it is too late.

In fact the problems of gum disease can be easily prevented by regular visits to your dentist and hygienist.  Ideally every three to four months, if you are susceptible to gum problems.

During each appointment your dental practitioner will conduct a detailed examination of your oral hygiene and keep gum disease at bay using the latest gum disease prevention techniques.

Using our holistic approach to treatment, our expert team will teach you to control your own dental hygiene by showing you the best brushing and flossing techniques.

Gum disease is not curable, but it is treatable, and in most cases, very controllable.  Ensuring diseases like diabetes are well controlled also helps as does giving up smoking.

A recent study published by Dr Luigi Nibali, our specialist Periodontist, shows how regular Periodontology & Hygienist visits help to significantly reduce tooth loss.
