Many people feel that good teeth equals good oral health but healthy gum is also very important. The gum is a keen to the foundation to a house, a weak foundation is like a tooth with gum disease. Healthy gums means sound solid teeth. Poor gum health can lead to bone loss and may lead to tooth loss. As gum disease is a slow chronic disease, many of the more significant signs and symptoms of gum disease will only show up later in life. Good gum health starts with regular dental check ups and cleans.
We recommend regular gum pocket checks to detect gum disease. This is done with a periodontal probe which is a device with markings on it and is placed on 6 positions around a tooth. Teeth with deep periodontal pockets will often require deep cleaning to resolve the gum infection. With a thorough deep clean, we can prevent further bone loss around your teeth and reduce the deep pockets so your gum can regain its health
