Gum disease can be a silent affliction and without regular checks and treatment, the damage may already be done by the time a trip to the dentists becomes an absolute necessity.
Gum health is something we should all pay great attention to. Although cleaning our teeth twice a day should be a relatively straightforward task, there are all kinds of reasons why we sometimes forget to brush our teeth. Failing to care for your gums on an on-going basis can cause gum disease, which leads to tooth loss and other serious problems.
Gum disease is the single biggest cause of tooth loss in adults, so it’s hugely important to look after your gums, and seek expert treatment if you do notice any problems.
