Did you know gum disease is a leading cause of tooth loss?
You may notice your gums bleeding whilst brushing or flossing your teeth, or have bad breath. Your gums may have receded making your teeth look longer which can lead to temperature sensitivity. In some cases your teeth might feel wobbly. If you have any of these signs you should contact your Smilepod dentist to check your gums.
Periodontitis refers to a number of inflammatory diseases affecting the tissues that surround and support the teeth. A diagnosis of periodontitis is established by inspecting the soft gum tissues around the teeth with a periodontal probe and by visual analysis of radiographs, to determine the amount of bone loss around the teeth.
