Gum disease is one of the leading causes of tooth loss. It occurs due to a build-up of plaque bacteria underneath the gums. These deposits can be challenging to remove with brushing at home, so regular visits to a dental hygienist are crucial.
If you are suffering from gum disease, you may experience discomfort, bleeding when you brush, or persistent bad breath. Your hygienist will examine you for any signs of gum disease mention any symptoms you have noticed.
A hygienist can carry out professional cleaning procedures to help prevent or reverse the effects of gum disease. A scale and polish treatment involves removing plaque and tartar from stubborn areas, including beneath the gum line.
Left untreated, gum disease can cause long-lasting damage to your teeth, gums, and jaw. However, in its early stages, many cases can be treated easily with professional care from a dental hygienist.
We recommend you visit Elm House every 6 months for routine dental cleaning to help you combat tooth decay and gum disease. Contact Elm House on 020 8520 7117 to book your hygiene appointment.
Very pleased with Elm Dental Surgery! For over 10 years - excellent care. Professional and Friendly
I've been scared of the dentist for a very long time, but toothache forced me to make an appointment. A friend recommended Elm House to me and I'm so glad she did. The dentist I saw today was so patient and kind, explaining everything perfectly. Actually all the staff were great, including the receptionists. I will definitely go back and I will be recommending to my friends and family. Thank you Elm House, my faith has been restored.
