Gum Disease

Diagnosis and treatment of gum disease, Abbey Road Dental in St John's Wood

Periodontal disease and treatment

Often painless gum disease can remain symptomless or you may notice bleeding gums, bad breath, gum recession, swollen gums and sensitive teeth. Thousands of bacteria live in our mouths. Most are harmless, but the harmful ones release toxins which cause damage to the supporting structures of our teeth.

Following a comprehensive dental examination our dental hygienist can provide treatment, whether that be maintenance scaling and polishing or specific periodontal therapy; treatment to remove the bacteria and toxins causing gum infection and damage. Gum disease is highly complex and progressive. Left untreated can lead to tooth loss . We consider you dental hygiene appointments to be as important as your dental examination and screening.
