The importance of maintaining gum health is becoming more and more understood. Everything we ingest is coming through our mouth and picking up whatever is contained in there! Links are now being made between gum disease and Type II diabetes and heart disease.

What has long been understood is that gum disease can lead to tooth loss. At this stage patients then consider dentures or implants but we normally find that they regret not taking their gum health much more seriously.

Your dentists are trained in helping you to maintain healthy gums. Assisted by the Bewbush hygienists (and Specialists where required). Bleeding gums are NOT normal! This is just one sign that active steps are needed and we can provide advice and treatment.
