Gum Disease / Periodontitis

Gum Disease is the worst condition that can affect a persons mouth. 

If not identified and treated early it is the only disease of the mouth that can lead to complete Teeth and Bone loss meaning not only will you lose your teeth but you will also lose the Jaw Bone that holds the teeth in place, which unfortunately affects how well any dentures/implants fit.

It is also the only condition of the mouth which has a direct affect on our general health - university studies showing active gum disease has a negative affect on both cardiovascular health and diabetes. Research which has been championed by Europe's number 1 expert on gum disease Professor Iain Chapple from the University of Birmingham, who has provided many hours of teaching to our dental team.

It is important to note well treated gum disease can also have a positive affect on the condition of diabetes and cardiovascular health.

What does this mean?

Without healthy gums nothing in the mouth will last for more than a few months/years.

No matter how expensive the implants/crowns/veneers/bonding you have is , if you have undiagnosed/incorrectly managed gum disease this treatment will suffer and will not last.
