Gum Disease Treatment
in Selby

Gum disease, also known as periodontal disease, is the most common cause of adult tooth loss in the UK. It is caused when plaque is allowed to build-up on the surface of teeth. If left to develop this will eventually form tartar, which can lead to damage of the gums. Gum disease can cause sensitivity, infection, severe pain and bone erosion.

The advantages of receiving periodontal treatment

  • Periodontal treatment will greatly improve gum health
  • Well looked after gums are vital for strong and healthy teeth
  • Gum disease can lead to tooth loss if left untreated
  • Gums that are healthy are more attractive than those in poor condition

Early signs of gum disease

An effective oral hygiene routine can help keep gum disease at bay, though you may experience signs of it at some point. Understanding early warning signs will enable you take action before the problem is allowed to develop. If you are experiencing any of the following, you may need treatment. We strongly advise talking to one of our dentists as soon as possible.

Treatment of gum disease

Gum disease can be treated in a number of different ways depending on how advanced the condition is. Your dentist will carry out a detailed examination (including x-rays if necessary) before talking through any treatment with you. The effects of gum disease can be repaired but this shouldn’t deter you from seeking advice and treatment if you experience any symptoms.
