Preventative dental treatment

Gum Disease:
Do you know 84% of people aged 25 and over have gum disease and it remains the main cause of tooth loss in adults?

Gum disease (inflammation of the gums) is caused by sticky plaques of bacteria that grow on teeth and, when not removed by effective brushing and flossing, will harden and become tartar. This cannot be removed by brushing and causes inflammation of the surrounding tissues, which in advanced stages leads to loss of teeth.

At Start-Smiling our experienced Hygienists Alison and Natalie can help prevent this by careful removal of the tartar on the teeth. They can tailor an individual programme for you to maintain optimum gum health and also prevent bad breath often associated with gum disease.

More recently gum disease has been linked to other diseases in the body such as heart disease, diabetes, strokes and arthritis.

Dental Decay:
This sticky plaque is also responsible for turning sugary food you eat into an acid which eats away at your tooth causing decay which then requires a filling.

I am sure you can appreciate it is also important to visit your hygienist/therapist and dentist regularly. A simple routine of brushing and cleaning between your teeth and good eating habits can prevent most dental problems before they occur.

At Start-Smiling all our team can advise you on how to make small changes in your daily routine and this will make a big difference in the long run in preventing further gum disease or decay and maintaining your healthy smile.
