Don’t let gum disease ruin your smile

Healthy gums are an important component of a healthy smile. In fact, healthy gums are also important to your overall health, since studies have shown that gum disease is connected to many conditions including diabetes and heart disease.

At Healthy Smile Centre, we know how to help you keep your gums healthy with the support of a dentist in Erskineville. Gum disease is a common oral condition, but the good news is that it is preventable. Simply stick to a thorough oral hygiene routine and visit the dentist in Erskineville at least twice a year. If you’ve experienced gum disease in the past, you may need to visit the dentist in Erskineville more frequently than that.

The inner workings of gum disease

Gum disease affects the tissues that help our teeth remain in place. It is developed in two stages – gingivitis (early stage) and periodontitis (late stage). Gingivitis is almost symptom-free and for this reason, it can go undetected for months before it becomes serious. Gum disease is caused by plaque, a sticky film that gradually develops over the teeth. Brushing and flossing can help keep plaque at bay, yet it is impossible to monitor plaque without the help of the dentist in Erskineville. Plaque has the ability to hide into the nooks and cracks of our teeth and these are places that cannot be reached by a regular toothbrush. Gum disease should be treated as soon as it is diagnosed. Fixing gingivitis is a lot cheaper than fixing the problem it can cause later on.

Is gum disease preventable?

Gum disease is highly preventable. Simply maintain a healthy diet, brush and floss your teeth per your dentist’s instructions and don’t forget to book an appointment for a check-up and cleaning every 6 months. These simple steps will save you from complex problems in the long run.

What if I already have gum disease?

If you're diagnosed with gum disease, you don’t need to worry. Your dentist in Erskineville will provide the best treatment possible. Depending on the type of gum disease you are suffering from we may recommend a routine or deep cleaning. Both treatments are simple and painless. If you suffer from periodontitis, corrective surgery may be required.
