PERIODONTAL DISEASE
  Periodontal Disease (or Gum Disease) is the most common cause of tooth loss in adults. This inflammatory Disease attacks the gums, bones and other supporting structures of the teeth. Although Periodontal Disease is a serious condition, it can be resolved through proper dental care and good oral hygiene techniques.

Periodontal Disease is the result of plaque (colourless bacteria that forms on teeth). If plaque is not brushed away, gums begin to slip downward away from teeth. This movement creates pockets in between teeth and gums, which eventually fill with plaque and cause deterioration.

Symptoms of Periodontal Disease include;
" Bleeding gums whilst brushing or flossing your teeth
" Pain while chewing
" Red, sore, swollen gums
" Build up of calculus (tartar)
" Bad breath or bad taste
" Loss of teeth
" Teeth sensitivity to hot and cold
" Changes in bite
" Gums that have withdrawn from teeth and in between teeth

The diagnosis of Periodontal Disease can be made through an oral examination with us. Within this consultation x-rays would be taken and the depth of the gum pockets measured.
