To keep the foundation strong
Contrary to popular belief, a great smile does not only need good teeth, healthy gums are also equally important to keep your smile youthful and attractive.
Gums are the foundation of teeth and unfortunately are also a perfect breeding ground for bacteria. If bacteria are not kept removed regularly, it leads to gingivitis and periodontitis, which are reversible and irreversible gum diseases respectively.
Gum disease can lead to bad breath, bleeding and shrinking gums, looseness and falling of teeth and can ruin a good smile. As research on gum disease advances, we know that chronic gum disease increases the risks of many medical problems such as diabetes and cardiovascular disease. Certain conditions such as pregnancy and diabetes, and habit such as smoking are known to increase the risk of developing more severe gum disease. Therefore, early detection and regular prompt treatment is vital.
At Dental Logic, we have a dedicated hygiene department focusing on ongoing gum care. Our dentists and oral health therapist can assess the severity of gum disease and provide professional cleaning and debridement treatment. We build a gum care plan with you and provide home care advice that is tailored to your needs.
