Did you know Gum Disease is the most common cause of tooth loss in adults?
Periodontal Disease (or Gum Disease) is an inflammatory disease which 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.

What are Periodontal Disease symptoms?
- 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- Gums that have withdrawn from teeth and in between teeth
What will it do if it's left untreated?
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 the teeth.
This movement creates pockets in between teeth and gums, which eventually fill with plaque and cause deterioration.
The diagnosis of Periodontal Disease can be made through an oral examination with us. Within this consultation radiographs would be taken and the depth of the gum pockets measured.
