The Health Of Your Gums Is Critical In Oral Health

Gum health is crucial for overall oral health. If you notice inflammation, tenderness, or bleeding while brushing, you may have gum disease. It's often unnoticed because it's painless and doesn't affect daily life.


However, if left untreated, it can lead to serious consequences, including damage to the bone and tissue supporting the teeth, which can result in tooth loss.

Periodontics Explained

Understanding Gum Health

Periodontics focuses on the health of the gums and the underlying structures that support the teeth. Gum disease typically progresses in two stages: gingivitis, which involves mild inflammation and irritation of the gums, and periodontitis, which can lead to premature tooth loss.

Linking Gum Disease to Overall Health

It's estimated that more than 45% of adults in the UK have some form of gum disease. What many people may not realize is that gum disease is linked to an increased risk of other health conditions such as diabetes, heart disease, and Alzheimer's disease, among others.

Proactive Periodontal Care

Early intervention with proper hygiene and periodontal care can reduce the risk of complications. Our team at Tomas Dental Clinic is highly skilled and knowledgeable in periodontics, ensuring that your oral health is well taken care of.
