At Q1 Dental, we work to detect conditions and prevent problems as soon as they appear. Finding these problems early will save you a lot of money and hassle in the long run.
Gum disease is one of the most common causes of tooth loss in adults (not to mention bad breath and bleeding ). It is caused by bacteria collecting underneath the gum and weakening the structures that hold the gum on to the tooth and bone. Serious damage can be done before you notice any problems.
We can pick up early signs of gum disease and take simple steps to overcome the problem.
This might include removing the plaque and calculus that traps bacteria or showing you better brushing and flossing techniques. If left untreated, gum disease can be difficult and expensive to remedy.
Plaque builds up on everyone’s teeth. You can’t remove hardened plaque (also called tartar or calculus) with normal brushing. To keep your teeth clean and protected, we need to regularly remove this hardened plaque.
We recommend a half yearly teeth clean and check-up for patients not experiencing any discomfort or pain.
