Gum Care At Perfect Smile Spa
Gum Disease Treatment And Gum Reshaping In Essex
Perfect Smile Spa is dedicated to all areas of oral care, including the care of an important but often overlooked part of smile health; the gums. As anchors for the teeth, and protectors of the sensitive nerves that sit beneath the gum line, the gums require special care and attention just like the teeth.
At Perfect Smile Spa we offer help with gum care and maintenance, including hygienist services and specialist periodontal services. Gum disease is a leading cause of tooth loss, and we want to ensure our patients don't suffer that fate and instead have the healthiest and happiest gums, supporting a beautiful smile. We also offer cosmetic treatment for gums that patients may feel overwhelm the look of their smile.
Our gum care services are extensive, professional and cutting edge, available in our professional and modern dental surgery in Essex.
Your Gums Are Really Important!
Often people think about their teeth when they think about the health and look of their smile. However, the gums and teeth are closely linked and are of equal importance. Your gums are made of soft tissue that supports and holds your teeth in place and they also protect the roots of your teeth from bacteria. If plaque is not removed from the teeth properly, bacteria and what it omits, can irritate the gums, which is the start of gum disease. If that condition is not treated, it progresses and gets worse, eventually destroying the gums, and the jawbone which holds the teeth.
Evidence also shows that gum disease may contribute to health issues elsewhere in the body. Issues like heart disease and lung infections could be caused by gum disease, along with other contributory factors. Effective gum care is an important part of general oral health and we are pleased to provide modern and efficient gum treatments at our Essex clinic.
