Treating gum disease in Puresmile Dental Care, London.

Approximately a third of the population have chronic bad breath and just over two thirds of the population notice it on other people. The majority of cases of bad breath begin in the mouth and not in the stomach. Bad breath can be as a result of gum disease and some of the build up around the teeth that may not be removed by brushing alone. Another sign of this is bleeding of the gums, which is a sign that the gums may be infected or inflamed.

Periodontal disease occurs when the space between the teeth and the bones starts to increase and sometimes this can result in the bone breaking down. Eventually the teeth can become loose and may need to be removed.

Periodontal and gum disease can be controlled through brushing and cleaning between the teeth and in some cases this requires additional assistance from a dental professional. Your dentist will discuss this with you in more detail and explain how this can be treated if you are suffering from this.

    • "Just got back from my treatment at the surgery and apart from being very numb, im extremely satisfied with the whole team. My dentist was very clam and gently with their work. Informing me of what they were doing as they worked in my teeth. Furthermore the treatment they have done feels good. The receptionist that I dealt with were friendly and helpful. One of the best dental surgeries I have been too."
    • "I had tried to have a tooth removed from another dentist but it was too painful and the dentist there seemed annoyed with me. So, it was a complete pleasure and surprise to be treated so well at this practice by the dentist. I was put at ease, it didn’t feel rushed and the dentist took great care to avoid any pain or distress. The tooth was safely removed. I will definitely go back. Highly recommended."
