The effects of gum disease on your body and overall health

Everyone knows it’s important to take great care of your teeth and gums to get rid of bacteria and avoid cavities.  The majority of people also understand that to keep their mouth and teeth healthy, it is recommended to brush and use interdental cleaning (interdental brushes/floss) at least two times a day, avoid cavity-producing foods (such as sugary treats), avoiding smoking and visit their dentist regularly (we recommend at least every 6 months).

Gum Specialist

What is a gum specialist, and do I need to see one?

A gum specialist is a dentist who has undergone an immense amount of training in the field of periodontics (periodontology) which involves the study of gums and the supporting tissues around a tooth like the bone. In order to be called a specialist the dentist must be on the specialist registered list at the General Dental Council.
