Gum disease


We often hear the word gingivitis. Gingivitis is inflammation of the gums. The bacteria in the plaque cause an inflammatory response by your body. When you have gingivitis, the gums may be puffy and easily bleed e.g. during tooth brushing. Gingivitis may progress to periodontitis. This leads to recession of your gums and destruction of the bone around the roots of your teeth. Periodontitis is a serious condition. If it is not treated, the teeth may become so loose that they literally fall out. At Manly Smiles we treat gum disease by providing oral hygiene instruction and performing deep cleaning of the teeth to remove the calculus stuck at the bottom of your gum pockets.
