Did you know that at least 97% of the UK population suffer from at least some level of gum disease? Gum disease is also the main cause of tooth loss in adults.
Caused by bacteria, this ‘silent disease’ irritates the gums and over time, can lead to degradation of the bone surrounding your teeth. Your gums will be prone to bleeding and eventually, your teeth will become loose. Many dental patients don’t even realise they have periodontal or gum disease as early symptoms are often painless.
