Caring for your gums is important because gum disease is the most common reason for tooth loss.

Your gums protect your teeth and hold them securely in place. Gum disease is commonly known as gingivitis and periodontitis. It can cause inflammation and discomfort in the gums. Those suffering from gingivitis may also find that their gums bleed when they brush their teeth.

If left untreated, gingivitis can progress to a more serious condition like periodontal diseases.

This advanced form of gum disease can lead to gum recession, damage to the underlying bone and, eventually, tooth loss.

Gum disease is caused by a layer of plaque underneath the lining of the gums, which is harder or sometimes impossible to reach while brushing. In time, this plaque mineralises and becomes tartar, which is even more challenging to remove at home.

To remove tartar build-up and control gum problems you can visit your dentist or dental hygienist for a scale and polish. This treatment involves removing the plaque and calculus away from under the gum line with special instruments.
