Gum disease is the biggest cause of tooth loss. This is why, here at Belhaven we pride ourselves in excellent gum care. Visit one of our dedicated hygienists for a thorough assessment of your oral hygiene routine; let them show you how it can be improved and how to avoid the devastating effects of gum disease. Treatment for gum disease or hygiene treatment is available both on the NHS and privately.
Gum disease is often hereditary, did your mother or father have ‘pyorea’ or lose all their teeth at a very young age? Oral hygiene and smoking are also major factors in the cause of gum disease. Don’t hesitate to get this checked out and prolong your natural teeth for life.
