Here at The Priors Dental Practice we have a specialist periodontist who can make sure you not only have a smile that looks great but that is healthy too. It is important to keep your gums healthy because conditions such as gingivitis and periodontal disease can be very serious and can lead to severe decay, pain in the gums and the formation of abscesses.

Good oral health

In order to enjoy good oral health and protect your teeth and gums, it is important to brush your teeth twice a day for at least two minutes at a time, floss and rinse using mouthwash regularly and visit your dentist at least once a year. Poor oral hygiene is the most common cause of periodontal disease and it can be easily avoided by simply spending a few minutes each day cleaning your teeth.

If you do suffer from problems with your gums, including bleeding gums, gum recession or soreness in the gums, our experienced dental hygienist can offer a range of treatments, as well as practical advice and tips on how to help improve the state of your gums. Here at the Priors Dental Practice, we’re pleased to offer our clients the latest in periodontal treatments including Florida probe Diagnostics, Bespoke periodontal programmes and Helbo Photodynamic Therapy.

If you have any questions about our specialist periodontist, oral hygiene, or gum problems, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
