Great oral hygiene is hugely important in preventative dental care. While we can provide high-quality professional dentistry at iSmile Dental Clinic, it is essential to back this up with great dental care at home.
This is where we can help you and everyone here at iSmile is super-easy to chat to so please ask us if you feel your oral hygiene could do with a bit of help.
Redness , swelling, bleeding and bad smell can all be signs for gum disease (gingivitis). If you notice any discomfort or bleeding when you brush or floss it can be an indication of an underlying gum problem that needs to be addressed sooner than later to prevent it from getting worse.
If left untreated this gum disease can progress into a more aggressive form called (periodontitis). It is a deep infection inside the gum that eats the bone and the supporting tissues away and eventually causing tooth loss.
Our clinicians are very experienced in prevention, early detection and treatment of these gum diseases and can help you regaining your gum health and retaining your teeth for as long as possible.
Patient comfort is very important to us and that’s why we use the latest dental equipments which makes gum treatment a much more comfortable experience than before.
