Do your gums bleed when you brush your teeth?
Bleeding gums and other gum problems are something we take very seriously here at DentalatMediaCityUK. Your gums are bone levels and the foundations of your teeth, and like a house if the foundations are not sturdy the teeth will become unsupported over time and fall out.

What is dental hygiene treatment?
Your dentist will clean your teeth thoroughly to remove the scale. You’ll also be shown how to remove plaque successfully yourself, cleaning all surfaces of your teeth thoroughly and effectively. This may take a number of sessions with the dentist or hygienist.
Dental hygiene treatment is delivered by a dental hygienist/dentist who will help to remove any plaque from your teeth that may have built up in certain areas. Your teeth will be professionally cleaned with special equipment and pastes, this process is also known as scaling and polishing. An important aspect of the hygienist’s role is to show you how to look after your teeth so they remain free from plaque. You will be advised on the best brushing technique and given tips on flossing and using inter-dental brushes.
Dental hygiene treatment at DentalatMediaCityUK also forms part of treating gum disease and bad breath. If you have a bridge, denture, orthodontic treatment or a dental implant you will have specific hygiene needs that the hygienist will be able to assist you with.
It is recommend that you come in for regular hygiene appointments to ensure your mouth stays clean and healthy.

An Apple a day keeps the dentist away... how true is that?
Good question... I can't say that statement is true these days. Fruit now a days is becoming increasingly sweeter due to genetic modification and though it is better than refined sugars, we would still recommend that you keep fruits to meal times where at all possible. If you do snack on fruits the the best thing to do is to rinse out with a fluoride based mouthwash or if nothing else some water to limit the damage from the sugars and the acidity.
What is the cause of gum disease?
All gum disease is caused by plaque. Plaque is a film of bacteria which forms on the surface of the teeth and gums every day. Many of the bacteria in plaque are completely harmless, but there are some that have been shown to be the main cause of gum disease. To prevent and treat gum disease, you need to make sure you remove all the plaque from your teeth every day. This is done by brushing and flossing. Flossing is a technique which many patients find very difficult to carry out on a daily basis. Our friendly Hygienist will help you find easy and time saving ways for you to maintain your teeth.
What happens if gum disease is not treated?
Unfortunately, gum disease progresses painlessly on the whole so that you do notice the damage it is doing. However, the bacteria are sometimes more active and this makes your gums sore. This can lead to gum abscesses, and pus may ooze from around the teeth. Over a number of years, the bone supporting the teeth can be lost. If the disease is left untreated for a long time, treatment can become more difficult.
