Got swollen, puffy, or bleeding gums? Maybe you have consistently bad breath or experience pain when chewing.
It could be gum disease.
Here at Bow Lane, our specialist periodontists in London are the ideal team to help get your oral health back under control, reducing the risk of tooth loss further down the line.
Gum disease – also known as gingivitis – has many different causes, and many factors can increase the risk of developing it, including:
- Poor oral hygiene habits
- Hormonal changes – most commonly associated with pregnancy or menopause
- Smoking or chewing tobacco and recreational drug use
- Vitamin deficiencies
- Certain diseases – like diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, and Crohn’s disease
It’s nothing to be embarrassed about, and if you’re suffering from gum disease, you aren’t alone.90% of adults in the UK have gum disease, even if only a small amount. The good news is that, with a proper treatment plan, we can stop gum disease in its tracks – and, in some cases, reverse the damage altogether!
