Have you got the wobble? Could it be your gums? Get them treated!
If you have reddened gums, bleeding gums, bad breath or sensitive teeth, it may be that you are among approximately 45 adults in 100 that suffer from gum disease. Periodontal disease or gum disease is the bacterial infection of the part of the tooth that supports the gum.
Regular cleaning helps to control plaque but routine check-ups at the dentist ensure proper long-term control. Gum disease is usually painless so without a professional dental examination it carries a high risk of being detected late and is a major cause of tooth loss and decay. As periodontal disease is not visible to the naked eye, your dentist will have examined your gums and may have found evidence of gum disease.
At Dentabrite Clinic we believe that every tooth matters and we have recently introduced a new product called Perio Chip which has been effective in controlling gum disease PerioChip helps to reduce the depth of your periodontal pockets over time. Together with good dental hygiene, PerioChip has been proven to reduce the risk of tooth loss.

Regular visits to the dentist is an important part of keeping teeth and gums healthy. During your hygiene visit, our dentists will ensure that teeth and gums are thoroughly checked. You will be offered a scale and polish to remove any traces of plaque and hard tartar that cannot be removed by normal everyday brushing. Polishing the teeth helps to clean and remove stains caused by smoking, red wine, coffee, tea or spicy foods. We can also offer you solutions for bad breath. In addition we check for mouth cancer by examining your whole mouth and neck area.
The frequency and intervals of your appointments will be discussed, depending on the health of your teeth and gums.Our Dentabrite Essential Plan covers you for two check ups and two hygiene visits per year and can help in ensuring regular visits to the dentist.
