An essential aspect of maintaining good dental health is to look after your gums. Your gums (Periodontal tissues) are the tissues into which the roots of your teeth are embedded. The gum tissues are constantly under threat from the bacteria (Plaque) in your mouth. Gum disease ranges in severity from minimal bleeding of the gums on light touch (Gingivitis) to loss of bone height and loosening of the teeth (Periodontitis). This is why City Dentists recommend brushing your teeth at least two times daily and regularly flossing along with having regular dental check-ups. The front line in fighting gum disease is to see one of our friendly Hygienists. Hygienists are trained to assess gum health and to provide you with a plan to prevent future gum disease. They are also experts in thoroughly cleaning your teeth and gums.
