Gum Disease- what is it and do you have it?

Gum disease is the most common disease present in the adult population of the UK with approximately three quarters of adults having some element of it at any one time.

WHAT IS GUM DISEASE?

Gum disease is equivalently the same as a bacterial infection affecting the gums and most importantly the bone which support the teeth.

Your mouth is naturally full of bacteria (around 700 different types- some more damaging than others), which stick to the tooth surfaces creating a coating known as plaque. It is this soft bacteria in plaque that is the most damaging. If left undisturbed by daily brushing the bacteria produce toxins which attack the gums and bone around the teeth. The body then responds just like anywhere else in your body to try and kill the bacteria, but this reponse which is the inflammation (hence bleeding gums) can then cause damage itself. As the bacteria is on the surface of the tooth the body cannot get to it and kill it, so if you do not prevent or treat gum disease the damage simply builds up and worsens over time causing the bone to gradually shrink away. This is why it only becomes apparent in middle to old age; unless you are part of the population who is more susceptible to bone loss, or have a more severe response when younger. This progression is why it is vital to see a dentist and hygienist at regular intervals so your gums and bone levels can be checked and any disease stabilised to prevent tooth loss over time.

Ben has been so patient with me through out my treatment I am so beyond happy with the finished result I highly recommend! All the azure team are so polite and helpful wouldn’t go any where else!

My Mum (Carol Smith) recently had implant surgery and had her final appointment 2 weeks ago. As always, excellent care at Azure Dental and a fabulous end result.

Mum is so proud of herself as she has had a strong fear of the dentist all her life. Dan is AMAZING and Mum often says how he really is the “pain free dentist”.

Many thanks to his excellent team, who do wonders in keeping Mum calm with a special thank you to Becca for always keeping her informed.

I can’t believe they’re my teeth! I can’t thank Dan and the team enough for everything they have done!

After having dental traumas in the past this dentist practice has made me feel so reassured, calm and looked after. After having treatment I even received a follow up call 24 hrs later, on a Sunday, now that is a service 👌. I myself a ward sister of 17years in the NHS would recommend this practice. The staff are professional, efficient and so understanding ( my fear of the dentist), it is a clean, and very friendly environment

I can not recommend Dan Hines enough, I’ve just finished my orthodontic treatment and I am absolutely thrilled with my results. He’s a brilliant dentist and his nurse Becky is fantastic too both so friendly, patient and genuinely lovely people. I did my research before choosing which dentist I would like to take on my case and I chose Dan as he is one of the most precise, thorough dentists I know. Both him and Becky have been so professional and welcoming throughout my whole treatment, explaining every stage and answering any of my concerns. If your looking for a brilliant dentist that is so down to earth and puts you at ease Dan is your man! Thank you so much for all your help!

I live on a narrow boat and continually cruise the UK’s inland waterways....I am also terrified of dentists. When I say terrified, I say it without exaggeration. So terrified am I, that I had spent the twelve months prior to seeing Dan and his team, eating paracetamol like they were Smarties. My husband and I where moored in Maghull, when he declared enough was enough and dragged me (kicking and screaming) by train, to Azure Dental. My initial consultation confirmed what I had suspected, I needed four teeth removed. I can not begin to explain my abject fear at that prospect. Dan was lovely, kind and truly sensitive. He reassured me that I would feel no pain and he was 100% right, doing everything to ensure that result. Consequently, I returned to this practice and followed through with my treatment, each time my fear abating.
My boat is now moored in Market Harborough (East Midlands). I travelled for two hours by train to Manchester and then drove an hour to have Dan and his hygienist complete my treatment.
Big shout out to the lovely young blonde woman who held my hand initially and her dark haired colleague (sorry I don’t know either of your names) who helped me remain calm and relaxed for the rest of my treatment. I truly appreciated both of you. X

Dan, I will see you again. Thank you most sincerely.

Dan is "the smiling dentist" par excellance! He has a genuine concern for me & my teeth, & I know that I am in safe hands. Likewise, with his hygienist staff - always very thorough & professional. I couldn't recommend anyone more highly.

As a nervous patient I have always struggled to keep up with my dental care but on my first visit to Azure a woman who was just leaving said to me that I would be fine. Dan is brilliant she said and she was right. My teeth were in quite a state as I had not visited a dentist in years. He reassured me and explained everything and the whole experience was so much better than I was expecting.
That was a couple of years ago now and I no longer dread going to the dentist. Dan and all his team do a great job.

Excellent customer service and genuinely nice people. After a lot of research and a number of consultations I chose Dan for my Six Month Smile and he didn't disappoint, quick and efficient. I have since needed a couple of minor repairs to my retainer, on the first occasion I was concerned it was going to be very expensive but it wasn't it was a reasonable amount which reaffirmed my opinion. Highly recommended!

I was recommended to go for an assessment to Azure Dental. I have had some terrible experiences with dentists over a lifetime of difficulties with my teeth and I was a little sceptical. However from the moment I walked in I was treated brilliantly. All the staff were helpful and friendly. The consultation with Dan was the most thorough I have ever experienced. He is fastidious, obviously extremely knowledgable and competent. In addition he was polite, caring and courteous. He was able to make a difficult diagnosis with care and accuracy. I have no hesitation in recommending them. I shall be staying with them now I have found them.

I have always suffered from gum infections leading to receding gums and ultimately loss of teeth. I have a very unreasonable fear of dentist. I attended Azure for a consultation which was very thorough . I was assured that my fear would be treated with respect. My next appointment went absolutely superb. I have another appointment in the near future and I am not feeling the fear! Would absolutely recommend Azure to anyone.

WHAT ARE THE SIGNS?

Simply- any bleeding from the gums (when brushing or not) is the sign of active disease. The more bleeding that occurs when brushing, and bleeding that occurs just by itself means it is even more active. If allowed to progress then it can develop into increased swelling and soreness from the gums with a bright red appearance to them.

The disease development is split into 2 main stages- gingivits and periodontitis.

Gingivitis-

This is the most common form of gum disease- inflammed and bleeding gums. Treatment of the early stages of gum disease is very straight forward and treated gingivitis prevents the disease moving onto the next stage of periodontal disease.

Periodontitis-

Long-standing gingivitis can then turn into periodontal disease. There are a number of types of periodontal disease that affect the bone supporting the teeth. Aggressive disease can occur in younger people causing significant bone loss around specific teeth. Chronic long standing disease affects the majority of people meaning the disease progresses over time depending on how susceptible each person is to the bone loss element of the disease process. As the disease gets worse the bone anchoring the teeth in the jaw is lost, making the teeth loose. If this is not treated, the teeth may eventually fall out.

Can I Prevent Gum Disease?- Can it be treated?

 

In virtually every case the answer is yes. With good oral hygiene using an electiric toothbrush to brush your teeth, interdental brushes and flossing will prevent the plaque building up. Visit your dentist regularly for screening to ensure any gum disease is found at an early stage. To assess the presence of any disease they will use a periodontal probe to see if you have bleeding present, and in which areas, combined with any amount of bone loss present. Once the level of disease has been assessed a plan of action for your gum disease treatment can be put into action. Initially this will usually involve multiple hygienist visits for professional teeth cleaning and root planing if indicated. More importantly it will include extensive advice on the different oral hygiene methds and techniques that are available today, to help you remove the plaque on your teeth day to day. There is no one size fits all as each person is different- and so what size brush/ inter-dental aid suits one person may be totally wrong for the next. Your plan will be bespoke to you and your mouth.

The success and then more importantly long term stability of any gum disease treatment is dependent on you; and the time, care and attention you give to good oral health each and every day. This combined with regular maintenance visits usually on a 3 monthly basis with the hygienist to monitor the stability and prevent any reoccurance of the gum disease. While also encouraging you to keep up with the day to day regime required.

Common gum disease questions-

Does smoking make gum disease worse?

The effects of smoking increases the speed of the disease and the damage that occurs to the bone with while at the same time making the outwardly visible aspects less noticeable by reducing any bleeding from the gums significantly. Therefore the presence of gum disease is often not recognised until teeth are becoming loose and alot of serious damage has already been done.

Do I get gum disease when pregnant?

No- this is an old wives tale from years gone by.

Simply, it is your bodies response to the already existing gum disease present in your mouth. Your response to the bacterial plaque is increased significantly by the extra hormones going around the body during this time. It is known as “pregnancy gingivits” and so excellent gum health and preventative care and monitoring of your gum tissue is important during this time.

Bad Breath

Bad breath can be a sign of chronic advanced gum disease with the main cause being poor oral hygiene, with plaque and debris allowed to build up between the teeth.

Can antibiotics cure gum disease?

Unfortunately there is no magic pill for this disease. An antibiotic can only help in situations of acute infections or in very localised sites around a tooth with a periodontal chip or paste.

If you have bleeding gums, receeding gums or loose teeth, call us now for a Consultation- we can help you save your teeth.

The latest modern research has also linked gum disease with an increased risk of heart disease , and more recently with low birth weight babies.

Gingivial Gum Veneers- a cosmetic solution

If you have sufferred with gum disease over time then you may well have receeded gums and be looking “long in the tooth”, with dark spaces between the teeth where the gum and bone used to be. For some people this causes a cosmetic issue for which there used to be no simple solution. A different type of veneer treatment has been developed for the gums; in which a soft silicone mask is made to go into the dark spaces and cover the necks of the teeth transforming the overall appearance when smiling.

Dan is fabulous and always explains everything he is going to do on each session. The biggest bonus is I didn’t feel a thing,no pain what so ever.
Highly recommend Azure Dental

After having dental traumas in the past this dentist practice has made me feel so reassured, calm and looked after. After having treatment I even received a follow up call 24 hrs later, on a Sunday, now that is a service 👌. I myself a ward sister of 17years in the NHS would recommend this practice. The staff are professional, efficient and so understanding ( my fear of the dentist), it is a clean, and very friendly environment

I can not recommend Dan Hines enough, I’ve just finished my orthodontic treatment and I am absolutely thrilled with my results. He’s a brilliant dentist and his nurse Becky is fantastic too both so friendly, patient and genuinely lovely people. I did my research before choosing which dentist I would like to take on my case and I chose Dan as he is one of the most precise, thorough dentists I know. Both him and Becky have been so professional and welcoming throughout my whole treatment, explaining every stage and answering any of my concerns. If your looking for a brilliant dentist that is so down to earth and puts you at ease Dan is your man! Thank you so much for all your help!

I live on a narrow boat and continually cruise the UK’s inland waterways....I am also terrified of dentists. When I say terrified, I say it without exaggeration. So terrified am I, that I had spent the twelve months prior to seeing Dan and his team, eating paracetamol like they were Smarties. My husband and I where moored in Maghull, when he declared enough was enough and dragged me (kicking and screaming) by train, to Azure Dental. My initial consultation confirmed what I had suspected, I needed four teeth removed. I can not begin to explain my abject fear at that prospect. Dan was lovely, kind and truly sensitive. He reassured me that I would feel no pain and he was 100% right, doing everything to ensure that result. Consequently, I returned to this practice and followed through with my treatment, each time my fear abating.
My boat is now moored in Market Harborough (East Midlands). I travelled for two hours by train to Manchester and then drove an hour to have Dan and his hygienist complete my treatment.
Big shout out to the lovely young blonde woman who held my hand initially and her dark haired colleague (sorry I don’t know either of your names) who helped me remain calm and relaxed for the rest of my treatment. I truly appreciated both of you. X

Dan, I will see you again. Thank you most sincerely.

I am so pleased that I joined Azure Dental's easy payment plan 2 years ago. It is a joy to be able to go to the dentist and not have to worry about paying. Dan is "the smiling dentist" par excellance! He has a genuine concern for me & my teeth, & I know that I am in safe hands. Likewise, with his hygienist staff - always very thorough & professional. I couldn't recommend anyone more highly.

As a nervous patient I have always struggled to keep up with my dental care but on my first visit to Azure a woman who was just leaving said to me that I would be fine. Dan is brilliant she said and she was right. My teeth were in quite a state as I had not visited a dentist in years. He reassured me and explained everything and the whole experience was so much better than I was expecting.
That was a couple of years ago now and I no longer dread going to the dentist. Dan and all his team do a great job.

Best dentist ever!! Dan and his team are lovely. I was so ashamed of my teeth when I came for the consultation. Every visit I was actually excited for my appt. yesterday my brace has come off and I can't stop smiling showing my teeth, can't wait to smile on my wedding day showing my straight teeth! Definitely recommend anyone to go here!! Will miss coming for an appt. ☺️

Been going to Azure Dental since they opened and they have always been superb. I recommended by Son to go too. He needed extensive treatment and he was delighted with the results. Their newly appointed dental hygienist is a great asset to the group.
Long may it continue .........

Excellent customer service and genuinely nice people. After a lot of research and a number of consultations I chose Dan for my Six Month Smile and he didn't disappoint, quick and efficient. I have since needed a couple of minor repairs to my retainer, on the first occasion I was concerned it was going to be very expensive but it wasn't it was a reasonable amount which reaffirmed my opinion. Highly recommended!

I was recommended to go for an assessment to Azure Dental. I have had some terrible experiences with dentists over a lifetime of difficulties with my teeth and I was a little sceptical. However from the moment I walked in I was treated brilliantly. All the staff were helpful and friendly. The consultation with Dan was the most thorough I have ever experienced. He is fastidious, obviously extremely knowledgable and competent. In addition he was polite, caring and courteous. He was able to make a difficult diagnosis with care and accuracy. I have no hesitation in recommending them. I shall be staying with them now I have found them.

Hi Just wanted to write a review about Azure Dental Formby. I have only currently joined the practice and have visited a couple of times as I am getting continuous treatment at the moment. I can not recommend this practice highly enough. From the staff to the treatment i am having, 1st class service. I am finally after having years of problems with my teeth getting my smile back to how it was. Can not thank them all enough. ����

I have always suffered from gum infections leading to receding gums and ultimately loss of teeth. I have a very unreasonable fear of dentist. I attended Azure for a consultation which was very thorough . I was assured that my fear would be treated with respect. My next appointment went absolutely superb. I have another appointment in the near future and I am not feeling the fear! Would absolutely recommend Azure to anyone.
