Do you suffer from bleeding gums or bad breath?

These are often the early signs of gum disease also known as Gingivitis.

Gum disease if left untreated is a silent but progressive disease which can result in permanent bone loss around our individual teeth, which is known as Periodontal Disease.

5 common signs of Gum disease:

  1. Bleeding on brushing or flossing.
  2. Halitosis commonly known as bad breath.
  3. Gum recession.
  4. Hard yellow-creamy coloured deposits of tartar (scale /calculus)behind your lower front teeth.
  5. Loose or drifting teeth.

 

If any of the following medication or health issues effect you (shown on the list below) they could make you more susceptible to Gum Disease:

 

  1. Heart problems.
  2. Diabetes.
  3. Take medication for epilepsy or high blood pressure.
  4. Those on high doses of steroid medication.
  5. Those under going chemotherapy or radiology treatment.
  6. Pregnant women.
  7. Those who have suffered from a stroke.

 

Top tips to maintaining healthy gums:

  1. Use the correct toothbrush 2 x day. The toothbrush must be suitable for your mouth, as not everybody will benefit from the same toothbrush!
  2. Cleaning spaces/gaps between our teeth daily every evening with either dental floss or the right sized interdental brushes.
  3. Using the accurate techniques to remove plaque deposits(soft harmful bacteria) that stick to our teeth. Brushing and flossing is not always a set method, as some of us have more crowded teeth, dental bridges, crowns, bulky or uneven fillings and in some cases dental implants, often causing plaque and food traps in our mouth!
  4. Using a more specialised  mouthrinse or toothpaste that is formulated for bad breath or gum disease . Many retail mouthrinses and toothpaste’s will only disguise bad breath temporarily and are not strong enough to kill all the harmful bacteria present in our mouth, despite their claims!
  5. Visiting your Dentist every 6 months and Dental Hygienist every 3 to 6 months, on a regular basis is one of the most important steps you can take to maintain or improve your oral health. These are the Dental Experts who can give YOU tailor made advise to help maintain a healthy mouth and enhance your confidence and smile!

 

At aesthetics our Dentist and Senior Dental Hygienist are trained professional clinicians who carry out a detailed periodontal (gum) assessment and are skilled in the most advanced screening to determine the levels of bacteria and infection in your mouth. The capability they possess to keep your mouth infection-free goes far beyond a simple examination and scaling and polishing your teeth,

Regular Oral Health Assessments is your best insurance for keeping your teeth and gums healthy and against future tooth loss.

Who does it treat?

Botox® can be used for any lines that are a result of facial expressions. The three main areas are:

How can I get it?

Simply book an appointment with us for 30 minutes and strat the process of good ageing.

What other options are there to reduce lines?

If the lines are present at rest, then dermal fillers may be a better option. We offer a free consultation to determine what treatment would be best for you in terms of the results you wanted to achieve.

Not at all. The botox is given just under the skin. We have many needle phobic patients who have the treatment comfortably.
