Neglecting proper dental hygiene will lead to plaque accumulation at the base of teeth, resulting in swollen and red inflamed gums.
If there’s a red flashing light urging immediate dental treatment it is sore gums that bleed easily when brushed. Infected gums that cause gum inflammation lead to bad breath (halitosis), look unhealthy and unattractive and cause continued discomfort.
Our experienced dentists in London EC4 start their treatment with a very thorough scaling and cleaning followed by an disciplined home care dental hygiene technique. If the gum disease is advanced, it may require gum surgery and deeper cleaning under the gums.
