Dental Hygiene To Treat Gum Disease
A build-up of tartar and bacteria on your teeth can result in gum disease. It’s estimated that gum disease, to some degree, affects more than half of all adults in the UK.
The most common type is a mild form of gum disease called gingivitis, where bacteria causes inflammation of the gums and results in them becoming red and swollen, and quick to bleed.
Chelsea Dental Clinic
If gingivitis isn’t treated it can advance to periodontitis, where the gum comes away from the teeth and forms spaces (called “pockets”) that become infected. Our Chelsea dental clinic will carry out a teeth cleaning procedure to prevent this occurrence.
If periodontitis is ignored or untreated, the bones, gums, and tissue that support the teeth are destroyed.
The teeth may eventually become loose and have to be removed so we recommend contacting The Wellington Clinic’s Chelsea dental clinic before that happens.

Why is good dental hygiene important?
Not only is good dental hygiene important to prevent tooth loss, keep your gums healthy and ensure that your smile is kept white and bright, but good dental hygiene is also necessary for your overall health.
Many diseases’ first symptoms show in the mouth, and if you practise good dental hygiene, you’ll be able to notice a change in your teeth and gums right away.
Additionally, periodontal disease increases your body’s burden of inflammation, increasing the risk of heart disease.
Why doesn’t the Dentist just clean my teeth instead of the hygienist?
Dental Hygienists are specially trained to look after gums specifically. Thorough teeth cleaning plays a major role in maintaining healthy gums and teeth.
