In support of the major campaign being run by the British Society of Periodontology, here at Styvechale Dental Care we are keen to help ensure our valued patients are aware of Gum Disease - otherwise known as Periodontitis.
Why? Because there are an increasing number of studies now showing the link between oral health and a significant number of other conditions such as Alzheimer’s, cardio health and diabetes. In fact, more than 45% of adults in the UK are affected by gum disease and, even at its most mild level, can affect quality of life.
Please click below to download a Patient Guide, developed by the European Federation of Periodontology, for top tips on looking after your teeth and gums in order minimise your risk of gum disease.
If you are worried that you might have problems with your gums, your best next step is to discuss your concerns with your dentist - please call us on 024 7641 4225 or complete our Online Appointment Request Form to arrange an appointment at your convenience.
