Periodontal (Gum) Disease
in Leamington Spa
Identifying and Treating Gum Disease
Gum disease, or periodontal disease, is a common condition affecting the gums and surrounding tissues. Early signs include red, swollen, or bleeding gums. It’s essential to seek prompt dental care at these initial stages, as early treatment can prevent more severe complications.
Had a fabulous experience at this Dentist practise. I’m a very nervous patient and was so worried about my appointment. I arrived and met a lovely young lady on reception. She was very bubbly and really made me feel at ease, and reassured me everything would be ok, and she chatted to me to calm me. I felt so much better straight away. The Dentist I saw was equally so gentle and kind to me. I would highly recommend this surgery for their professionalism. Thank you for being so kind to me during my nervous visit.
Understanding the Causes
Gum disease is primarily caused by plaque buildup, which hardens into tartar. This irritates the gums and can lead to infection. Regular brushing can’t remove tartar; it requires professional cleaning by a dental hygienist.
After being with the excellent previous practice (the lovely Jenny Warham and co) for 14 years I attended my first encounter with Ascent Care with some curiosity. Well, let me say it was a really rewarding experience. Everyone was charming, polite, helpful and seemed genuinely determined to make my routine examination as caring and professional as possible. Made me smile. So thank you to everyone: highly recommended. Barrie Tracey, Stratford-upon-Avon.

I came in for a dental emergency to be given an appointment on the day. The staff and dentist were super helpful and got me out of pain, so thank you! I had been looking for a dentist to register with after moving to Leamington Spa and really glad I found Ascent.
My first appointment yesterday at this very friendly dentist. Im a very nervous customer. But they helped me feel at ease with myself.
I have always been conscious of my teeth however I am so happy with my veneers. The team at Ascent Dental explained everything in detail to me and were very thorough. They made me feel extremely relaxed. I love my new smile.
I recommend Ascent Dental to everyone!
I rang this dentist this morning, gave me emergency appointment straightaway, the lady on reception was lovely, when I arrived there. Dentist and assistant was great, very caring, and explained everything to me. I highly recommend this dentist, best one I have ever been too
Great quick easy and very friendly NHS service. Such a pleasure to deal with the lovely staff.
I want to thank the lovely receptionists who very kindly and professionally led me through to my treatment ,and the super efficient dental surgeon ,who performed a painfree triple extraction in less than 15 minutes…
If like me, you are very nervous about dentists, then don’t be afraid. You can tell ,this confident team at Ascent, love their work and care about their patients
I feel very lucky to have found them
I am an incredibly anxious patient and have been with the same dentist for many years. I was incredibly nervous about being a patient under a new dentist, however after an emergency appointment yesterday with Nikki I feel totally at ease about going back. Nikki was calm, understanding and patient. Took me through things very professionally and I felt so looked after. For the first time since my previous dentist, I’m not dreading my next appointment. Ellie on reception was also fab, explaining how things work and processes moving forward with this being a new practice. She was very approachable and nothing was too much trouble. Thank you!
I have been with Ascent dental surgery for the last 5 years and have enjoyed excellent service.
Dental surgeons are competent who provide dental implant service along with other like dental bridges. Staff are very polite and respectful. I will recommend their services to anyone based on my experience.
Very happy with the work I had done ,my white fillings look fantastic, and Eve the receptionist is so professional, patient, kind and lovely.
Staff were very friendly, managed to give me a filling at short notice and I appreciated their efforts
I highly recommend this dentist! Staff was always really friendly and helped me out greatly as I came since I chipped most of my front teeth that have been fixed now and look natural
I’m a new patient – so far so good. Friendly staff, reasonable prices. My teeth a sparkling after a recent trip to the hygienist ???? …
