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.

Betty D

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.
