Periodontal Disease

Periodontal Disease:
At Manor Dental Centre, with the support of our highly skilled staff, we are proud to provide the highest standard of periodontal care to our patients.
Periodontal Disease
Periodontitis (usually known as Gum Disease) causes permanent tooth, gum and bone damage. Dental plaque (bacteria) causes inflammation of the soft tissues surrounding the teeth.
Symptoms and causes
If your gums bleedwhen you clean your teeth or floss, this is a sign on inflammation of the gums and possible infection which can indicate the presence of underlying periodontal disease.
Your gums may look red and swollenand you may notice your teeth becoming more exposed (seeing more of the crown and eventually the roots) becoming mobile, sensitive and unstable.
General health
There is growing scientific evidence that there is a causal link between periodontal disease and other systemic illnesses such as diabetes and cardio-pulmonary (heart) disease.
