As it is said ‘prevention is better than cure’ and here Novel Dental Group in Gravesend, we aim to provide our patients with full care in the fight against dental problems such as tooth decay and gum disease.
Good oral health begins at home and diligent brushing with a suited toothbrush, fluoride toothpaste and along with flossing, will get you off to a great start. Unfortunately, the bacteria that lead to both tooth decay and gum disease have a habit of finding their way into places that simply can’t be reached without periodic professional care to support your efforts at home.
This is where our dentists are on hand to help. They will remove the tartar (hardened bacteria) that has built up in difficult to reach places. Not only will this thorough cleaning help in the fight against gum disease, but will also leave your teeth looking and feeling cleaner too.
Your gums are like cushions for your teeth; they surround the teeth in the jaws and help to support them. Looking after your gums is just as important as looking after your teeth. Red and swollen gums that bleed when you brush them could be a sign of gum disease, also known as gingivitis.
If gingivitis is left untreated it can develop further into an infection known as periodontitis, which affects the entire area surrounding the tooth. This as a result could lead to tooth loss.
