Services - Gum Therapy

It is equally important to maintain your gums as well as your teeth. At Norwest Dental Care we have realised the need for increased gum protection and are committed to help you care for your gums.

Periodontal Disease (Gum Disease) damages the gums and limits their ability to protect teeth. This is the greatest cause of tooth loss in adults. Sufferers of Periodontal Disease are also at higher risk of developing a variety of other conditions, affecting different parts of the body.

Research shows that people with inadequate oral health are more likely to develop numerous other fatal conditions. The risk of Cardiovascular Disease, Respiratory Disease or experiencing a fatal heart attack is doubled, if you also suffer from Periodontal Disease.

Oral hygiene and routine dental check-ups are essential for good dental and overall health. Dental consultations should be scheduled six monthly for a thorough oral check-up and clean.

Attaining clean, healthy teeth and gums is essential for your general health. Be sure to always;

  • Use a soft toothbrush with rounded bristles
  • Replace your toothbrush every three to four months
  • Change your toothbrush after an illness
  • Brush twice daily
  • Use toothpaste with fluoride
  • Floss once daily
  • Visit us on a routine basis
  • Attend Periodontal check-ups
  • Have oral cancer screenings
  • Avoid tobacco products
  • Avoid excessive alcohol use
