Gum Treatment: What Are They, Benefits and Cost

Don’t let gum problems ruin your smile.

Our gums say a lot about our oral health. Gums that are red, swollen or bleeding are common telltale signs of gum or periodontal disease.

Many people suffer from gum disease. Prolonged tartar buildup can eventually cause inflammation of the gums (gingivitis). Gingivitis causes swollen gums that bleed easily whilst brushing teeth. Simple treatment, together with changes in oral hygiene habits, will cure and reverse this disease. In susceptible patients, gingivitis may eventually progress to a more serious condition called periodontitis.

Prevent periodontal disease.

Periodontitis causes teeth to gradually lose support and it is the most common cause of tooth loss among adults. People are mostly unaware that they have severe gum disease because it usually progresses without pain.

Your dentist and hygienist can detect early signs of gum disease and help prevent its progression. Patients with periodontitis are often referred to a specialist periodontist or gum specialist.

When gums shrink or pull away, the teeth often look longer as more of the root surfaces of the teeth are exposed. This is called gum recession.

Frequently Asked Questions About Dental Health


Our FAQs are the most commonly-asked questions put to our Dental Helpline over the last year. If you have a question for us, you can ask our Dental Helpline by telephone or email. Alternatively, please take a look at our library of oral health information, which contains a wide range of oral health advice in an easy-to-understand Q&A format.

What if I need dental x-rays?2022-02-06T23:00:46+03:00

Usually, dentists prefer to avoid dental x-rays during pregnancy if possible. However, if you need root canal treatment you may need to have an x-ray.

What techniques can the practice use to help me?2022-02-06T20:55:08+03:00

This will depend on which techniques the practice is experienced in, and which you feel would help you most. Many practices offer several types of sedation, including inhalation (‘gas and air’) and intravenous (an injection). Other practices offer hypnosis and relaxation techniques. You would learn these techniques yourself, which would allow you to gain control over your feelings of distress or fear. You can also learn relaxation techniques from specialist teachers or at home. They can be very useful in controlling anxiety (see our information about ‘relaxation and sedation’).

Counselling is another way of dealing with feelings of anxiety. This is usually carried out by a member of the practice team, in a room away from the surgery. You would be encouraged to discuss your fears so that you can deal with them and overcome them.

Why do I have a sudden toothache?2022-02-04T00:11:58+03:00

Toothache can strike at any time of the day or night, and the pain can become debilitating if not treated quickly. If the cause of the pain is related to the root canal this can make your pain worse at night, since blood pressure in the jaw increases when reclining.

Our Advice: Contact us straight away to arrange an immediate visit. Take painkillers (if required, as prescribed by your doctor). Try to remain in a sitting position.

What are dental implants?2022-02-06T21:22:27+03:00

A dental implant is used to support one or more false teeth. It is a titanium screw that can replace the root of a tooth when it fails. Just like a tooth root, it is placed into the jawbone.
