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.

How do I choose a dentist that is right for me?2022-02-06T23:07:04+03:00

It is important that you feel comfortable with the person who is treating you. To put your mind at ease, it is a good idea to ask your dental practice questions about their awareness of LGBT patients’ needs. At first you can do this by telephone and you won’t have to give any details that you don’t feel happy giving.

You can use this as an opportunity to discuss any health conditions you may have. This will allow the dental team to share their knowledge and tell you how they can help you.

When you’re choosing the right practice to visit, it is important to feel confident that the dentist understands your needs.

Whatever dentist you choose, you can be sure:

  • You are in a safe place where, if you choose, you can disclose information about your trans status, gender history and sexual orientation.
  • No-one there will make assumptions about you simply because you are LGBT.
  • Information about you will be treated confidentially and you will not lose control over what other people know about you.
  • You will be treated with respect and without discrimination or judgement.
I have heard gum disease is linked with other health conditions – is this true?2022-02-06T22:07:38+03:00

In recent years gum disease has been linked with general health conditions such as diabetes, strokes, cardiovascular disease, poor pregnancy outcomes and even dementia. More research is needed to understand how these links work but there is more and more evidence that having a healthy mouth and gums can help improve your general health and reduce the costs of medical treatment.

What sort of brush should children use?2022-02-06T22:14:09+03:00

There are many different types of children’s toothbrushes, including brightly coloured brushes, some that change colour, some with favourite characters on the handle, and some with a timer. These all encourage children to brush their teeth. The most important thing is to use a small-headed toothbrush with soft, nylon bristles, suitable for the age of your child.

Using a power toothbrush, suitable for the age of your child, can help to make brushing fun and make sure your child brushes for the correct amount of time.

Are white fillings as good as silver amalgam fillings?2022-02-06T18:56:54+03:00

White fillings have always been considered less long-lasting than silver amalgam fillings. But there are now new materials available that are comparable to silver amalgam, and these are proving to be very successful. The life expectancy of a white filling can depend greatly on where it is in your mouth and how heavily your teeth come together when you bite. Your dental team can advise you on how long your fillings should last.
