This month on our Social Media pages we will help you understand gum disease, and the benefits of looking after your gums to your health.
But first, what is gum disease?
Gum disease is a very common condition where your gums become swollen, sore or infected. It is usually caused by poor brushing and interdental care means that plaque, a sticky film containing bacteria, remains on the teeth and irritates the gums.
The early stage of the condition is called gingivitis, which if not treated can develop into a more serious form of gum disease known as periodontitis.

This month we welcome Rachel Perry to the practice.
She is the new dentist taking over from Lucy Middlefell and will be working Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays.
Rachel graduated from Bristol Dental School, and was a student of Robert and Lucy's at the time. We welcome her back to the South West after a period of time spent working in Australia and more recently, London.
Belgrave House Dental Practice will remain open during the new lock down (starting 5th January 2021)
Dental Practices are considered essential services and we have all the procedures in place to ensure safe care for all our patients.
We can continue to provide a full range of care including hygienist visits, routine dentistry, dental implants and emergency treatment. Check-up appointments are available too!
If you have an appointment with us, there is no need to cancel.
Patients new and old, please give us a call - if it is routine or urgent, we will do our best to help.
