Gum Disease Awareness Month
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.
