Preventing gum disease

Gum disease is one of the most common reasons for tooth loss and it begins with the build-up of plaque. The plaque forms tartar, or calculus, where the tooth meets the gum. 

The symptoms of gum disease are often overlooked as they can be pain-free in the first instance. At Mansion House in London, we offer the preventative treatment needed to help you keep gum disease at bay.

Treating gum disease in the City of London

<highlight-peru>At Mansion House Dental Practice, our skilled practitioners treat gum disease by thoroughly deep cleaning under the gums of the root surfaces to remove bacterial deposits causing the disease. This is usually conducted under local anaesthetic so you feel comfortable.<highlight-peru>

During this phase, your dentist will show you how to clean more effectively around the teeth and gums using toothbrushes and interdental aids.

In severe cases, advanced treatment with surgery can be undertaken to regenerate and replace lost bone and gum.

Treating gum disease in its early stages is important, as it will slowly begin to attack the bone and tissues that support your teeth, which can result in tooth loss. If you think you may have gum disease of some form, contact our team for advice.

Reviews that make us smile

At Mansion House, we aim to provide the highest standard of dental care in a friendly, modern, comfortable and conveniently located environment. Because patient satisfaction means everything to us.

Very very good dental practice, the staff were amazing. Initially felt very nervous due to bad previous experiences with other dentists. However, they made me feel very comfortable right from the off and provided information on the treatment options well and very clearly without all the complicated jargon. Would 100% recommend them to everyone. They have reinstalled my trust in the dental profession.
