Gum disease affects almost everyone at some stage in their lives. It is one of the leading causes of tooth loss in the world but can be totally preventable if gums and teeth are looked after properly.
At Orchard House Dental Practice our dedicated dentists and hygienists encourage all our patients to book regular appointments throughout the year in order to carry out the necessary gum and teeth health checks.
The benefits of having healthy gums
Otherwise known as gingivitis, gum disease is caused by the build-up of bacteria on the base of the tooth just along the gum line. This is called plaque, which eventually turns into tartar when hardened. This will then infect the gums, making them inflamed and sore.
Gum disease can develop quickly and if left untreated can lead to a number of problems such as bad breath (halitosis), bleeding gums and the eventual loss of teeth.

"Dr Kamini Mistry has been my Dental doctor for over 10 years, she is a very professional and experienced dentist. Like many, I'm not really a fan of dentists. Kam is able to put my nerves at ease when I come to see her for a check up.
Kam effortlessly explains in details what she will be looking at and overall how I can maintain having good and healthy teeth. Since seeing Kam over the many year I have maintained good healthy teeth and gums which I am very pleased about, and I have not faced any major issues to date.
I cannot recommend her highly enough for her gentle and yet professional care, I can’t imagine seeing any other dentist after Kams care."
