Many of us trust in our own oral healthcare regime, but it’s so easy to miss things, no matter how good we are at brushing and flossing.

Plaque turns to calculus (a hardened form of plaque) surprisingly quickly, after which time it will be difficult to remove without intervention from your dentist. Regular check-ups are the only way to nip these problems in the bud and catch signs of tooth decay and gum disease while they are in their earliest stages.

At Threemilestone Dental, we offer EMS Airflow® at your hygienist appointment, so you can enjoy the advanced technology of minimal-contact dental maintenance.

We offer a range of plans specifically designed to cater to those who are more focused on maintaining good oral hygiene between dental check-ups. Please ask a member of our team about our plans today or visit our membership plans page to find out more.

Gum disease prevention and treatment

Gum disease is an infection of the gums. If you have problems with bleeding or swollen gums, you may be in the early stages of the disease (gingivitis). It’s not too late to turn back the tide. With the right care, it is not only preventable but reversible.

Call Threemilestone Dental Practice in Truro to get yourself booked with one of our dental hygienists.

Periodontal care

Ultimately, periodontitis is down to poor dental hygiene. It results in damage to the gums and the underlying bones that support your teeth.

Some of the symptoms of this include:

  • Inflamed or swollen gums.
  • Bleeding gums.
  • Receding gums.
  • Pain in the gums.
  • Halitosis (bad breath).
  • Teeth are becoming loose.
  • Eventual loss of teeth.

There is evidence to suggest that, as the disease advances unchecked, it can lead to a host of other, potentially very serious, health problems.

For gum disease prevention and treatment, please get in touch with us here at Threemilestone Dental Practice in Truro. We’ll not only provide you with the highest-quality dental care, but we’ll also help you to establish a healthy daily regime that will keep further issues with your gums and teeth at bay.
