Who Can Get Gum Disease?

Most people can get mild gum disease but some people are susceptible to more aggressive forms. Severe gum disease, especially if you have it at a young age, can run in families. There are a few factors that put people at higher risk of getting severe gum disease.

These include:

  • Diabetes (especially if poorly controlled)
  • Smoking (possibly including e-cigarettes)
  • Stress
  • A poor diet lacking in vitamins and minerals
  • Obesity
  • Certain medications

Common Signs Of Gum Disease

Gum disease is usually pain-free (sometimes called ‘the silent disease’) and so you may be unaware of it until your dentist or hygienist checks for it. Here are some of the ‘Red Flags’:

Red, Swollen, Or Bleeding Gums

Gums that are inflamed, tender, or bleed easily during brushing or flossing.

Persistent Bad Breath Or Bad Taste

Ongoing halitosis or a constant unpleasant taste in the mouth.

Receding Gums

A pullback of the gums from the teeth, making teeth appear longer and creating pockets susceptible to infection.

Loose Or Shifting Teeth

Advanced stages of gum disease, where the support structure of teeth is compromised, leading to tooth movement or spacing changes.

Painful Chewing Or Sensitivity

Discomfort or increased sensitivity while chewing, often a result of gums receding and exposing the roots of the teeth.

Those Experiencing Bone Loss

Bone loss in the jaw (implants can help stimulate bone growth).

Gums That Are Not Firmly Attached

Advanced stages of gum disease, where gums no longer snugly fit around the teeth, indicating a loss of connective tissue.

Passionate About Changing Lives

Being someone who is absolutely petrified of going to the dentists has resulted me in having gum decease. I came across Mark Tangri on social media and straight away he caught my attention as he hit home with all the things I wanted to hear giving me comfort and confidence. I then booked a consultation and from the time I walked in to the time I left I have never felt so comfortable and supported from a dentist. I have since had treatment and have never looked back. I highly recommend this practise 100 times over.

Nina Mathari

I’ve been a patient of Marks for 15 years now. I am an exceptionally phobic patient – and am quite difficult to manage when triggered – and Mark has gone above and beyond to develop my trust so that I can receive treatment. He puts my needs first and for a long time has focused on me maintaining my oral health with minimal treatment by condensing it into one appointment to manage my fear and stress. I wouldn’t go anywhere else. Ever. And have referred friends to Mark. The team he has at his surgery are friendly and understanding and very helpful too. I can’t recommend enough.

Claire Till

I had a good experience. I am 14 and having braces with another practice and had to have teeth removed. Some of my teeth were extra teeth and buried under my gums deep in the bone. I had sedation to remove these teeth. I felt comfortable and safe. I recommend this place and so does my mom and family.

Eiman Salamati

Have been a patient for many years. I followed Dr Mark to his new practice and will continue to be his patient as long as he continues dentistry. He is gentle when working, meticulous which results in fantastic results that are long lasting. His staff are brilliant, truly dental excellence. I can’t praise them enough.

Lainagh Reid

I’m exceptionally nervous of dentists, and have put off making an appointment for ‘many’ years – however I really needed to get my teeth looked at. After reading reviews of the many dentists in the area, I picked Mark Tangri, as it seemed to be well regarded by previous patients. I made the right choice! The staff are welcoming, and really put me at ease – the waiting time for appointments is minimal. Treatment options were fully discussed and explained, and the treatment itself was undertaken with the care and professionalism that I hoped for. If it wasn’t for my phobia, I’d even say I’m’ looking forward’ to going back..!

Sean Rhodes

Amazing! With the very short time I had the team were able to fit me in and get the job done. I would like to say a massive thank you to them team and uzair for amazing job they have done. Would highly recommend! I have my dream smile ????

Shezzy Kay

First time at Mark Tangri Dental Excellence and an impressive experience, excellent and facilities, with friendly and welcoming staff on hand to ease any worries. Initially, I was nervous with my diagnosis ( gum disease), but the outstanding dental service and advice from Mark Tangri with regards to my treatment gave me confidence that I am in good hands. I am optimistic for a good outcome following further visits. I even decided on my first visit to pay monthly for a cost-effective Denplan payment plan to enjoy a happy and healthy smile!

S M (Siamese)

I am currently going through my Invisalign journey with Mark and the team. From the moment I walked in to the practice I was treated like family. He talked me through all my options, if I didn’t understand something he would repeat everything again. We spent hours talking to make sure I knew and understood everything. I am on my 4th week and it’s going great. I’m so looking forward to my end results.

Nervous Of The Dentist?

Pain-Free Treatment, With Specialist Sedation Dentistry

We have a team of Sedation Dentistry Specialists. Sedation Dentistry helps patients relax during procedures. It’s often referred to as ‘Sleep Dentistry’, although that’s not entirely accurate. Patients are usually awake with the exception of those under General Anaesthesia.

Sedation is useful for calming nerves, managing sensitivity or gag reflexes during procedures. It is particularly beneficial for major dental treatments.

Gum Disease Treatment

Frequently Asked Questions

Ask your dentist to explain this, in particular in relation to your own BPE score. Your BPE score is a measure of your gum health and should be a standard part of your routine dental examination.

Please make sure you tell your dentist about any problems with your health and about any tablets or medicines you are taking. Some medical conditions may change the way your dentist/hygienist manages your disease and some medication may change the appearance of your gums.

Treatment aims to reduce bacteria around your teeth and prevent the disease from getting worse. Generally though, treatment cannot replace the support your teeth have already lost.

  • You will be taught the best methods of cleaning your teeth and gums to remove dental plaque. Treatment will only work if you clean your teeth properly, twice a day, to a high standard.
  • You need to clean daily between your teeth with interdental brushes – or floss if the gaps between teeth are too tight for brushes.
  • You should use a small headed toothbrush or a good quality power brush – your dentist can advise you.
  • The tartar above the gum-line can be removed by your dentist/hygienist.
  • Any bacteria below the gum line can be removed by your dentist/hygienist deep cleaning your teeth. You can ask for an injection to make your gums and teeth numb if you prefer.
  • Mouthwashes may help with very mild gum disease but may mask more serious gum disease.
  • Your gums are likely to bleed more to start with – don’t worry and keep cleaning as this is normal and will improve.
  • As they become healthier your gums may shrink. Spaces may appear between the teeth and they may appear longer.
  • As gums shrink, your teeth may become more sensitive to hot, cold or sweet  things. Usually this gets better in a few weeks, but you might need to use a special sensitivity toothpaste or have other treatment to help with this.

Removal (extraction) of teeth may be an acceptable alternative treatment if your disease is severe.

  • You may wish to have replacements for any lost teeth by means of a denture,   bridge or an implant. Implants are only recommended if the gum disease is no longer present.
  • People find it easier and more enjoyable to eat with natural teeth rather than replacements.
  • Extractions would reduce the time spent treating your gums. An extraction would remove a painful tooth quickly.
  • If your front teeth have a poor appearance, a denture or a bridge may look better.

If you smoke tobacco you should do your best to give up, there are plenty of organisations that can help. Smokers who continue to smoke:

  • Are more likely to get gum disease.
  • May find their gum disease gets worse quite quickly and are less likely to get better after treatment.
  • Are more likely to have a recurrence of gum disease following treatment.

Tooth decay cannot occur if you;

  • Prevent High Sugar intake.
  • Brushing and flossing teeth properly prevents bacteria causing tooth decay.
  • Regular teeth cleaning and excellent oral hygiene doesn’t give bacteria time to cause decay.
