Gum Care

Do you have bleeding gums?!

This may be a sign of Gum Disease/Periodontal Disease. Swollen and bleeding gums are symptoms that your gums are inflamed due to nasty bacteria.

In recent years, gum disease has been linked to a number of other health problems.

Researchers are studying possible connections, and have found statistically significant links between gum disease and:

• Cardiovascular Disease
• Diabetes

What Causes Periodontal Disease?
Bacteria in dental plaque. This the furry white substance that forms on your teeth a couple of hours after you have brushed. Over time the plaque turns yellow, hardens and becomes calculus. This is a harbour for more bacteria, but is unable to be brushed off with your toothbrush.

At Goondiwindi Family Dental, we can diagnose if you have gum disease and assess if you are at risk of developing it in the future. We work together to help you manage this issue and can painlessly remove the sticky calculus to help your gums heal.
