Gum disease or Periodontal Disease is still the major cause of loss of adult teeth. With the correct diagnosis, treatments and advice on maintenance we can minimise the impact gum disease can have on your life.
We know there are also links with gum disease and general overall health and some health issues like diabetes and heart disease. By treating and preventing gum disease we can help your overall general health too.
Tooth decay can also be prevented by good diet, good tooth brushing and occasionally fluoride treatments.
All these treatments can be carried out by our Dental Hygienist here at Lauriston Dental Care in Edinburgh.
