Gum disease, also known as periodontitis, can affect individuals of all ages. It’s a common cause of premature tooth loss, often stemming from inadequate oral hygiene. At Poppies Dental Care, we emphasise the prevention and treatment of gum disease. Our hygienists will explain the importance of healthy gums and provide guidance on maintaining exceptional oral health.

  1. Preserve Your Smile: Treating gum disease early at Poppies Dental Care prevents tooth loss, ensuring your smile remains complete and beautiful.

  3. Expert Care: Our experienced team specializes in gum health. We offer tailored treatment plans and guidance to help you regain and maintain healthy gums.

If gum disease is caught and treated early it can be reversible,. It typically starts as gingivitis, which is the mild and reversible inflammation of the gums. If left untreated, gingivitis can progress to a more severe and chronic form of gum disease called periodontitis

As an elderly lady with severe breathing problems and a pathological fear of dentists, I feared the worst when I needed to receive treatment. All my fears have been dissipated, the treatment I received (involving drill work) was painless, speedy and stress-free. My comfort was a major consideration at all times. I have many health issues (including deafness) and all attention was paid to factoring in these setbacks. The dentist was infinitely reassuring throughout and executed my drilling and filling with speed and efficacy. The nurses also could not have been more comforting and efficient. I can only say that such exemplary treatment has allayed my deep-seated fear of dental work. I can reiterate that I would recommend Poppies Dental to any and everybody, especially those with a phobia of dentists. Top marks to all involved.
