Gum Hygiene Treatments

Keeping your gums thoroughly cleaned can be difficult to achieve, even with regular brushing and flossing. Food particles that often become stuck in between the crevices of your teeth can develop into plaque, that build up in hard to reach areas. It is therefore vital that patients take part in regular gum hygiene treatments and dental cleanings to maintain their oral health. It is also recommended that you make the time to visit your Saint John dentist, Dr. Paul Parent at First City Dental where a preventative action plan will be developed to avoid tooth decay, damage, and gum disease.

What are the Symptoms of Gum Disease?

Gum disease is a serious condition and can be identified by bleeding gums, swelling, persistent bad breath, loose or sensitive teeth, receding gums, and painful sensations when chewing. One of the most dangerous factors of gum disease is that it can often go unnoticed among patients.
