Patient Guide to Preventing Gum Disease


Top Tips on Looking After your Teeth and Gums in order to Minimise your Risk of Gum Disease

In support of the major campaign being run by the British Society of Periodontology, here at Hallcross we are keen to help ensure our valued patients are aware of Gum Disease – otherwise known as Periodontitis.

Why? Because there are an increasing number of studies now showing the link between oral health and a significant number of other conditions such as Alzheimer’s, cardio health and diabetes. In fact, more than 45% of adults in the UK are affected by gum disease and, even at its most mild level, can affect quality of life.
