Camden High Street Practice Gum Disease 2

Gum Disease Treatment Camden

Gum disease is often accompanied by soreness, swelling or infection of the tissues that support the teeth. The two forms of gum disease are – gingivitis and periodontal disease.

Gingivitis: Gingivitis is what we call inflammation of the gums. When this happens the gums around your teeth will become red and swollen. The swollen gums may bleed when you brush your teeth.

Periodontal Disease: If you have gingivitis for a long time, and it is untreated, then this may progress to periodontal disease. There are different kinds of periodontal disease that will affect the tissues supporting the teeth. When the disease gets worse, the bone anchoring the teeth in the jaw will start to be lost which in turn will make teeth loose. If left untreated then your teeth will eventually fall out or require to be taken out.

If you have gum disease in London, get in touch with our friendly team to schedule an appointment. Our dentists will provide the right course of personalised dental treatment that you need.

Causes of gum disease:

Gum disease is usually caused by plaque that builds up on the teeth. Plaque is a sticky substance that has bacteria in it and if left untreated, it will coat the teeth and give rise to gum disease

Some bacteria in plaque may not cause any harm but others are harmful to gum health. If plaque is not removed from the teeth through brushing and hygienist treatment it may build up and cause gum irritation leading to swelling, bleeding and soreness.


  • Sufferers notice that they have bad breath
  • Red or swollen gums
  • Tender or bleeding gums
  • Pain on chewing
  • Loose and sensitive teeth
  • Receding gums or teeth that appear elongated

Receding gums occur when the gums are being pulled away from a tooth, exposing the root of the tooth. Your gum tissue does not regenerate in the same way as other tissues do. For this reason, receding gums will not grow back.

Avoid gingivitis

  • Brush teeth at least twice a day
  • Usea soft-bristled electric toothbrush for cleaning your teeth
  • Change your toothbrush or toothbrush head every three months.
  • Floss daily
  • Use a mouthwash for proper cleaning
  • See your dentist regularly for routine check ups

You can prevent gum recession by taking proper care of your mouth and teeth. Brush and floss teeth daily and see your periodontist once every six months to maintain good oral health. If you already have gum recession, your dentist may ask you to see more often.

I had a wisdom tooth removed and a filling today, I cannot fault my treatment! My dentist was very skilled and calming! I didn’t even feel the injections! Restored my faith in dentists! TOO CLASS!!

I would really recommend this Dental Practice. Dr Kolar is a very attentive dentist who cares about the you as a person as well as about the health of your teeth and gums. He takes time to explain the processes he is leading you through, explains how your dental health has progressed over time and encourages you to take care of your teeth. For the first time in my life I look forward to coming to the dentist!

I have been registered at this dental practice now, for just over 15 years. Throughout that whole period, I have been lucky enough to have been looked after by the wonderful, and patient, Dr Prasad. He has covered many procedures in my mouth, from extraction, and root canal, right up to the most recent procedure, Composite bonding of my broken two front teeth. Do not hesitate to register at this practise, as you will be looked after with care and consideration.

Thank you Dr Prasao

Very friendly

During the lockdown period I was able to see Dr Irfan for a dental emergency I had. I’m so grateful that they have been available throughout this. Gillian the practice manager contacted me and offered me an appointment the same day. I am a long standing patient at this practice and cannot thank them enough for great service they have provided to me throughout the years. Great dentist, staff and management. Thank you all so much.

The Dental Care Center has been an excellent dentist surgery that I have been attending as a patient for many years. When I was young I didn’t have a pleasant experience with my local dentist on more than one occasion. I found the dentist at Camden dental care center very reassuring and comforting. The management and reception were also very welcoming.

Dr Yasha saw me when my teeth were a mess, I was super self conscious about it and it was affecting my life really negatively. I needed 3 bridges, which are still holding up great, and I’m on the practice plan so have the motivation to go in for regular hygienist and checkup appointments. Not only is my oral health better than ever, my overall wellbeing and peace of mind is immeasurably improved. The care and consistency of treatment I’ve received from Dr Yasha and hygienist Ramin has made going to the dentist (almost) a pleasure. 100% would recommend. Really great people doing excellent work.
