WHAT’S FLOSSUARY ALL ABOUT?

10th February 2021

During the month of ‘Flossuary’ (February), we are encouraging everyone to try cleaning in between their teeth once a day for
28 consecutive days.

We believe that after 28 days you will feel and see a difference in your gum health.

  1. HELPS PREVENT TOOTH LOSS

Plaque collects between the teeth where toothbrushes can’t reach. If not cleaned away, the millions of bacteria in plaque can cause the gum to become inflamed (gingivitis). Sometimes you notice bleeding when your gums are inflamed, often when you brush. In some people, the inflammation continues and begins to destroy the bone that holds the teeth in. Deep pockets develop around the teeth. These pockets collect more plaque and the process continues (periodontitis). If left, teeth may become loose and/or require extraction.

  1. REDUCES YOUR RISK OF HEART DISEASE AND STROKE

Research has shown that where periodontal disease is present, bacteria can enter the bloodstream and cause changes in blood vessels
in other parts of the body. This leads to increased risk of heart disease and stroke.

Research is ongoing but links have also been made between periodontal disease and Alzheimer’s, rheumatoid arthritis and chronic
kidney disease.

  1. REDUCES RISK OF DIABETES

The presence of gum disease raises blood glucose levels which increases the risk of developing diabetes. This also means that already
diagnosed diabetics with periodontitis can find it harder to control their blood sugars. This increases their risk of complications in the heart and kidneys. Diabetics are also more likely to develop periodontitis, so these two diseases exacerbate each other.

WHAT OUR PATIENTS
SAY ABOUT US


Mr Mills was kind, pleasant and reassuring, and explained everything to me, so that I knew what was going on every inch of the way. I can’t recommend him and his implant team highly enough.
Ms VG
Super helpful, friendly, clean, efficient and brilliant at informing us of procedures & treatment. We never feel rushed or have to wait too long. They have made the dentist experience a positive one for our children – who are always excited to go!
Ms HK
I would rate this dentist 1000 stars if I could! Everyone there is so friendly and smiley! I had my teeth done by John Cato and Paula and what can I say. Both of them made me feel so relaxed even though I normally hate the dentist they have made this all change! I couldn’t thank them both enough.
Ms P
It’s nearly two months since my treatment for an implanted bridge concluded and I could not be more pleased. The treatment was excellent, the care by Ian Mills and his team was superb and the teeth look fantastic.
Mr SM
Rhys Gabe is an incredible guy. After 30 odd years of avoiding the dentist through fear I actually now enjoy going thanks to this man. I cannot recommend him highly enough to nervous and anxious patients.
