Periodontal or gum disease has been called the silent disease because initially there are no symptoms.

If your gums are red, sometimes bleed when you brush, feel tender or look swollen … these are the symptoms of periodontal disease. If your mouth tastes unpleasant … that’s another symptom. If your gums have receded … you may have had gum disease for some time. Receding gums and bone and tooth loss are unattractive alternatives to healthy gums. But there’s more at stake! Gum disease has been linked to cardiovascular and other systemic diseases.

Studies have found oral bacteria from gum infections in arterial plaque and have also shown that therapy for periodontal disease lessens inflammation throughout the body.

Poor oral health has been identified as a stronger predictor of heart disease than other risk factors such as low levels of good cholesterol, high levels of a clotting agent and high levels of certain fats in the bloodstream.

Long-term and short-term studies continue to clarify the links between oral bacteria, inflammation and systemic diseases.

A recent report has said that the mouth is the gateway to the body, that you cannot be healthy without oral health and that oral health and general health are inseparable. Together, we can prevent and sometimes reverse gum disease. Brush, floss and keep regular preventive, diagnostic and maintenance dental appointments.

Tips on maintaining ideal oral health/ hygiene

  • Regular visits to the Dental Hygienist
  • Brush twice a day with a small headed medium textured tooth brush
  • Minimum brushing time 2 minutes
  • Manual tooth brushes should be changed every 4 to 6 weeks
  • Floss and/ or use inter-dental brushes once a day
  • Mouth washes are not recommended, unless prescribed

I had a real fear of the dentist after horrible childhood experiences. I no longer dread my visits as Mr Rosenstone understood my anxieties and reassured me. I feel safe and relaxed in his hands and I'm not frightened of the dentist anymore.

I had recently moved to the area and was in desperate need of a filling but was always scared of the dentist so I was quite apprehensive about going to a new dentist, but Dr Rosenstone and his team were just so polite and understanding, they were patient and explained the whole procedure to me. I barely notice the filling now and I feel so much better now that its done. I no longer fear my appointments now!
