DENTAL HEALTH – THE DENT IST @ TUPSL E Y


Bone Loss – This x-ray shows around 60% bone loss around the roots and distal surface of a tooth, caused by periodontitis. The red line is showing you where the bone level should be, however the white arrows are showing you where the bone levels currently are, this is significantly lower.


This shows a patient who has had 80% bone loss around a tooth. The roots are now exposed with very little support around the tooth, however this patients cleaning is immaculate and surprisingly there is no tooth mobility.


hygienist or dentist can clean effectively beneath the gum. This involves root surface debridement, where the infected layer of root surface is removed to improve the tooth’s long-term prognosis.


What can I do to prevent gum disease? The gums are the foundations that hold your teeth in place and is just as important to clean your gums as well as your teeth. When brushing with an electric toothbrush, you should hold the brush at a 45-degree angle to the gum line and hold over each surface for 3 seconds before moving to the next tooth.


Tartar – The red arrows show you little ledges that are coming off the teeth, this is a build-up of tartar. This would require scaling.


Tooth-brushing will only clean 60% of the tooth surface. It is vital to clean between your teeth to remove plaque and food debris and using interdental brushes (bottle brushes) is the most effective way to do so; they come in a variety of sizes and should fit snugly between your teeth. Your dentist or hygienist will be able to demonstrate the correct technique and advise you the correct sizes for your mouth.


If you are concerned about your gum health, and would like further advice, please contact The Dentist @ Tupsley on 01432 343158
