Gum Disease and Decay

Decay results in: Tooth collapse, bad breath, poor aesthetics, thermal sensitivity or pain.

Many young people have not experienced tooth decay thanks to fluoride, better personal oral hygiene and improved diet.

Tooth decay is however on the rise in adults, from the baby boomers onward.

Old leaking fillings, gum recession with vulnerable exposed root surfaces, tooth movement causing food-packing (especially next to implants), dry mouth due to medication, less dexterity to clean well can undo a lifetime of dental care in a year or two.

Decay and erosion, if detected early can be treated simply often using preventive measures and minimally invasive techniques.
