00:20 –> How should the gum sit?
00:34 –> What happens when there is a gap between the tooth and gum?
00:38 –> What can happen if you have pockets?
00:51 –> How important is it to see a dental hygienist?
Why would somebody see a hygienist? What is gum disease? What is periodontal disease?
The gum should be like a very tight collar around the tooth. There’s a crevasse that runs around every single tooth in your mouth.
From the top of that crevasse to the bottom of that crevasse should be around 2-3 millimetres because that’s firm, it’s healthy and it’s easy to clean.
If the gum gets pushed away from the tooth for any reason, and a pocket forms on the side of the tooth, there could be an infection and/or inflammation.
We now know that the body is connected. And because of that, an inflammation somewhere in the body will affect other parts of the body.
So seeing a hygienist is perhaps the most important part of our treatment.
Fixing things is one thing, but keeping them healthy is by far the most important.
