In west London, you need to be aware of the dangers that threaten your oral health each and every day- otherwise you could be literally putting your life on the line in the future. One of the most dangerous conditions that can erupt in the mouth is gum disease; not only can it threaten the shelf-life of your gums and teeth, but it can also attack other organs throughout your body. This disease will start by a combination of things, poor diet, smoking and a rubbish approach to oral hygiene and the first signs will be there when you discover traces of blood on your toothbrush after you have cleaned your teeth. If you act now, you can save the day, but if you ignore it, this disease will not only hack away at the gums, but it will attack the surfaces of your teeth and the very bone structure that holds your teeth in place. Fight it in every way that you can; check-in with a dentist and discuss what is going wrong with you. Sure your dentist can give you a good going over, but essentially, it is what you get up to away from the surgery that you need to address. Change your ways; improve your diet, cut out the fags and booze and improve your oral hygiene (bring in herbal remedies); if you care to ignore the problem then fine, but you will be dicing with your teeth and your life if you refuse to change.
