Gum Disease

Castle Park Dental Care helps patients across Hull and East Yorkshire protect their gums.

Gum disease is caused by bacteria that infects and inflames the gums but our lasers, alongside deep cleaning, help get rid of this, removing the toxins that cause inflammation.

Gum disease can even result in problems with your heart, kidney and lungs, so it is important to get this cleared.

We can carry out this procedure to help you avoid surgery and our friendly experts will help get your gums back to the healthy state you deserve them to be in.


Gingivitis (gum inflammation) usually precedes periodontitis (gum disease).
However, it is important to know that not all gingivitis progresses to periodontitis.

What’s The Difference Between Gingivitis And Periodontitis?

In the early stage of gingivitis, bacteria in plaque build up, causing the gums to become inflamed and to easily bleed during tooth brushing. Although the gums may be irritated, the teeth are still firmly planted in their sockets. No irreversible bone or other tissue damage has occurred at this stage.

Toxins or poisons — produced by the bacteria in plaque as well as the body’s “good” enzymes involved in fighting infections — start to break down the bone and connective tissue that hold teeth in place. As the disease progresses, the pockets deepen and more gum tissue and bone are destroyed. When this happens, teeth are no longer anchored in place, they become loose, and tooth loss occurs. 

Gum disease is the leading cause of tooth loss in adults.
