Patient Testimonials


"I was petrified before I came in. ..probably more afraid than most. Dr.Jones and his staff completed a thorough exam of my teeth and gums, followed by a well-explained, DETAILED outcome and plan of action. Completed my second visit today - a very deep cavity needed filling. I was seen right on time and was completely satisfied with the entire process and outcome. I especially appreciated Kelly's ability to assuage my fear and apprehension. Great job all around! - Mildred L.

What is gum disease?

gum disease lewes deOne of the first and most obvious symptoms of gum disease is bleeding gums. You may also see other signs that gum disease is present, like red, tender, or puffy gums.

It's important to recognize that you have gum disease and take steps to treat it. However, one of the reasons that gum disease is so prevalent is that there are often no noticeable symptoms at all. You can see why we strongly recommend routine exams and cleanings – these basic procedures are one of the easiest ways to catch gum disease in its early stages before too much damage has been done. If we catch it soon enough, gum disease can easily be treated, removing the infection and minimizing the risk of future problems.

Gum disease doesn’t go away by itself, and you can’t prevent it just by brushing and flossing more, although that’s always a good idea! The only way to prevent gum disease or treat it when it occurs is with routine professional dental cleanings.

Once you’ve had gum disease, you are always at risk for getting it again. Please call The Dental Group for an appointment, and we’ll be happy to perform a thorough exam and cleaning to prevent and treat gum disease.
