At Pure Dental Hygiene in Coleraine, award winning Dental Hygienist Joanne Knox runs a standalone Dental Hygiene practice, where the main focus is super clean teeth, the care of your gums and the prevention of dental disease.
Gum disease in one of the most widespread diseases across the world. Bleeding gums are an indication of gum disease, and it is preventable and treatable – but early detection is key.

DO YOU HAVE GUM DISEASE?
Symptoms too look out for:
- Bleeding gums when brushing or even eating
- Red, or swollen gums
- Bad breath
- Spaces appearing between teeth
- Wobbly teeth
- Receding gums (getting longer in the tooth)
- Sensitivity to hot or cold food and drinks
WHAT IS GUM DISEASE?
Gum disease happens when plaque gathers at the gum line and if not removed effectively with brushing and flossing, the gum will move away from the plaque and the tooth creating a ‘pocket.’ This pocket allows more bacteria to gather below the gum line. This progression creates ulceration of the gum tissue and can affect the bone support around the tooth and eventually result in tooth loss if left untreated.
This ulceration creates an open pathway for bacteria to enter your blood stream. Increased research is published every year highlighting the growing link between gum disease and other systemic conditions such as heart disease, strokes, Diabetes and Alzheimer’s.
WHAT CAN I DO TO PREVENT GUM DISEASE?
So, in simplified terms, controlling this level of inflammation in your mouth will have a direct systemic benefit to your whole body.
This is where hygienists are experts. We are trained to exceptional standards specifically in gum care, teeth cleaning and preventive treatments, allowing your own dentist to be able to focus on other complex aspects of dentistry such as root canals, fillings and crowns and bridge work.
HOW DO WE TREAT GUM DISEASE?
We will remove all the plaque and tartar above and below the gum line to eliminate the bacteria. All staining on your teeth will be removed in this process too. So, not only will your gums be healthier than ever, but your smile will be fresher and teeth brighter and more sparkly too.
We ensure you remain comfortable throughout this complete process. We will teach you how to specifically maintain your cleaner mouth with a custom home care regime.
