Gingivitis means inflammation of the gums. This is when the gums around the teeth become very red and swollen. Often the swollen gums bleed when they are brushed during cleaning. Long-standing gingivitis can turn into periodontal disease, and they all affect the tissues supporting the teeth. As the condition gets worse, the bone anchoring the jaw is lost, making the teeth loose.
What is conscious sedation? Conscious sedation is the safe and effective administration of drugs that safely relieve anxiety, increase relaxation, make the patient comfortable and reduce pain. Many procedures are performed safely, efficiently and cost-effectively using conscious sedation in our Hertfordshire practice.
