The "New normal" dental visit at Carnegie Dental Clinic.

We are sending out a Coronavirus questionnaire via email before every appointment. We will also send out a medical history form on some occasions. These forms must be filled in and returned to us before your appointment. We will also send you details about the new patient journey.

On the day of your appointment please arrive at your appointment time and not before. If you were previously advised to shield we would advise you to notify our reception via a text message to 0756 6861938 when you have arrived for your appointment and stay in your car until the dentist or hygienist is ready for you, incase they are running late.

Please come to your appointment unaccompanied (unless you are under 16y) and with minimal baggage.

Our receptionist will take your temperature on arrival. Please arrive wearing a mask. You will be asked to use hand sanitiser upon entering the building.

Once your visit is complete the receptionist will make your next appointment and discuss any treatment quotes. If you are able to pay via card this method is preferred to cash.

If you have any queries relating to your treatments please let us know and a member of our team will give you a phone call or video call to discuss your concerns and queries once you get home.

Please be reassured that the steps we have taken will enable us to provide you with Dentistry safely during these challenging times.

Yours Sincerely

Facts about Gum Disease

What is gum disease?

Periodontal (gum) disease, is a chronic bacterial infection of the gums and bone supporting the teeth. Gum disease is often painless, signs can include red and inflamed gums that bleed easily on brushing.You may also notice gums that pull away from your teeth , loose teeth and bad breath.

What are the causes of gum disease?

The main cause of gum disease is dental plaque, which is a sticky film on the tooth surface. The bacteria contained in plaque release toxins that can damage the gums. The toxins cause inflammation of the surface of the gums which is known as gingivitis. This inflammation will resolve if the plaque is removed through cleaning of the teeth and no permanent damage is done.

If the plaque is left and continues to increase it can begin to mineralise and form tartar (calculus). Such hard deposits have a rough surface and allow more plaque to form and cause further damage to the gums. If plaque accumulates for a long time the changes it causes in the gums can lead to loss of the your teeth’s bone support, a condition known as periodontitis.

Can gum disease cause additional health problems?

Recently researchers have observed that people with gum disease were more likely to develop heart disease or have difficulty controlling blood sugar.

Other studies showed that women with gum disease were more likely than those with healthy gums to deliver preterm, low birth weight babies.

Risk factors for gum disease

The main cause of periodontal (gum) disease is plaque, but other factors affect the health of your gums by influencing how your body responds to plaque.


older people have the highest rates of gum disease


Tobacco users have an increased risk of gum disease


people with a family history of gum disease are more susceptible to gum disease


is a risk factor for gum disease. Research demonstrates that stress can make it more difficult for the body to fight off infection, including periodontal diseases.


some drugs, such as anti-convulsants and certain heart medicines, can affect your oral health.


Clenching or grinding your teeth can put excess force on the supporting tissues of the teeth and could speed up the rate at which these periodontal tissues are destroyed.


Heart disease, diabetes, and rheumatoid arthritis can interfere with the body’s inflammatory system and may worsen the condition of the gums.


A diet low in important nutrients can compromise the body’s immune system and make it harder for the body to fight off infection. In addition, research has shown that obesity may increase the risk of periodontal disease.
