What Is Gum Disease?

Gum disease is a term that applies to a number of conditions that affect the supporting tissues of your teeth. Your supporting tissues include the gum areas that you can see, as well as the tissues in your bone, the roots and the ligaments between the teeth and bone.

What Causes Gum Disease?

Your mouth is full of bacteria that take the form of plaque, a clear glue like substance in your mouth. Plaque accumulates on the surfaces of your mouth and teeth and if it is not remove, hardened and forms a substance called tartar over time.

Tartar can only be professionally removed by your dentist.Other factors that increase your risk profile for developing gum disease include:

● Smoking
● Pregnancy
● Stress
● Diabetes
● Hereditary

How Does Gum Disease Present?

In many cases gum disease can present without symptoms but the most common include red, itchy, swollen or bleeding gums. Early intervention and treatment is required to stop gum disease from progressing rapidly.

The first stage of gum disease is gingivitis, which typically presents with red swollen, bleeding gum. This is reversible if caught early enough and managed properly.

Periodontitis is a more advanced stage of gum disease that affects your ligaments and bone. It can cause permanent damage to your soft tissues and if it is not treated, may lead for the formation of abscesses and tooth loss.
