What Causes Gum Disease?

Gum disease is caused by plaque buildup along the gum line. Plaque buildup occurs from food or beverages that get caught between the teeth. The foods or beverages that get stuck between the teeth feed plaque bacteria, and the plaque makes the gums inflamed. This inflammation is the start of gum disease.

How Is Gum Disease Treated?

There are five stages of gum disease; and with each stage, the severity increases. Stage 1 is quite mild, and stage 5 is severe. At stage 1, you may be experiencing bleeding gums when you brush or floss. Your gums may also look red or swollen.

In order to treat these symptoms, we could prescribe brushing and flossing more frequently and a medicated rinse to help kill the bacteria causing the infection. We will also carry out oral cleaning and root planing if required.

How to prevent gum disease

Gingivitis is the earliest stage of gum disease. It’s characterized by red, swollen, or bleeding gums. If gingivitis goes untreated, it could lead to periodontitis. Periodontitis is more severe and is characterized by gum recession and tooth erosion.

If left untreated, gum disease can lead to tooth loss. Patients may also notice a receding gum line, tender and bleeding gums, persistent bad breath, or loose teeth.

Who Is at Risk for Gum Disease?

The short answer is everyone. But, there are certain factors that put some people at higher risk for gum disease.

Awesome experience in my first visit. The hygienist did an incredible job cleaning up my coffee stains and whitening up the smile, and the dentist was clear in her communication! Highly recommend!
courtney frantz
I came in for what I thought was a simple infection to find I needed a wisdom tooth removed. Everyone was so kind in assisting me in the best way and making sure I received the care I needed to get better. I will definitely continue to see them in the future for all my dental needs.

Dale Gardner
I am a new patient to Advanced Dental & Implant Center, so I’m more familiar with Jessie, the hygienist than I am with the dentist. Jessie is amazing! I don’t think I’ve ever had a hygienist who is as caring as she is. The office staff is very helpful, too. So far, I’m very happy with my decision to become a patient at this practice.
Jon Minard
It was my first time going to Advanced Dental & Implant Center. The experience was very pleasant. The office staff, and my dental hygienist, Jessie was the absolute best. Our Dentist was very kind and after a very thorough exam, we were on our way.
