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.
