Gum disease, also known as periodontal disease is an infection caused by bacteria and our immune systems. When plaque builds up on the teeth, the bacteria irritate and inflame the gum tissues. If this condition is not treated gingivitis occurs, it can develop into periodontitis which is the more advanced stages of gum disease.

What are common symptoms ?

  • Gingivitis is characterized by red bleeding and swollen gums but no discomfort. Gingivitis can usually be controlled and even reversed with professional cleanings and improved with at-home oral care if the condition is diagnosed and treated early.
  • Periodontitis additionally involves recession and can eventually lead to bone loss and tooth loss. Periodontitis generally requires more involved, frequent treatment.

What are the main causes?

  • Lack of proper brushing / flossing
  • Poor diet (high sugar intake)
  • Smoking
  • Genetics may be a factor
  • Certain medications
