- Gum disease is a condition that effects the supporting structure around your teeth. It can be caused by any number of factors.
It is very important to take good care of your gums at all times. Maintaining healthy gums is important to your overall health, so make sure you floss and brush your teeth regularly to avoid a build-up of bacteria in your mouth.
These bacteria can form plaque on your teeth, which can cause your gums to be infected and inflamed. For most people in the early stages, gum disease or gingivitis doesn’t cause much pain, but if left untreated, it can progress to periodontal disease. This is can lead to your dentist having to remove your tooth.
Failing to practice quality oral health care can lead to gum disease. At Pure Smiles, we are dedicated to making sure our patients make the best choices and ensure their teeth and gums stay in good condition for life.
Some of the clear signs and symptoms of gum disease include bleeding gums, tooth mobility and gum recession. Gum disease becomes more common as you get older, so it’s important to take extra care of your teeth as you age. Also, those who have a family history of gum disease are more at risk. But with the correct dental hygiene, it can easily be avoided.
Always maintain a healthy diet as this is one of the best ways to prevent gum disease. It is possible to have gum disease without experiencing any key symptoms. That’s why you must have regular check-ups with your dentists to spot any problems.
