What Causes Gum Disease?
GUM DISEASE IS A PROGRESSIVE INFECTION CAUSED BY THE GROWTH OF BACTERIAL GROWTH IN YOUR MOUTH.
It typically begins as gingivitis, which consists of inflammation and irritation of the gums. The inflammation results in gums that are puffy, tender, and bleed easily when brushing and flossing. At this stage, gum disease is easy to treat with good oral hygiene and a deep cleaning (called scaling and root planing) to remove the build-up of bacterial plaque and tartar.
If left untreated, gingivitis can progress into its advanced stage, called periodontitis. Periodontitis can result in receding gums and permanent damage to the structures that support your teeth. Severe periodontitis can also lead to tooth loss in adult patients. This is why it is essential to contact your trusted local dental team for prompt, effective gum disease treatment.
DO I HAVE GUM DISEASE?
Gingivitis often presents without painful symptoms, which is why many patients don’t realize anything is wrong until their condition worsens. If you experience one or more of the following symptoms, be sure to schedule a visit to Clermont Dental:
- Gums that bleed easily when brushing and flossing
- Red, swollen, or puffy gums
- Tender gums
- Receding gums
- Changes in the bite (how the teeth come together)
- Persistent bad breath or bad in taste mouth
- The formation of pockets between the teeth and gums
- Pus between the teeth and gums
- Loose teeth
Our dentist will perform a thorough exam to determine the extent of your gum disease and design a treatment plan to meet your needs.
