What is gum disease?

Gum disease is called periodontitis or periodontal disease. It is an infection of the soft tissues that hold your teeth in place. This infection begins with a bacterial growth in your mouth and if not treated on time will further infect the bones that support your teeth and it can cause bigger problems for your mouth.

A mild gum infection known as ‘Gingivitis’. Majority of people experience ‘gingivitis’ at some point of time in their lives. Best part is you can reverse the gingivitis by simply brushing, flossing regularly and visiting your dentist every 6 months for check-ups & cleaning.

But when this ‘Gingivitis’ is ignored and not treated, it causes ‘Periodontitis’ (gum disease) which is a serious gum infection. In this case, the inner layer of the gum and bone get away from the teeth and form pockets, these small spaces collect debris and can become infected. As the infection spreads, the pockets deepen and more gum tissue and bone get infected and destroyed. It is a leading cause of tooth loss in adults.

What causes gum disease?

Improper brushing and poor oral hygiene is the primary reason for a person to have a gum disease. However, there are other factors that can also lead to gum problems:

1. Hormonal changes happening during puberty, menusration, pregnancy, menopause, make gums more sensitive to develop gingivitis.

2. Medication can affect oral health as it lessens the flow of saliva which protects the teeth and gums. Some anticonvulsant drugs cause abnormal growth of gum tissues.

3. Bad Habits like smoking make gum tissues weak to repair itself.

4. Family history of dental disease can also cause gum disease.
