If you’ve ever noticed that your gums are red, or you’ve experienced irritation in them, then you have had gum disease.

So much attention is paid to the health of your teeth, and that is with good cause. But your gums form the foundation for them. If they are fail you, then there it does not matter what the condition of your teeth are. 19145 gum disease is the result of the acids in the bacterial agents dental plaque and tartar. They are fueled by the sugars and starches in your diet. Gingivitis is the first stage of gum disease. That’s where you have redness and irritation, as noted earlier. Fortunately, the solution for it is simple and effective. The same teeth cleaning that you get for your routine six month oral examination is what reverses the effects of gingivitis. Sometimes a second round of cleaning is necessary for optimal results, but the bottom line is that your gums will return to their normal state of wellness. An even more vital outcome is that gum disease will not progress to the later stage. Periodontitis can be considered chronic or aggressive. If it’s the latter, it moves quickly, often due to an underlying situation, such as diabetes or heart disease. Among the detectable symptoms are bleeding of the gums when you brush your teeth, consistently bad breath, and receding gums. This is all do to inflammation, which can become infection. If so, you will be prone to the loss of gum and bone tissue. Your tooth may even come loose. That’s why it is important to get attention for it promptly in the form of a periodontal cleaning.
