What is Periodontal (Gum) Disease?
Periodontal (Gum) disease is one of the most widespread dental problems adults face in the battle for proper oral hygiene today. It often develops slowly without causing any pain and often patients won’t notice any signs of the disease until they are in danger of losing teeth. The initial stage of this disease is referred to as gingivitis. As gingivitis progresses you may notice your gums start to inflame or swell, your gums will bleed while you brush your teeth, or you may notice a change in the color of your gums. Even with these symptoms your gums will most likely not feel painful or sore.
- Risk Factors for Periodontal (Gum) Disease:
- Bad oral hygiene habits
- Heart Disease
Periodontal (Gum) gum disease can start at just about any age which is why it is a good idea to have a regular check-up with a dental professional. The reason for a regular check-up is that if we can diagnose it early, this disease can almost always be prevented from starting. If it does start it can be treated and can even be turned around or reversed in its early stages.
- Periodontal (Gum) Diseases Prevention:
- Don't use tobacco products
- Get a regular check-up and professional cleaning
