Gum Disease

Gum Disease

Gum disease is one of the most common dental diseases for adults. It has three developing stages. If treated at the early stage of gingivitis, it is reversible. If left untreated to develop into periodontal disease, it must be treated immediately, to avoid developing into advanced periodontal disease, which causes teeth to fall loose.

Symptoms of gum disease include bleeding gums, bad breath, swollen or tender gums, loose teeth, or the development of pus around the base of the teeth. Gum disease is caused by bacteria, which leads to the development of plaque. Visiting a dentist every six months and practising good oral hygiene habits can help keep plaque at bay.
