Ten things to know about gum disease
Healthy gums should be pink, firm and keep your teeth securely in place. Your gums should not bleed when you touch or brush them.
Gum disease is not always painful and you may be unaware you have it. This is why regular dental check-
Do I have it?
Gum disease can be caused by a number of factors: poor oral hygiene, smoking, age, diabetes, stress, a poor diet and a weakened immune system are the most common identified causes.
Plaque is a sticky film that which builds up on your teeth, formed from natural mouth bacteria combining with small food particles and saliva. This makes gums irritated, inflamed and sore.
Untreated, plaque hardens and forms a nastier substance called tartar. Tartar sticks much more firmly to teeth than plaque and can usually only be removed by a dentist or hygienist.
The first stage of gum disease is called gingivitis, and symptoms can include: red and swollen gums, bleeding gums after brushing or flossing your teeth.
Stage 1: Gingivitis
Untreated gingivitis can cause tissues and bone that support the teeth to weaken. This is known as periodontitis. Symptoms include bad breath, loose teeth that can make eating difficult, and gum abscesses.
Stage 2: Periodontitis
Untreated, periodontitis can cause serious damage to the gums and bone structure leading to loss of teeth. Infections and toxins can enter the blood stream and exacerbate other conditions in other parts of your body.
Stage 3: Advanced Periodontitis
Gum disease has recently been linked with other serious health conditions such as diabetes, strokes, heart disease, pregnancy complications and even dementia.
Minimise the risk of getting gum disease by using a good quality toothbrush and toothpaste, floss regularly, and of course visit your dentist and hygienist regularly for a checkup.
