Broxbourne Dental Care

Gum disease (or periodontal disease) is one of the most common infectious diseases in the world. An inflammatory disease caused by bacterial infection, if left untreated it can lead to pain, discomfort and tooth loss. With just a few extra minutes brushing and flossing every day, you can keep bacteria at bay, helping to create a happier and healthy mouth now and into the future.

What Is Gingivitis And Periodontitis?

Gingivitis is the early stage of gum disease. It is a reversible inflammation of the gums mainly caused by plaque irritation. If left untreated, Gingivitis can progress into periodontitis. Periodontitis is an advanced stage of gum disease affecting the supporting structure of your tooth. This leads to the development of periodontal or gingival pockets that plaque and tartar further accumulate. If still left untreated, the bone that holds your tooth in place will also be gradually destroyed resulting in tooth loss.

Understanding Gum Disease

Gum disease has often been labelled as the ‘silent disease’ due to the fact that most people are unaware they have it. Many patients only become aware of their symptoms once the disease is advanced. By recognising the early signs of gum disease, you can avoid further deterioration of the gums and bone and prevent tooth loss.

The Signs And Symptoms Of Gum Disease

The early symptoms of gum disease include:

  • Change in gum colour from pale pink to deep redness
  • Round swollen gum margin
  • Bleeding gums
  • Bad breath
