PREVENT GUM DISEASE
PREVENTION OF GUM DISEASE COMES FROM GOOD ORAL HYGIENE PLUS REGULAR VISITS TO YOUR DENTIST
Gum disease is the number one cause of tooth loss amongst adults. It is caused by an excessive build up plaque (a film of bacteria) which then hardens to form tartar. This leads to gingivitis where the gums surrounding the teeth become red and inflamed. Usually the gums will bleed when you brush your teeth.
Periodontal disease, which is more severe, occurs when the problems associated with gingivitis are allowed to develop. Several types of periodontal disease exist, all of which affect the tissues supporting your teeth. If left untreated, the affected teeth may eventually be lost.
Prevention of gum disease is through good oral hygiene, along with regular visits to the dentist.
