Unveiling the Reality of Gum Disease
Gum disease, also known as periodontal disease, is a prevalent condition among adults. Rest assured, you’re not alone in this journey.
Understanding the Causes
Plaque is the primary culprit behind gum disease, but various other factors contribute to gum health. Age, smoking, genetics, stress, medications, and nutrition play pivotal roles in the development and progression of periodontal disease.
From Inflammation to Serious Conditions
Periodontal disease encompasses a spectrum ranging from simple gum inflammation to severe conditions that cause significant damage to the supportive soft tissue and bone around your teeth. The trajectory of your gum disease hinges on your daily oral care routine.
Diving Deeper into Periodontal Disease
If left untreated, gingivitis progresses to periodontitis – an inflammation that extends around the tooth. This results in the formation of pockets between the gums and teeth, fostering infection. As plaque spreads below the gum line, the body’s immune response combats bacteria. However, bacterial toxins and the body’s reaction to infection gradually degrade the bone and connective tissue anchoring teeth. Without intervention, teeth support structures are compromised, potentially leading to tooth loss.
