What causes gum trouble?
Gum disease can often be traced back to bad bacteria building up in the mouth.
Germs can build up underneath the gums and harden. This can cause inflamed gums and bone loss around the tooth, in turn leading to bleeding gums, bad breath and loose teeth.
Sometimes, gum disease could also hint at other more severe medical issues such as diabetes. Gum disease has also been associated with health problems such as heart disease, stroke, premature birth and low birth weight in pregnancy, dementia and rheumatoid arthritis.
Routine brushing, flossing and scaling are good for general gingivitis but are insufficient in tackling the more advanced periodonitis.
