Gum Care and Periodontal Dentistry

Periodontal disease is an often – overlooked condition for most people. Many seems to have accepted that bleeding gums when brushing or flossing is quite normal when in fact, it is actually a sign of a much more serious condition.

Gingivitis is a stage of periodontal disease that affects the gums and leads to swelling tenderness and bleeding. This happens as bacteria infects the gum area round the teeth. If left untreated, it can infect other tissue structures in the mouth, eventually leading to tooth loss. Early signs of gingivitis are often overlooked, so the conditions worsens before it is eventually diagnosed and treated.

Studies have shown the other disease can be linked to gum infection, such as atherosclerosis or heart disease, strokes, premature births, diabetes, and even respiratory disease, which is more common with the elderly. These and other findings make an even stronger case for early prevention of and cure for gingivitis and its long-term effects to overall personal health.

Aside from the medical issues that it may cause, gingivitis can also cause bed breath, which is unpleasant and can effect one’s confidence and serious breath issue. Breath is a trunoff and may even effect your relations with friends and other people. It also gives a bad impression of your health habits. Simple but regular habit of brushing, flossing, and gargling helps prevent bacterial build-up & keeps your gums healthy and your breath fresh.

Preventions is always better than a cure, and the same goes for periodontal disease and gingivitis. By maintaining a constant oral care habit which includes flossing, plus with regular visits to dentist for cleaning and checkups- you can keep your gums healthy and prevent the progression of any gum decay.
