WHAT IS A GUM DISEASE?

Periodontitis, also called gum disease, is a serious gum infection that damages the soft tissue around teeth. Without treatment, periodontitis can destroy the bone that supports your teeth. This can cause teeth to loosen or lead to tooth loss. 
Periodontitis is common but can usually be prevented. It’s often the result of not taking care of your mouth and teeth. To help prevent periodontitis or improve your chance of successful treatment, brush at least twice a day, floss daily and get regular dental checkups.

    SYMPTOMS

    Healthy gums are firm and fit snugly around teeth. The colour of healthy gums can vary. They may range from light pink in some people to dark pink and brown in others. Symptoms of periodontitis can include:

    CAUSES

    In most cases, the development of periodontitis starts with plaque. Plaque is a sticky film mainly made up of bacteria. If not treated, here’s how plaque can advance over time to periodontitis:

    Plaque forms on your teeth

    when starches and sugars in food interact with bacteria commonly found in your mouth. Brushing your teeth twice a day and flossing once a day removes plaque, but plaque quickly comes back.

    Plaque can harden under your gum line into tartar

    if it stays on your teeth. Tartar is more difficult to remove. You can't get rid of it by brushing and flossing; you need a professional dental cleaning to remove it. Because plaque and tartar are filled with bacteria, the longer they stay on your teeth, the more damage they can do.

    Plaque can cause gingivitis

    the mildest form of gum disease. Gingivitis is irritation and swelling of the gum tissue around the base of your teeth. Gingiva is another word for gum tissue. Gingivitis can be reversed with professional treatment and good home oral care, but only if treated early before you have bone loss.

    Ongoing gum irritation and swelling, called inflammation, can cause periodontitis

    Eventually this causes deep pockets to form between your gums and teeth. These pockets fill with plaque, tartar and bacteria and become deeper over time. If not treated, these deep infections cause a loss of tissue and bone. Eventually you may lose one or more teeth. Also, ongoing inflammation can put a strain on your immune system, causing other health problems.

    TREATMENT

    The goal of treatment is to thoroughly clean the pockets around teeth and prevent damage to surrounding gum tissue and bone. You have the best chance for successful treatment when you also have a daily routine of good oral care, manage health conditions that may impact dental health and stop tobacco use.

    NONSURGICAL TREATMENTS

    If periodontitis isn’t advanced, treatment may involve less invasive procedures, including:

    SURGICAL TREATMENTS

    If you have advanced periodontitis, you may need dental surgery, such as:

    PRICE FOR GUM DISEASE TREATMENT
