Gum Disease

Gum disease accounts for approximately 70% of all tooth loss in adults. Early signs of gum disease include bleeding gums when flossing or brushing and gums that are red, inflamed, or swollen. Gum disease is also called periodontal disease.

What causes Periodontal Disease?


Gum disease and tooth decay are caused by the same bacteria. These bacteria form plaque beneath the gum-line, which eats away at the bond between tooth and gum. If deterioration is allowed to continue, "pockets" form in between the teeth and the gums. Pockets deeper than 3ml may require special treatment to remove the bacteria and plaque. Without treatment and continuous maintenance, gum disease will eventually weaken the bonds that hold the teeth in place.

How to Treat Gum Disease


There is no permanent treatment for gum disease. However, it can be kept under control with proper personal hygiene and regular visits to Dr. Cemarka.
