Winning the Battle Against Gum Disease

gum disease

Gum disease affects 75 percent of American adults, only 15 percent of whom are even aware of the condition. While most adults can take measures to prevent it, approximately 30 percent suffer from gum disease due to a genetic predisposition. Yet, even these cases can be carefully managed to prevent full development of gum disease with basic dental care habits. Your dental care routine is essential to preventing, treating, and reversing gum disease. You must know the signs and symptoms of gum disease and what steps you can take to protect your smile year after year.

Since it is not always easy to spot gum disease, routine visits to an affordable dentist in Roswell are very important. Being aware of the causes and symptoms of gum disease can help you prevent it.

The Causes of Gum Disease

  • Smoking or chewing tobacco
  • Skipping daily dental care
  • Certain prescription medications
  • Hormonal changes during puberty, pregnancy, and menopause
  • Diabetes
  • Genetics
  • Misaligned teeth that are difficult to clean

The Symptoms of Gum Disease

  • Red, tender, and swollen gums
  • Gums that bleed easily, including when brushing and flossing
  • Receding gums
  • Loose teeth
  • Chronic bad breath
  • Persistent bad taste in the mouth

Gingivitis is the first stage of gum disease. It occurs when plaque and tartar have built up along the gum line, causing inflammation and leading to infection. Gingivitis symptoms include red, tender, and swollen gums. At this early stage, gum disease is treatable, but you must visit your dentist regularly and practice proper dental care to protect your teeth and gums.

Gum disease—also called periodontitis—begins when the tissue in the mouth can no longer fight bacteria and infection. At this stage, erosion of the gums and bone that support the teeth has occurred, and the disease can progress rapidly, with little that can be done to reverse the damage. Chronic periodontitis can lead to the loss of teeth, changing the structural appearance of the face and mouth.

Gum disease can occur without any signs or symptoms, so be sure to schedule routine visits with an affordable dentist in Roswell. Practicing healthy dental care habits includes eating a nutritious diet, low in sugars and starches; brushing at least twice daily; flossing once daily; and seeing a dentist at least twice a year.
