Yes, Teenagers Can Get Gum Disease

dca-blog_gum-disease

If you think teens are too young to develop serious gum disease, you’ve got the facts all wrong. Gum disease, also called periodontal disease, can start at any age. All it takes are a few bad habits to set the stage for embarrassing bad breath, tooth pain, and even tooth loss. Fortunately, if you’re developing early-stage gum disease, it’s reversible with good dental care. If you’re not sure about the health of your teeth and gums, ask your parents to consult your local family dentistry clinic. All it takes is a skilled, affordable dentist to help you manage gum disease.

If you have any of the following symptoms or risk factors, schedule a check-up with a dentist in Roswell as soon as possible.

5 Common Symptoms of Gum Disease

  1. Gums that bleed when brushing or flossing
  2. Gums that are sore, red, or swollen
  3. Gums that pull away from teeth
  4. Teeth that are loose
  5. Chronic bad breath

7 Risk Factors for Gum Disease in Teenagers

  1. Practicing inconsistent dental care
  2. Consuming a diet high in sugar and starch
  3. Wearing braces
  4. Being a female
  5. Having an inherited tendency
  6. Being diabetic
  7. Using tobacco

There’s a lot you can do to stop gum disease in its tracks. Brush twice a day for at least two minutes, floss daily, eat a healthy diet, and see your family dentistry expert regularly.

If you have advanced gum disease, your dentist in Roswell can treat it in several ways. Scaling or root planing is a deep-cleaning process that removes the irritating, bacteria-laden plaque and tartar that’s responsible for gum inflammation. If infection is present, antibiotics or medicated rinses or gels will help kill bacteria. In severe cases, gum surgery can correct diseased gum tissues and restore your healthy smile.
