Dental Hygiene To Treat Gum Disease
A build up of tartar and bacteria on your teeth can result in gum disease. It’s estimated that gum disease, to some degree, affects more than half of all adults in the UK. The most common type is a mild form of gum disease is called gingivitis, where bacteria causes inflammation of the gums and results in them becoming red and swollen, and quick to bleed.
If gingivitis isn’t treated it can advance to periodontitis, where the gum comes away from the teeth and form spaces (called “pockets”) that become infected. If periodontitis is ignored or untreated, the bones, gums, and tissue that support the teeth are destroyed. The teeth may eventually become loose and have to be removed.
