Gingivitis means inflammation of the gums. When the gums around the teeth becomes very red and swollen. Often the swollen gums bleed when you brush your teeth.
Gum disease illustrate a range of conditions that affect the supporting tissues for the teeth. The supporting tissues comprises of both the surface tissues that can be seen in the mouth and also the deeper tissues of the bone, root surface and the ligament that connects the teeth to the bone.
Periodontal disease is caused by bacteria. Bacteria form a ‘plaque’ which is a sticky, colorless film that forms on your teeth, particularly around the gum line. Other bacteria thrive deep in the gap between the gum and the tooth the ‘pocket’. Some people are much more at risk of developing periodontal disease, smoking is one of the major risk factors.
Infection affecting the surface tissues is called Gingivitis. This may progress to affect the deeper supporting tissues and is called periodontitis. The effects of gingivitis are largely reversible with appropriate care. Once this has progressed to periodontitis there is permanent damage to the ligament and bone that supports and holds the teeth.
The most warning signs are bleeding gums when you brush your teeth, bad breath or a bad taste in your mouth, receding gums, sensitive teeth or gums and loose teeth or teeth that have moved.
