Periodontal diseases? Don't to worry about it !

Periodontal disease or gum disease as it’s often called is when an infection causes inflammation of the gums, destruction of the periodontal ligament, and supporting bone. In advanced cases, teeth can loosen and fall out because of the gum movement and loss of bone. Simple lifestyle changes such as a great diet, good oral health routine combined with gum care, and risk assessment by your dental professional can help limit the risk of gum disease developing or progressing.

Some dentists say there are four stages of periodontal disease, while others believe it’s three with the middle stages combined. 

  • Gingivitis 
  • Slight periodontal disease
  • Moderate periodontal disease
  • Advanced periodontal disease

Gingivitis is the first stage of periodontal disease and is the name given to red, swollen, and bleeding gums. Inflammation of the gums is common and fairly harmless in the early stages. This is the only stage of periodontal disease that’s reversible. When the inflammation spreads to other parts of the periodontium that gingivitis becomes the more harmful periodontal disease.  The build-up of plaque near the gum is a common cause of gingivitis so the best way to avoid it is maintaining good oral hygiene. Improved oral hygiene and regular visits to the dentist can help control gingivitis and reduce the chance of it becoming a periodontal disease.
