Advanced Prevention of Gum Disease

gum disease

Gum disease is an infection of the supporting tissues of the teeth. It is the leading cause of tooth loss among adults and affects one out of two Americans over the age of 30, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).  That’s 64.7 million people suffering from some form of gum disease—a condition that is highly preventable in most cases. Dedication to routine dental care habits such as twice-daily brushing, once-daily flossing, and twice-yearly visits to an affordable dentist in Marietta can prevent gum disease. Learn the signs and symptoms of gum disease and how to ensure you keep all your teeth throughout your life.

It is not always easy to spot gum disease, so regular visits to a dentist in Marietta are very important. Knowing the causes and symptoms of gum disease can help you avoid it.

Causes of Gum Disease

  • Smoking or chewing tobacco
  • Hormonal fluctuations during puberty, pregnancy, and menopause
  • Diabetes
  • Genetics
  • Neglecting dental care habits
  • Some prescription medications
  • Crooked teeth that make cleaning difficult

Signs and Symptoms of Gum Disease

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

The first stage of gum disease is gingivitis. Gingivitis symptoms include red, swollen gums. Gingivitis occurs when plaque and tartar have built up along the gum line, causing inflammation and potential infection. At this beginning stage, gum disease is highly treatable, but you must visit your dentist in Marietta regularly and practice diligent dental care to protect the health of your teeth and gums.

If the tissue in the mouth can no longer fight bacteria and infection, gum disease—periodontitis—sets in. At this point, damage has already occurred, eroding the gum tissue and bone that support the teeth, and the disease can progress quickly and little can be done reverse any damage. Chronic periodontitis can lead to tooth loss and change the structural appearance of the face and mouth with continued decline.

Since gum disease can occur without any warning signs, routine visits to an affordable dentist in Marietta can ensure that you are aware if you have the condition. Practice a healthy dental care regimen by eating a diet low in sugars and starches; brushing at least twice every day; flossing once a day; and seeing a dentist at least every six months. Proper dental care can mean the difference between an award-winning smile and a toothless grin.
