Teens and Gum Disease – It’s Not Just for Adults

dca-blog_gum-disease

Periodontal disease can affect your gums at any age; it’s not just a problem for your parents or grandparents. If you don’t get regular dental care, you could miss important signs of early gum disease that can be reversed with good oral hygiene and professional treatment. When gum disease strikes, you could be dealing with bad breath, frequent tooth pain, and even tooth loss. If you have any of the symptoms or risk factors listed below, visit an affordable dentist to help you stop gum disease before it gets worse.

Gum Disease Symptoms

  • Gums that bleed when brushing or flossing
  • Red, swollen, or sore gums
  • Gums that pull away from teeth
  • Bad breath
  • Loose teeth

Gum Disease Risk Factors for Teens

  • Inconsistent dental care
  • Diet high in sugar and starch
  • Female gender
  • Diabetes
  • Braces
  • Tobacco use
  • Inherited tendency

You can do a lot to prevent the progression of gum disease. Brush twice a day for at least two minutes, floss daily, eat a healthy diet, and see your family dentistry expert regularly. If you already have advanced gum disease, your dentist 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.
