You might notice that you have bleeding gums, bad breath, receding gums or loose teeth depending on how advanced the disease has become. If you are experiencing any of these symptoms you should not delay seeing a dentist.
Typical causes of gum disease include poor oral hygiene, weak immunity, health conditions or diseases, medications, oral injury and/or lifestyle factors such as an unbalanced diet and smoking. Although these multiple factors can trigger gum disease, plaque residue to which bacteria attach and grow is the main cause.
For this reason, it is vital to maintain regular oral hygiene through daily teeth brushing and flossing, as well as regular dental check-ups and professional teeth cleaning. Plaque develops into solid tartar that can only be removed safely without oral damage by a dentist through teeth cleaning, scaling and polishing.
