22 December 2014, Dabur Dental Team

Gums are the backbone for our teeth. They are the support system that cover the underlying jawbone & envelope the teeth in a collar-like fashion. They ensure that we chew well, smile easily and look good. However, under certain unforeseen circumstances, many of us end up spoiling our gums or they themselves fall prey to many unfortunate dental problems.

What is gum disease?
Gum disease is an infection of the tissues that surrounds and supports your teeth. It is a major cause of tooth loss in adults. It is usually painless but very severe and critical. It starts with mild to moderate bleeding from the gums and may progress to present with loss of underlying supporting jawbone, pus discharge, loose gums, mobile teeth and eventual tooth loss.

What causes gum disease?
There are various factors that may lead you to this dental problem. Some of them are listed below:

  • Certain medications
  • Smoking
  • Diabetes
  • Substance abuse
  • Poor nutrition
  • Puberty
  • Certain diseases and conditions
  • Hormonal fluctuations
  • Pregnancy
  • Genetics
  • Stress
  • Poor oral hygiene
  • Heredity
  • Diet
  • Infection etc.


What are the symptoms of gum disease?
If you are suffering from gum disease, you may be experiencing swelling, redness, pain, bleeding of the gums, foul breath, discoloured teeth, crooked teeth, receding gum line, abscess/pus formation, formation of deep pockets between the gums and teeth, shifting teeth, etc.

What are the stages of gum disease?

STAGE 1: Gingivitis
This stage is the beginning of gum disease and is easier to treat because it only affects the gums and not the underlying bone. In this stage, bacteria in plaque builds up, causing the gums to become inflamed and to easily bleed during brushing. Although the gums may be irritated, the teeth are still firmly planted in their sockets. No irreversible bone or other tissue damage occurs at this stage. Treatment commenced at this stage is completely curable.

STAGE 2: Periodontitis
Periodontitis is a cascade of problems that can occur when gingivitis is left untreated over a period of time. In this stage, the inner layer of the gum and bone pull away from the teeth and form pockets. These small spaces between teeth and gums collect debris and can become infected resulting in pus discharge. The body's immune system fights the bacteria as the plaque spreads and grows below the gum line. However, the condition may not subside without proper treatment. It is advised to visit the gum specialist at this stage.
