    Posted: 11 Sep 2014 at 10:24pm
Gum disease is an inflammation of the gums that can progress to affect the bone that surrounds and supports your teeth. The bacteria in plaque, is a sticky, colorless film that constantly forms on your teeth.
Plaque can build up and the bacteria infect not only your gums and teeth, but eventually the gum tissue and bone that support the teeth.

Stages of Gum Disease:

Gingivitis: this is the first stage of gum disease, an inflammation of the gums caused by plaque buildup at the gum-line.

The daily brushing and flossing can’t remove the plaque; it produces toxins (poisons) that can irritate the gum tissue, causing gingivitis.
     
You may notice the bleeding during brushing and flossing. The early stage of the gum disease damage can be prevented, since the bone and connective tissue that hold the teeth in place are not yet affected.
     
Following simple basic Oral Hygiene can prevent early stage of gum disease at home.

Brush Your teeth twice a day with a soft brush, Floss daily and rinse with Listerine Mouthwash twice a day.

     
Periodontitis: This is the second stage of Gum disease, the supporting bone and fibers that hold your teeth in place are irreversibly damaged.

Your gums may begin to form a pocket below the gumline, which traps food and plaque. Proper dental treatment and oral care routine at home can usually help to prevent further damage.

Symptoms of Gum Disease

     Gum disease can occur at any age, but it is most common among adults. If detected in its early stages, gum disease can be reversed so see your dentist if you notice any of the following symptoms:


What Are The Common Signs and Symptoms of Periodontal Disease?

•     Bleeding gums when brushing and flossing
•     Red, swollen, puffy-looking or tender gums
•     Teeth that look longer because your gums have receded
•     Pus secretes from between the teeth and gums
•     Shaky teeth
•     Teeth appearing to drift apart from its original position
•     Teeth that look longer because your gums have receded
•     Receding gum line (gum recession)
•     Constant bad breath or a bad taste in your mouth
          

Treatment of Gum Disease :
          The early stages of gum disease can often be reversed with proper brushing and flossing. Good oral health will help keep plaque from building up.

          A professional cleaning by your dentist or hygienist is the only way to remove plaque that has built up and hardened into tartar. Your dentist or hygienist will clean or "scale" your teeth to remove the tartar above and below the gumline.


By scheduling regular checkups, the early stage gum disease can be treated before it leads to a much more serious condition. You can follow basic oral hygiene steps at home by brushing twice a day, flossing every day and rinsing with Listerine Mouthwash.


Healthy Gums - healthy gums are firm and don't bleed. They fit snugly around the teeth.


Gingivitis - gums are mildly inflamed, may appear red or swollen and may bleed during brushing.

Periodontitis - gums begin to separate and recede from the teeth. This allows plaque to move toward the roots, supporting fibers and bone.

If you're not already doing it, make certain you brush and floss at least twice a day. This will help reduce the amount of plaque buildup on your teeth. As you may know, plaque buildup is usually the cause of gum disease. Rinse your mouth with a mouthwash that's used to treat gingivitis. Also if the problem increases it is recommend to visit a good dental clinic to avoid the problems in future.

There are very easy to cure the gum problems and oral care.
You can brush your teeth twice a day (with a fluoride toothpaste).
Floss regularly to remove plaque from between teeth. ...
Visit the dentist routinely for a check-up and professional cleaning.
Don't smoke.

If you have major tooth problem so you have to visit your dentist once. or even if you want to look into a consultation I highly recommend visiting Dentzz. The clinic is currently located in Mumbai, Delhi and Dubai.http://www.guiltybytes.com/2016/09/my-visit-and-review-of-dentzz-dental.html
