What Causes Gum Disease?

Gum disease is caused by bacterial plaque growing on the surfaces of your teeth. The bacterial build-up causes infections to develop in your gums, which can then spread to the structures that support your teeth. Plaque (build-up above the gums) and tartar (build-up below the gums) typically result from poor oral hygiene and overall dental healthcare.

A common condition, gum disease affects nearly half of all American adults at some point in their lives. It is one of the leading causes of tooth loss in adults aged 30 and over.

Because gum disease is often painless in its early stages, most patients don’t notice a change in their oral health until their condition worsens. Gum disease presents in two stages: the first stage, gingivitis, and the advanced stage, periodontitis. If left untreated, periodontitis can attack the ligaments and jawbones. This can cause the teeth to loosen, leading to permanent tooth loss.

Do I Have Gum Disease?

Have you noticed a change in your gum health? Here are some signs that it’s time to visit the dentist and talk about gum disease:

  • Your gums bleed easily when brushing and flossing
  • Your gums appear red, swollen, or puffy
  • Your gums are tender to the touch

The early signs of gum disease can be minor, which is why many patients don’t seek treatment. However, the signs of worsening gum disease can have lasting impacts on your oral health. Here are the symptoms you should look out for:

  • Your gum line is receding
  • You experience persistent bad breath or a bad taste in your mouth
  • Your teeth feel loose
  • You experience pain when biting or chewing
  • You see pus between your teeth and gums
  • You notice a change in your bite (where your teeth meet)
