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 donβt 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.
