Gum Care (Periodontics)

Gum Care - Mont Albert Dental Surgery

Gum disease, including gingivitis and periodontal disease, is primarily caused by the presence of plaque. When plaque accumulates on teeth and extends to the gum line, it has the potential to irritate or infect the gum tissue. Gingivitis, the initial stage of gum disease, is often marked by symptoms such as redness, swelling, itching, or bleeding gums. Prompt intervention by visiting your dentist and enhancing your oral hygiene practices can typically address gingivitis effectively.

However, if left untreated, gum disease can progress to the advanced stage known as periodontitis. During this phase, it poses a greater threat as it begins to harm the supportive structures of the teeth, potentially leading to tooth loss. Monitoring and early intervention are crucial in preventing the progression of gum disease to more severe stages.
