GUM DISEASE- HOW TO PREVENT IT

Periodontitis is an infection in the gum which causes damage to the soft tissues in the gum and weakens the framework that supports your teeth. Periodontitis results in tooth loss but can also cause several life-threatening complications like a heart attack or a stroke.

How Does Periodontitis Occur?

Periodontitis occurs generally due to poor personal hygiene and oral hygiene. It begins with the development of a plaque which is a thin microbial or bacterial film that forms on your teeth. Plaque mainly forms due to the interaction of the bacteria within the mouth with the various food particles like sugars and starches. Thus brushing your teeth plays a crucial role in the removal of plaque. However, plaque tends to reform quickly and this is why it is very important to brush at least twice a day.
Plaque, if allowed to accumulate for a long period causes severe damage to the teeth and the gums. They can cause inflammations in the mouth which can tend to disrupt the normal structure in the mouth and result in pockets in between the teeth especially where the plaque is formed. The pocket tends to get deeper with further ignorance and eventually reaches the tissues in your gum. This kind of infection can result in damage in the tissues and the underlying bones which results in periodontitis.

Symptoms

The common symptoms of periodontitis generally include bleeding and swollen gums. It is also characterized by bad breath, loosening of the teeth, widening of the spaces between your teeth or a bad taste in the mouth. Sometimes you can also observe the discharge of pus from the gum and the teeth might look longer than usual.

Treatment

The periodontitis treatments depend on the severity of the condition. If the condition is mild, it can be corrected by nonsurgical procedures like scaling or taking certain antibiotics. However, if your condition gets worse, you might have to undergo surgical procedures like tissue grafts or pocket reduction surgery. Periodontitis can also be prevented by maintaining proper oral hygiene.
