Healthy Gums

Your gums are like cushions for your teeth; they encompass the tooth from its crown to its origin in the jaw and aid in maintaining a healthy mouth. Taking care of your gums is equally as essential as caring for your teeth, and gum disease can develop without routine cleanings. The stages of periodontal disease are as follows:

1. Red and swollen gums that bleed when brushed indicate gingivitis, a form of gum disease.

2. If gingivitis is not treated, it can progress into periodontitis, an infection that affects the entire area encircling the tooth and causes discomfort and eating difficulties.

3. This type of infection can eventually cause tooth loss and may necessitate invasive procedures to replace the missing tooth.

Fortunately, this can be avoided by maintaining a good daily hygiene routine and undergoing regular hygiene exams at the practise. Additionally, interdental brushing, flossing, and replacing your toothbrush every three months will improve your periodontal health.
