Gum

Overview

 

Periodontal (gum) illness is an infection of the tissues that hold your teeth in situ.

It's usually caused by poor brushing and flossing habits that enable plaque—a sticky film of bacteria—to build au courant the teeth and harden.

In advanced stages, disease will cause sore, bleeding gums; painful chew problems; and even tooth loss.

 

Symptoms of gum disease include:

 

  • Bad breath that won’t go away
  • Red or swollen gums
  • Tender or bleeding gums
  • Painful chewing
  • Loose teeth
  • Sensitive teeth
  • Receding gums or longer appearing teeth
