What is Gum Disease?

Gum disease is a progressive infection caused by built-up bacterial plaque and tartar. In most cases, it begins as gingivitis, which consists of inflammation and irritation of the gums. At this stage, gum disease is easy to treat with good oral hygiene. Our team will also perform a deep cleaning (called scaling and root planing) to remove the built-up plaque and tartar.

If left untreated, gingivitis can progress into its advanced stage, called periodontitis. Periodontitis can result in receding gums and permanent damage to the tissues that support your teeth. Severe periodontitis can also lead to tooth loss. Advanced gum disease is a leading cause of tooth loss in adult patients.

If you notice changes in your gums or how your teeth fit together, call your trusted Tucson dentists for gum disease treatment today.

What Causes Gum Disease?

In most cases, gum disease caused by the growth of bacterial plaque and tartar in your mouth. This is the result of poor oral hygiene and failing to attend regularly scheduled cleanings. Plaque and tartar on the teeth cause infections that attack the gums and surrounding tissues.

  • Stress
  • Family history
  • Smoking and tobacco use
  • Alcohol use
  • Certain medications
  • Diabetes
  • Hormonal changes (due to puberty, pregnancy or menopause)

Do I Have Gum Disease?

Gingivitis is a common condition that affects most adults at some point in their lives. It often presents without painful signs or symptoms, which is why many patients don’t realize anything is wrong until their oral health is negatively affected. This is why it’s so important to visit your dentist regularly to check for signs of gum disease.

If you experience one or more of the following symptoms, be sure to schedule a visit or call us today:

  • Gums that bleed easily when brushing and flossing
  • Red, swollen, or puffy gums
  • Tender gums
  • Receding gums
  • Changes in the bite (how the teeth come together)
  • Persistent bad breath or bad in taste mouth
  • The formation of pockets between the teeth and gums
  • Pus between the teeth and gums
  • Loose teeth

Our team will perform a thorough exam to determine the extent of your gum disease and design a treatment plan to meet your needs.
