Inflamed Gums

photo for inflamed gums for evolve toothbrush, best for enflamed gumsInflamed gums is the quintessential symptom of gingivitis, the first stage of gum disease, also known as periodontal disease. Gingivitis is not same as Periodontal disease. Periodontal disease is a condition in which the gums, deeper supporting tissue and even the bones around your teeth become infected.

With gingivitis, plaque – the filmy residue from your food and drink  – builds up on your teeth. If you’re not brushing and flossing regularly to remove this build-up, it accumulates and hardens beneath the gum line into tartar.  This hard material is more difficult to clean, and usually needs a professional dental cleaning to be rid of it. Eventually it leads to inflamed gums, that begin to bleed when you brush or floss.

Did you know that one in ten sufferers of gum disease develop more serious mouth issues?  That’s why it’s vital to be diligent about your oral health. If your inflamed gums begin to bleed, if they cause pain, then the infection has likely spread to deeper bone and tissues and to a more serious stage of gum disease called periodontitis.   And periodontitis can lead to destruction in your mouth, including severe tooth loss.

So grab the bull by the horns, and if you notice you have red, swollen inflamed gums, and any of the other gingivitis symptoms including chronic bad breath, receding gums, loose teeth, a bad taste in your mouth or gum bleeding while you brush  – see your dentist immediately.  He or she will will give a professional cleaning and examination and together you will determine exactly what’s wrong with your gums and the best plan going forward.
