Poor foundations lead to loose teeth, red or swollen gums, and bleeding while brushing. These are all signs of gum disease called gingivitis. When periodontal disease is left untreated, it might spread into the entire surrounding area of the tooth, which might cause loss of the tooth.
Whilst it is important to have regular brushing of your teeth, it is highly recommended that you have regular tooth and gum cleaning by a dentist. Deep cleaning done by your dentist will help you to maintain healthy, strong teeth.
Healthy gums are light pink in color, although the exact color depends on an individual. In healthy gums, there should not be any swelling or bleeding. While during flossing and brushing, there should not be any bleeding, gum bleeding is a sign of gum disease.
If you notice any gum swelling or gum bleeding, visit Dr. Renu Dental Clinic for diagnosis and treatment.
At an early stage, gum diseases are reversible, but in the case of being left untreated, this may lead to pain, tooth loss, or bad breath. You will benefit from periodontal treatment by your dentist if you consult early. Regular visits with the dentist are important to catch disease at an early stage. That will prevent disease advancement.
After a periodontal treatment, your gums become healthier and stronger, which will help to keep your teeth longer.
