Understanding Gum Disease
Gum disease starts when the plaque on the teeth at the gum line is not sufficiently removed. Over time the buildup of bacteria results in inflamed gums causing Gingivitis. This is an early stage of gum disease that can be remedied with regular and consistent brushing. If left untreated, Gingivitis develops into Periodontitis which is a more advanced version of gum disease. When this occurs, the gums begin to recede and the pockets that form become infected. Teeth can become affected and may even need to be removed in some instances.
