Gum Problems


The teeth remain embedded in jawbone which is covered from outside by gums. Healthy gums are coral pink in color. They remain firmly attached to the underlying bone. Healthy gum can be identified by thin margins firmly adapting over the respective tooth and it does not bleed easily.


What Are The Causes Of Gum Problem?

Plaque build-up on your teeth is the number one cause of periodontal disease. At its most basic level, Periodontal Disease is an infection of the gum tissue. The sulcus or the space between the gum and the teeth is a breeding ground for bacteria. If this is infected, the gums can recede and, over time, can cause tooth loss.

If you are experiencing bleeding gums while brushing your teeth or flossing, pain while chewing, have swollen gums, build up of tartar, your teeth are sensitive to hot and cold, changes in bite, bad breath or have gums that that have withdrawn from the teeth, then you may be suffering from Periodontal Disease.

What If Gum Diseases Are Not Treated In Time?

If the gum diseases are not treated in time, the infection from the gums can spread to involve the underlying bone and may cause loosening or migration of the tooth. The involved tooth/teeth may eventually be lost. Sometimes the infection may cause pus formation that can involve adjoining tissues and may cause swelling, pus discharge, bone infection etc. Chronic gum diseases where pus oozes out of the gum margins (pyorrhea) can affect the general health of a person. Recent scientific studies have shown that the gum infections are associated with heart and lung diseases. In pregnant women, it can lead to low birth weight babies and pre-term labour. Therefore, it is very important that gum diseases are prevented and treated early.
