Have you been suffering from bleeding gums, bad breath, bad taste in your mouth, swollen and painful gums? If the answer to any of these is Yes, then you may be suffering from gum disease. Gum disease can cause systemic problems like diabetes and heart problems.
There are two stages of gum disease:
Stage 1 – Gingivitis – Gingivitis is the mild form of gum disease and can result from the build-up of plaque between your teeth which usually results in bleeding from brushing, bad breath. Gingivitis is reversible with early intervention. Regular 6 monthly cleans are recommended to prevent gingivitis.
Stage 2 – Periodontitis – Periodontitis is the advanced stage of gum disease and can cause destruction of the gums and the supporting bone. It is irreversible damage and can only be stabilized and requires deep-clean by dentist or specialist.
