Gum Problems

What is gum Disease?

Gum disease affects most people at some time during their life. It is usually caused by a build-up of plaque on our teeth. Plaque is a collection of millions of bacteria that cause an infection. The body fights this infection and destroys the gum tissue and ultimately the bone that supports your gums. Once the bone is lost you lose your teeth

Risk Factors for Gums

The following are risk factors for gums:

  • Smoking or chewing tobacco
  • Diabetes
  • Consuming certain medications (oral contraceptives, steroids, anticonvulsants, calcium channel blockers, and chemotherapy)
  • Crooked teeth
  • Dental appliances that fit poorly
  • Broken fillings
  • Pregnancy
  • Genetic factors
  • Compromised immunity (such as HIV/AIDS patients)

What Causes Gums?

Your gums actually attach to the teeth at a lower point than the gum edges that we see. This forms a small space called a sulcus. Food can get trapped in this space and cause a gum infection or gingivitis.

Plaque is a thin film of bacteria. It constantly forms on the surface of your teeth. As plaque advances, it hardens and becomes tartar. You can develop an infection when plaque extends below the gum line.

Left unchecked, gingivitis can cause the gums to separate from the teeth. This can cause injury to the soft tissue and bone supporting the teeth. The tooth may become loose and unstable. If infection progresses, you may ultimately lose your tooth or need a dentist to remove it.
