Dentist dissussing periodontal gum diseaseGum disease is usually caused by plaque, a sticky film of bacteria that constantly forms on teeth. If plaque is not removed with daily brushing and cleaning between teeth, gums can become irritated and inflamed. The irritated gum tissue can separate from the teeth and form spaces called pockets. Bacteria move into the pockets where they continue to promote irritation. Left untreated, the process can continue until the bone and other tooth-supporting tissues are destroyed.

Swollen, red and bleeding gums are signs of periodontal or gum disease. The early stage of periodontal disease is called gingivitis, and often results in red and swollen gums that may bleed easily. Left untreated, these periodontics – gum disease conditions can affect your total health, contributing to heart disease and other serious illnesses.
