Gum Disease Treatment
Regular brushing and flossing clean the teeth and remove plaque, tartar, and bacteria from the mouth and help in maintaining good oral hygiene. Ignorance of this leads to grave consequences as gum health is closely related to your overall health. It’s safe to say that poor gum health is linked to serious conditions like cardiovascular diseases and diabetes.
Accumulation of plaque houses bacteria that release toxins, which are known to infect gums. If plaque is not regularly removed from the tooth surface, it hardens to form tartar and seeps below the gum line. Accumulation of plaque below the gum line causes severe infection, which spreads to the tooth roots. As a result, the gums become red and inflamed and start receding. Gum recession causes tooth loss and requires immediate attention.
