We often associate an attractive smile with beautiful teeth, however, a truly balanced smile must also include healthy gums.

Gum disease, or periodontitis, is caused by microorganisms which flourish on tooth surfaces, and affects millions of people. These microorganisms cause inflammation of the gum tissue and slowly erode bone structure around the roots of teeth. Ultimately, gum disease can lead to pain and tooth loss!

Signs of gum disease may include:

  • Bleeding gums while brushing or flossing
  • Redness and/or swelling of gum tissue
  • Bad breath
  • Receding gums
  • Loose teeth

What are the effects of gum disease?

The effects of periodontitis can extend beyond the teeth and gums: Blood contaminated with bacteria is able to travel and invade other body systems and organs. Also, direct links exist between periodontitis and damage to heart valves, certain cancers, digestive problems, and other serious health issues.
