We generally get worked up if we see blood coming out of our hands or nose, but ignore when our gums are bleeding. Bleeding gums are an alarming sign of bacterial infection in your mouth. This infection can spread if not treated and can damage the structure and support system of the teeth and jawbone. Eventually the teeth will get loose and will have to be extracted. Oral bacterial infection has also led to other health problems like respiratory disorders, strokes, diabetes, etc. The root cause of periodontal disease is bacterial attack and dental plaque. In order to protect the gums and teeth from the bacterial infection, our immune system releases a substance that damages the gums and ligaments. This results in bleeding and swollen gums. All this also leads to loosening of teeth, which is an extreme periodontics condition. Such cases can be prevented by visiting the Dentist frequently and maintaining a good oral hygiene regime. Seeing a dentist once in 6 months is mandatory but if you have regular issues and problem concerning your teeth, you should see the dentist once a month without fails. If periodontal disease are taken lightly and not treated, it can lead to damaged ligament, distorted structure and bones which support the teeth.
The major cause of this disease is listed below -
Genes - These problems can be hereditary, but that doesn't mean your suffering is inevitable. You can always take good care of your health and visit your dentist regularly to cure the disease and maintain good oral health. Smoking - Those who are frequent smokers have a high risk of periodontal diseases. If you already have this disease, smoking makes it worst. Misaligned teeth - Any situation that makes brushing and flossing difficult, leads to plaque. Plaque leads to severe gum problem. To cure the periodontal disease, one must visit their dentist regularly.
