Gum disease, also known as the Periodontal disease, is caused by plaque, a film of bacteria which forms on the surface of the teeth and gums ever day. Many of the bacteria in plaque are completely harmless, but there are some those have been shown to be the primary cause of gum disease.

Why are healthy gums important?
Most people assume their gums are healthy and spend time on more pressing problems. But the health of your gums may affect your physical health.
Over the years, people with periodontal disease have been found to be at higher risk for cardiovascular disease, diabetes, chronic respiratory disease, pregnancy complications, and dementia.
What are the signs of gum disease?
- Gums are bleeding when you brush or eat hard foods
- Bad breath or a bad taste in your mouth
- Gum recession (the teeth appear longer) with increased sensitivity to hot and cold
- In the later stages of gum, disease gaps may appear between your teeth, become loose and eventually be lost
