Gum Disease Claims

Gingivitis or gum disease can occur when there is a plaque build-up on your teeth which causes a gum inflammation. Naturally forming on teeth, plaque is a bacteria film that is completely colourless. When plaque is not removed it can result in your gums becoming swollen and very red. Two noticeable symptoms of this are bad breath, also known as halitosis, and blood when brushing your teeth.
The bone that is used to connect your teeth and jaw may be permanently affected if gum disease is not treated. Loss of teeth, pain, loosened teeth and infections in the gum can also be the result of periodontal disease that is left untreated. Unfortunately, it is not always easy to detect gum disease until it is too late, as pain often does not come until an advanced stage.

If advanced, your dentist may have to undertake treatments such as deep scaling, sometimes under the gumline to take away any deposits of calculus that may have developed. As the tooth becomes cleaner, the inflammation will disappear and the gums will tighten up around the tooth again.
