Gum periodontal disease Aberdeen

Gum diseases come in two forms gingivitis and periodontal. Swelling, soreness or infection of your teeth, are indications of gum disease and this is the most common problem encountered and treated by your Aberdeen dentist.

If your gums get inflamed i.e. red and swollen and also bleeds when you brush your teeth, then it is likely that you are suffering from gingivitis. If left untreated, gingivitis could lead to periodontal disease. They come in various forms but all attack the tissues that support your teeth. The disease then progresses to loosen the teeth by eroding the bone in the jaw that supports the teeth. Finally you would have no choice but to visit your Aberdeen dentist when your teeth begin to fall out.

Gum disease is a common problem among adults and is the main reason for tooth loss. Since the disease progresses very gradually, there are chances for you to slow down the invasion with proper dental care so that you can live your life with the majority of your teeth still intact.
