Gum Treatment

Gum disease is a bacterial growth around the teeth which causes swelling, soreness or infection in tissues supporting the teeth

Gum diseases are subdivided into two stages.

  • Gingivitis
  • Periodontitis

Cause Of Gum Disease

The root cause of gum disease is plaque. Plaque is a film of bacteria that gets formed on the surface of the teeth and gums every day, without you realising

Most of the bacteria in the plaque are harmless. But there are some that cause gum disease. When plaque accumulates in excess, it can harden into a substance called tartar (calculus). This can take less than 24 hours. Tartar is so hard and firmly bound around teeth, that only a professional dentist can remove it during cleaning process.
