Gum disease (gingivitis) is inflammation of the gums caused by plaque-producing bacteria that build up on the teeth.
Gingivitis causes bad breath, Gum recession, painful red, swollen, bleeding gums
The severe gum inflammation that spreads to the bones and ligaments that support teeth is called periodontitis and can lead to tooth loss. In addition, the lack of good oral hygiene increases the risk of gingivitis. Smoking, diabetes, pregnancy, genetic factors, and certain medications also increase the risk of gum disease.
Regular cleaning treats gingivitis along with good oral hygiene practice. Periodontitis can be treated with deep cleaning in addition to antibiotic socket irrigation or, in some cases, Picasso laser socket debridement or gum surgery.
