Frequently Asked Questions

What are the periodontal disease?

Periodontal diseases are a group of diseases that affect the tissues surrounding the tooth. They are inflammatory diseases caused by infection, and if left untreated, they can lead to tooth loss.

How does periodontal disease begin?

A periodontal disease begins with inflammation of the gums, known as gingivitis. If not properly treated, it can progress to a more advanced stage called periodontitis.

What are the symptoms?

Common symptoms of periodontal disease include red, swollen, or sensitive gums, bleeding gums during brushing or flossing, persistent bad breath, tooth mobility, and tooth sensitivity.

What causes periodontal disease?

The main cause of periodontal disease is the accumulation of bacterial plaque on the teeth and gums. Bacterial plaque is a sticky, transparent film that constantly forms on the teeth and contains bacteria that irritate the gums. If the plaque is not properly removed through good oral hygiene practices, it can harden and turn into tartar, which further worsens inflammation and damages the periodontal tissues.

Is periodontal disease related to other health conditions?

Yes, periodontal disease has been associated with other health conditions such as heart disease, diabetes, respiratory diseases, pregnancy complications, and certain types of cancer. Chronic inflammation in the gums can contribute to inflammation in other parts of the body, which can increase the risk of developing these conditions.

Who is at risk of developing periodontal disease?

Anyone can develop periodontal disease, but some risk factors include poor oral hygiene, smoking, genetics, stress, poor nutrition, uncontrolled diabetes, hormonal changes (such as during pregnancy or menopause), and certain medications that reduce saliva production.
