What is Gum Disease?

Gum disease, or periodontitis, is a condition that slowly damages the supporting structures of your teeth over time. It starts when plaque is left to build up on the surface of your teeth, which leads to bacteria getting into the gum pockets that surround your teeth. This damages the tissues that secure your teeth in place.

What Leads to Gum Disease?

There are several reasons that you may develop gum disease. Bad oral hygiene, hormonal shifts, stress and genetics can all be contributing factors. When you come to see us for treatment, we will work to determine what has caused your periodontitis to develop. This will help us to develop the most effective treatment plan.

What are the Stages of Gum Disease?

There are three stages of gum disease: Gingivitis, Periodontitis and Advanced Periodontitis.

  • Gingivitis: This is the primary stage of gum disease, occurring when plaque is left to build up at the gumline. This causes the release of toxins that leads to inflammation. A professional cleaning can, in many cases, effectively treat gingivitis.
  • Periodontitis: When gingivitis is left untreated, periodontitis will develop. At this stage, the supporting bone and fibers that secure your teeth in place will start to be badly damaged. Our experienced dentists have treatments available that they can use to prevent further damage.
  • Advanced periodontitis: The worst stage of gum disease, when the fibers and bone supporting your teeth will be destroyed. Your teeth will loosen and shift. Removal is most likely to be the only option at this stage.
