Halt the Dangerous Progression of Gum Disease
Do You Have Tender Gums that Bleed Easily?
If you have noticed that your gums look red or swollen and bleed when you brush and floss, you may have gum disease. Though perhaps nothing more than a nuisance now, gum disease is actually very harmful to your oral and physical health. Your gums are tender and bleeding due to a bacterial infection. When plaque is left to harden into calculus on your teeth, it releases bacteria that infects your gum tissue, making them bleed easily and pull away from your teeth. You need professional treatment from a trained dentist to take care of this infection, as it is only the first stage of gum disease and will become progressively worse over time. In advanced stages, gum disease causes irreversible damage to the gums and bone, leaving teeth at risk of falling out. Gum disease has also been linked to many systemic conditions, including diabetes, respiratory disease, heart disease, and stroke.
