ToothHQ™ Dental Specialists
Gum disease affects tissues surrounding the teeth. An inflammatory condition, gum disease can lead to red, swollen and bleeding gums at its earliest stage known as gum disease (gingivitis).
Gums beginning to pull back from tooth, bone loss, halitosis, and/or potential loss of tooth can be a more advanced gum disease (periodontitis).
Approximately 75% of adults suffer from some form of gum disease.
Gum disease can be identified as a drop of blood on your toothbrush after brushing your teeth. If left untreated, gum disease can result in the gums being inflamed, causing the tissue and bone around your teeth to deteriorate. If you don’t seek treatment quickly, you could permanently damage your gums, resulting in a deterioration of your oral health. This could cause other health issues, like heart disease, diabetes, or stroke.
