What is Gum Diseases

Gum Diseases is a disease that occurs as a result of infection of the gums due to microbes or bacteria. Infection in the gums, which are infected with bacteria and microbes, cause inflammation and subsequent irritation of the gum tissue.

Many people may experience Gum Disease at some point in their life due to the bacteria and microbes they have taken during their daily life. This gum disease can be treated without surgery at the very beginning of the disease, that is, in the early stages.

However, if the person is not aware of the Gum Disease or if he/she does not see a doctor who is an expert in the field and cares about it, and if the disease has progressed, this disease can cause serious problems. In such cases, surgical methods may be needed for the treatment of Gum Diseases.

As a result of gingival infection and early detection and treatment, the infection damages the soft tissue around the teeth. If this damage is not treated, the bony structure that supports the teeth of the individual, that is, the bony structure that the teeth are attached to, can be destroyed by the current infection.

What is Periodontology

Periodontology is the field that deals with the diseases caused by various infectious causes in the gums or the bony structure surrounding the tooth roots and the treatment of these diseases. Those who have received their expertise in the treatment of Gum Disease are called Periodontists.

Gums are in a very important position for dental and oral health. Various infectious problems that may occur in the gums or tooth loss that may occur as a result of inflammation directly affect the oral and dental health of the person. This situation has the potential to create various problems related to the general health of the person.

For this reason, oral and dental health is extremely important and people should pay attention and have it checked regularly. Early diagnosis and treatment is very important in order not to cause tooth loss due to various problems that occur as a result of Gum Diseases.

Periodontology dentistry specialization provides the continuity of the treatment phase and the continuity of the healthy structure created, while diagnosing Gum Diseases on the one hand.

What Causes Gum Diseases?

It is known that the main cause of Gum Diseases is a layer formed as a result of the combination of uncleaned food residues, called microbial dental plaque, and bacteria from saliva.

Microbial dental plaque creates destruction in the tissues around the teeth, initiating Periodontal Disease and causing Gum Diseases in the person.

Continuous smoking

Gum Diseases is a disease that has the potential to reach the bony structure and has enough negativity that can cause the loss of a person's teeth. For this reason, it is necessary to pay attention to factors that affect gum diseases such as oral care, hygiene and nutrition.

Gum Disease Symptoms

Bacterial plaque, which is a sticky, colorless film layer that constantly forms on the tooth surface, is one of the most common causes of Gum Diseases. If this plaque is not removed, it hardens and turns into calculus.

Bacterial plaque that forms tartar continues to accumulate on the surface of the calculus. Tartars are not a layer that can be removed by brushing teeth or using dental floss. It is a very hard and adherent layer. For this reason, tartar cannot be removed by natural methods. A dentist needs to clean teeth to remove tartar.

Gum Diseases can occur as a result of not cleaning the tartar and the accumulation of bacterial plaque on it. Let's try to briefly explain the question of what are the symptoms of Gum Diseases.

Gum Disease Symptoms include;

  • Bleeding gums when brushing or flossing
  • Swelling, redness or tenderness in the gums,
  • Gums that move away from the tooth structure or are pulled,
  • Persistent bad breath or a bad taste in the mouth, which does not normally occur but develops later,
  • Teeth start to shake on their own even though they don't get any impact or violence,
  • A change in the way your teeth touch each other

What Causes Gum Swelling, How Does It Go?

Gum Swelling occurs when tartar or bacterial plaques remain on the tooth surface for more than a few days and harden. It is very difficult to clean with methods such as tooth brushing and flossing, which we prefer for oral care during daily life.

Plaque and tartar are the most common cause of Gingival Inflammation and subsequently Gingival Swelling.
