How To Cure Gum Disease

Cure Gum DiseaseGum disease is quite common among the average adult. It can range from simple gum inflammation to serious diseases that can damage the soft tissue in the gums and the bone that supports the tooth. In severe cases there is ultimate loss of tooth. The bacteria which are for ever present in our mouths combine with residual food particles and mucus in the mouth and form a sticky substance known as plaque.

If this plaque is not removed daily by proper brushing and flossing the bacteria found in it, inflame the gums. The gums become red and swollen and bleed easily. This stage is known as gingivitis and it can be cured with due proper care and oral hygiene. If gingivitis is not treated then it leads to periodontitis which is a severe form of gum disease.

The gums become severely infected and they start pulling away from the teeth forming small pockets that become infected. The gums, tissue and the bone that supports the teeth get damaged and begin to erode. As a result the teeth may become loose and may eventually off.
