What Is Gum Disease?

Gum disease, often referred to as periodontal disease, occurs when harmful bacteria grow beneath the gum line and infects your gums. A dentist or periodontist will explain that there are two stages of the disease:

  • Gingivitis: Bacteria and plaque begin to irritate your gums.
  • Periodontitis: Bacteria burrow beneath the gum line and infect your gum tissue.

If you experience any warning signs of gum disease, immediately getting to your local dentist office may help prevent the disease from becoming more severe. The DeJesus Dental Group hygiene team will carefully remove the bacteria, plaque, and tartar that collect on your teeth. However, waiting to see your dentist can lead to periodontitis, which can be treated but cannot be cured.

Early Signs of Gum Disease

A change in your gums that causes them to be tender, swollen, or red are early warning signs of gum disease. If you notice blood after brushing or flossing, that could indicate a stage of gum disease. Gingivitis is often evident in those with chronic bad breath, while periodontitis can cause teeth to loosen or fall out.

Scaling and Root Planing

When that bacteria climb below the gum line, scaling and root planing are necessary. During this procedure, we gently reach below your gums to scrape away the plaque and tartar build-up. This is a non-surgical gum disease treatment method and is often effective in stopping gingivitis.
