Think about your gumsThe important and often overlooked part of a healthy mouth.
Your gums support your teeth and their health is so important for maintaining overall oral health as well as the health of the rest of your body. If your gums exhibit signs of gums disease it is important to seek treatment as soon as possible. If left untreated, gum disease can cause the shifting of teeth and eventually result in tooth loss.
Mainly caused by poor oral hygiene, it’s when a build-up of bacteria from food that has not been removed from between the teeth begins to infect the gums causing inflammation and bleeding as well as some discomfort.
Other life influences such as pregnancy, diabetes, stress and genetics have also been known to increase the risk of gum disease.
