Gum problems

Gum disease is mainly due to an inflammation of the gum line that can progress to the bone that supports your teeth.
It can also reach the general state of health and cause diseases such as diabetes, immunodepression ...
The three stages of gum disease - from the least serious to the most serious - are gingivitis, periodontitis and advanced periodontitis.

It is inflammation of the gums, caused by dental plaque in the gums accompanied by bleeding during brushing, redness or swelling. At this stage, gum disease can be easily treated because the bones and connective tissue that support the teeth in place are not yet affected.


In this case, the bones and connective tissue are irreversibly damaged. This promotes the penetration of the plaque below the gum line. Professional periodontal therapy is therefore essential to prevent further damage.

In this case, the bones and the connective tissue of the teeth are being destroyed, giving way to a shift or loosening of the teeth. This problem affects the bite and how to eat and communicate people who suffer from it. If a periodontal treatment cannot save them, it will extract the tooth and think of replacing it with the dentist.

Here are some symptoms of gum disease :

  • Bleeding When Brushing Or Using Dental Floss
  • Red Or Swollen Gums
  • Remote Gums
  • Bad Breath Or Bad Taste In The Mouth
  • Visible Plaque Surrounding The Teeth
  • Pain During Chewing
  • Sensitivity To Hot Or Cold Foods
  • Dental Displacement
  • ...

Good brushing and the use of floss greatly help prevent gum disease. Using an antibacterial toothpaste or mouthwash can kill bacteria and reduce the amount of plaque in the mouth. The elimination of dental plaque is the key to preventing gum disease and improving the health of the mouth.
