GUMS

Periodontal disease, known as "gum disease", is a disease of the tissues surrounding the tooth: gum and bone.

It begins with inflammation of the gums (gingivitis) and progresses toward the root of the tooth destroying the ligament that attaches the tooth to the bone (periodontal ligament) and the bone itself.

In advanced cases the tooth is left without support and is lost.


SYMPTOMS:

The symptoms depends on the stage and grade is found in periodontal disease.

1. - Bleeding gums: brushing or in more advanced cases spontaneously.

2. - Gingival pain or discomfort.

3. - Bad breath.

4. - Receding gums: at first, by inflammation is an increase of the gums, but over time, to lose bone, the gingiva is retracted and the roots are exposed.

5. - Sensitivity to cold or heat.

6. - Phlegmons or abscesses.

7. - Mobility tooth: teeth eventually lose bone support and move. In advanced cases, mobility just spontaneous tooth falling.
