Gum Disease Usually Begins with Bleeding Gums

Do your gums ever bleed with flossing or look puffy?

If so, now is the time to take action.

According to a study published in 2018, almost half of adults in America have gum disease (gingivitis or periodontitis), which equates to potentially 65 million adult Americans with the problem. 

Infections in the gums may provide an entryway for bacteria to enter the body and contribute to other health problems.

Gum Disease in a Nutshell

Plaque is the sticky buildup of a hard to break through, bacterial biofilm on the teeth. The buildup of plaque can lead to gum disease.

“Gingivitis is the first stage in gum disease, when gums appear inflamed and may bleed.”

Long-term health consequences can be associated with gum disease.

There has been research showing connections between gum disease inflammation, and diseases such as:

  • Heart Disease
  • Blood Clots and Strokes
  • Respiratory Disease
  • Type 2 Diabetes
  • Alzheimer’s Disease
  • Anxiety
  • Depression

Professional dental cleanings are important to remove bacterial communities, but additional care is often recommended to help manage bacterial regrowth. Bacterial communities underlying the disease can begin to reappear within days.

The most advanced stage of bacterial growth involves clumps of bacteria detaching from the original community to form new infections. Plaque can even exist beneath the gum line, which is called tartar.

Fight back now against bacteria causing gum inflammation, bleeding and gum disease!
