Gum Disease Treatment in Bonita Springs, Florida

These conditions eventually lead to tooth loss. Periodontics is referred to as the study that focuses on the detection, diagnosis, and treatment of these gum problems.

Gum diseases can range from as mild as gingivitis (the early stage of gum disease) to as serious as periodontitis. Gum or periodontal diseases are caused by the spread of the bacteria in your mouth which came from the buildup of plaque that is not addressed by brushing and flossing. These bacteria can go down to the roots of your teeth and eventually irritate and destroy the soft tissues inside your mouth and as well as your bone structure that provides support for your teeth.

It is important to pay close attention to these gum diseases because it can increase your risk of certain oral & health conditions like:

  • Heart disease and atherosclerosis
  • Premature birth and low birth weight
  • Stroke
  • Diabetes
  • Lung and respiratory diseases

If gingivitis is left untreated, it can progress to an advanced stage of gum disease which is called periodontitis. Periodontitis is the inflammation of the gums around the tooth that cause the gum recession. Gum recession or the pulling away of the gum from the teeth happens when pockets or spaces are formed due to the spread of the bacteria. Gum recession can also lead to tooth loss, which is why you should not be waiting for these things to happen.
