where it comes from
Bleeding gums are a symptom of periodontal disease called gingivitis. This means that the gums are inflamed – signs of inflammation are: redness, swelling, pain and bad breath.
The most common cause for gingivitis is poor oral hygiene and irregular visits to the dentist. Some systemic diseases also have their impact on developing periodontal problems.
what is the solution
When you do not brush your teeth in the right way, plaque accumulates around the teeth and gums. When plaque remains there for a while without being removed, it becomes a hard substance, called tartar. Tartar has a rough structure, therefore leads to even more plaque accumulation. Dental plaque contains bacteria and irritates your gums.
Neglecting the symptoms mentioned above, can lead to advancing of the gingivitis to periodontitis. The periodontal disease destroys the gum attachment to the roots of the teeth and leads to loss of gingival and bone tissues. With the advancement of the disease, your teeth can become loose and tooth loss is highly possible. Periodontitis is one of the most common reasons for tooth loss for adults.
