Do You Only Get Gum Disease as an Older Person?

Posted on 7/26/2021 by Cassity & Legacy Implants and Periodontics
Gum disease is caused by an infection of the tissues that hold your teeth in place. It can be caused by lack of oral care, and other risk factors. It is most important to bush and flush daily to make sure that the risk for gum disease is limited.

Our mouths always contain bacteria, some that is good and some that is not. There is also mucus, food particles, and other things that constantly form plaque on the teeth. Brushing, flossing, and our normal saliva help us get rid of the unwanted plaque on the teeth and gums. If the plaque develops into tarter, it can only be removed during a professional cleaning. There are also risk factors that are not related to daily oral hygiene, including smoking, diabetes, hormones, and medications. Dry mouth, or any concerns related to limited saliva can also increase the chances that plaque and other unwanted particles remain stuck in the teeth.

If you have symptoms associated with gum disease, or you have questions related to gum disease treatment, please give our office a call and our periodontists will gladly help....
