Gum disease is a serious condition which usually results from poor oral hygiene. Gum disease is inflammation of the gums that can go on to destroy the bone surrounding your teeth.

Gum disease is often painless so you might not even know that you have it. If left untreated it can eventually lead to tooth loss.

There are two main types of gum disease, gingivitis and periodontitis. Gingivitis is the most common and can affect up to 70% of New Zealanders. Periodotntitis is more common in adults over 30 and affects around 30%.

Gum disease can be treated and is better for your oral health when diagnosed early. Regular dental checks, proper brushing twice a day and flossing will help to prevent gum disease.

Symptoms of gum disease

In most cases gum disease is painless so it is important that you take good care of your oral health. Regular dental checks are essential.

Signs of gum disease can be subtle. Symptoms may include:

  • red, swollen or tender gums
  • bleeding when you floss or brush
  • loose teeth or separation between teeth
  • continuous bad breath
  • gums that pull away from teeth
  • change in how your teeth sit together when you bite

Some people suffering from gum disease experience no symptoms or pain. The best prevention is regular dentist checks. Visits to the hygienists will also help keep your oral health in check and catch early stages of gum disease before it progresses.

Gum disease is common but preventable. Regular dentist and hygienist visits are essential to maintain good oral health.
