Don’t let gum disease sneak up on you
Gum disease is a sneaky beast. It can be lurking in your mouth even when you have good oral hygiene habits like daily brushing and flossing.
The best way to catch it before it creeps up on you is to have regular dental check-up and cleans to remove the build up of plaque and tartar on your teeth.
Gum disease prevention and management can also help you avoid the need for dental fillings due to cavities or dental implants due to lost teeth.

Have a question about gum disease treatment at Delight Dental Spa?
What is gum disease?
Gum disease occurs when the tissues and structures that surround and support your teeth (the periodontium) become infected. It is a very common condition that affects 3 in 10 adults in Australia.
What are the stages of gum disease?
There are two main stages of gum disease: gingivitis and periodontitis.
Gingivitis is a common and mild form of early gum disease that causes redness, swelling and irritation of the gums. At this stage, it only affects the surface layers of the gum and there is no damage to the deeper layers of the gums, teeth or bone. The good news is that gingivitis can be reversed without permanent damage.
If gingivitis is not treated, it can become periodontitis. Periodontitis is a more advanced stage of gum disease that involves the inflammation of the periodontium, including the covering of the tooth root, the bone and the ligaments that connect the tooth root to the bone. Periodontitis cannot be cured, but can be managed with ongoing care.
What causes gum disease?
Gum disease is caused by a build up of plaque on your teeth and along the gum line. Plaque irritates the gums and if it is not cleaned off properly, it can harden into calculus or tartar. Your immune system will react to plaque with an inflammation response, causing redness and swelling of the gums.
Gum disease is generally the result of poor oral hygiene. You can reduce your chances of developing gum disease by brushing your teeth and gum line at least twice a day, flossing daily and getting regular dental check-ups.
How is gum disease treated?
Gum disease treatment is required to stop the progression of the disease, reduce swelling and the risk of infection, reduce the depth of periodontal pockets and promote the reattachment of the gums to the teeth.
Treatment options will depend on the stage of gum disease and can range from non-surgical treatment to help control bacteria growth to surgery to restore the supportive tissues.
What happens if gum disease is not treated?
When the seal of your gum is damaged by gum disease, periodontal pockets can form between the tooth root and gum. Bacteria get stuck in these pockets and cause further damage to the periodontium.
Over time, this can destroy the bone that supports your teeth. If left untreated, the periodontium can become so damaged that your teeth become loose and may need to be removed.
What are the symptoms of gum disease?
The common signs of gum disease include:
- Bleeding gums (especially when eating or brushing)
- Redness and swelling of the gums
- Receding gums
- Pain or tenderness when biting or chewing
- Bad breath or a bad taste in your mouth
- Loose teeth
- New spaces between your teeth
