The swelling of the tissue around the teeth because of poor oral hygiene is known as gum disease. It is a common condition that varies in severity.
Gingivitis is the earliest stage of gum disease. It makes the gum look red, swollen, and bleed. People usually feel little to no discomfort during this stage. However, it could be treated professionally or by maintaining good oral hygiene regularly.
Gingivitis could be due to several factors that include smoking, diabetes, stress, consumption of specific medications, etc.
The gingivitis that does not get timely treatment could cause periodontitis. When you do not treat the accumulated plaque on your teeth, it spreads further and gives birth to bacteria that irritate the gums. It separates the gums from the teeth, making them infected. If not treated properly, it could lead to severe gum problems that can weaken both your bone and the gums of your teeth.
If a person does not follow proper oral hygiene, plaque accumulates on their teeth and infects the gum drastically. However, there are other factors involved in the increase of gum disease that include:

Patients seeking gum disease treatment can now turn to the new, minimally invasive LANAP® (Laser-Assisted New Attachment Procedure). By using this new laser technology, a dentist for gum disease can remove diseased tissue without using a scalpel. The LANAP® gum disease treatment works by inserting a small fiber between the tooth and the gum and sending a pulsed laser light to remove all bacteria and infected tissue from the area. The laser is then used again to stimulate the bone and tissue in a way that encourages regrowth. By removing only the infected tissue, LANAP® gum disease treatment reduces bleeding and minimizes recovery time.
Do you experience sore or bleeding gums when brushing or flossing your teeth? Do you have severe pain when chewing food? These symptoms can be the warning signs of gum disease - gingivitis or periodontitis. It is important to address these conditions at the earliest stages to prevent future complications.
Bioclear is the latest and most innovative technique of dental restoration. It is a procedure that has evolved from the traditional use of amalgam fillings to contemporary composite restorations. It helps the dentist to give superior all-around treatment to traditional fillings.
