What is Gingivitis Gum Disease by Inayatullah Shaheen

As we all know, brushing our teeth is a good way to keep our self-healthy. A person who brushes his or her teeth one time a day, will have a little or no effects on the teeth, gums, and it wont destroys the bacteria totally. Whereas brushing two times a day and each time after each meal, will provide you and your teeth a healthy teeth and healthy body as well.

Did you know that, diabetes, smoking, HIV, systemic diseases, and certain medication usage can cause gingivitis gum disease? Gingivitis is the mildest from of the periodontal disease, which causes gum to become red, swollen, and bleed easily.  There is usually little or no discomfort at gingivitis stage.  Gingivitis gum disease can be taken care by, going to professional treatment care, or oral home care, which means, brushing teeth after each meal, and at least brush’s your teeth two time a day. Once in morning and once at night.

Sometimes it can be hard to take care our teeth’s. And untreated gingivitis can cause problem to the gums line. This problem is known as periodontitis. If this problem is ignored for long time, it can cause plague to spread and grow below gum line. As this grow below gun line, the toxin produced by the bacteria in plague irritate the gum. Once this start occurring, the inflammatory tells the body to turn on itself. This response breaks down and destroys the bone, and tissues, that supports the teeth.  To understand this distraction, just imagine how termite destroys the wooden house.  As the gums separates from the teeth, making a space between gum and teeth that become infected. As this disease grows bigger, the space between gum and teeth deepen, and it destroys and breaks the tissues and bones.  As times goes by the teeth started to loosen and, falls out or the teeth need to be removed from a professional dentist.

There are many forms of periodontitis, the most common one are the aggressive periodontitis, chronic periodontitis, periodontitis as a manifestation of systemic diseases, and the necrotizing periodontitis disease.   Aggressive periodontitis occurs when destruction of the bones starts.  However chronic periodontitis results in inflammation within the supporting tissues of the teeth. Which later loosen the tooth and destroys the bones.  Periodontist as a manifestation of systemic diseases often beings at young age. Systemic disease such as heart disease, diabetes diseases, and respiratory diseases.  Whereas necrotizing periodontitis is an infection characterized by” necrosis of gingival tissues, periodontal ligament and alveolar bone”.

Gingivitis is a disease, if a person has it, they won’t know, and it would cause serious gum disease. Gingivitis always starts off building plaque, an invisible bacteria stuck on teeth, and gum. Brushing the teeth twice a day and flossing, will move plaque from the teeth. Plaque reforms very quickly, within under 24 hours brushing the teeth. If Plaque is remains in the mouth for two to three days goes under the gums line and forms tartar makes harder to brush away the bacteria which is formed by invisible plaque and tartar. It is impossible to remove plaque and tartar by brushing or even flossing. It takes a professional dentist or a dental hygienist to use special tools to remove and kills the invisible plaque and tartar which is formed under the gum line. If the plaque and tartar is reminded on the teeth and gum, it would started Gingivitis, which will cause irritation on the gum line. And as times goes by, the gum will be swollen and get red, and it might started bleeding if not taken care correctly. My best advice is to brush your teeth two times a day, and if possible, brush your teeth after each meal. It will help keep away plaque and tartar far away from the teeth’s.
