Gum disease or periodontal disease is a condition that can develop due to poor mouth hygiene. It causes inflammation of gums and if not treated as soon as possible it can lead to severe damage. The inflammation is caused by bacterium that multiplies around your teeth and also between them if the inter-dental spaces are not cleaned correctly. This leads to swelling, bleeding and in more severe cases receding of gums.If it is not treated as soon as possible, it can eventually lead to bone damage and teeth loss.Eating means a constant intake of different substances into your mouth, combined with the secretion of the salivary glands. Add the human factor of body temperature and you will have perfect conditions for the development of bacteria that can cause or worsen chronic gum disease.
