People do not lose their teeth because of growing old. Old people only lose their teeth when they have long since suffered from advanced periodontal diseases that ultimately result in severe bone loss around the tooth structure.
Most of the adult population from all over the world have some form of periodontal disease, or gum disease. Generally, gum disease is caused by the accumulation of bacterial growth in the gum pockets surrounding your teeth. This accumulation of bacterial growth forms a film on your teeth. This film is called plaque.
Gingivitis And Periodontitis
Plaque build-up that is left unremoved from your teeth for too long tends to irritate and inflame the gums. This irritation and inflammation of the gums due to bacterial infection is called gingivitis, the earliest stage of gum disease. Gingivitis causes the gums to become bloody red and swollen.
When left untreated, gingivitis advances to a more severe stage of periodontal disease: periodontitis. Unlike gingivitis, periodontitis can be a bit more difficult to deal with and requires the help of your local dentist.
Periodontitis creates pockets of spaces between your gums and teeth. These gum pockets eventually become infected. The infection then spreads below the gum line where it ultimately erodes the bone and tissue that hold your teeth in place.
Good Dental Habits And Proper Nutrition
Good dental habits are crucial in keeping periodontal disease at bay. Good dental habits mean brushing your teeth 2x a day using fluoride toothpaste, flossing at least once a day, rinsing with dentist recommended mouthwash, and visiting your local dentist regularly.
Other than these, making sure that you properly nourish your body goes a long way in keeping your teeth in place for years to come. As such, Periodontal Treatment In Bondi shares with you 6 foods that help keep your gum free from periodontitis.
