Gingivitis vs. Periodontal Disease

Gingivitis in Pasadena is reversible while periodontal disease is not

There are a few major differences between gingivitis and periodontal disease in Pasadena that you should know. Knowing the differences between the two will help you understand how important it is to treat these oral heath issues, and will also make you aware of some of the signs you need to schedule an examination. First and most importantly, gingivitis is a reversible form of gum disease that can be stopped in its tracks before it gets worse. However, periodontal disease is not reversible. In fact, periodontal disease is most commonly the result of untreated gingivitis. Second, gingivitis, or gum disease, solely affects the gums of your teeth. Once you have been diagnosed with periodontal disease, your infection is also affecting your jawbones. This is very important to know, because this deep of an infection may cause you to lose your teeth, but that’s why we are here! If you have gingivitis in Pasadena, we have a treatment for you. Even if you are already in the stages of developing periodontal disease, there is no need to worry. We will do the best we can to help you save your teeth. Give us a call at (626) 796-0313 to schedule your appointment for an examination and cleaning today.

The Causes of Gum Disease

Gum disease in Pasadena can be prevented and here are the causes

Like most other oral issues, gum disease is caused mainly by bacteria in the form of plaque or tartar. This is often due to lack of proper care for your teeth and gums, but isn’t always the case. There are other factors that can contribute to gum disease, or gingivitis in Pasadena as well. Stress, cancer and cancer treatment all limit your immune system making it more likely for your body to experience an infection. Also, if you have crooked teeth, overlapping teeth or another alignment problem, it can contribute to how hard it is to keep your teeth and gums clean. Another unavoidable contributor to gingivitis is hormonal changes within your body. Pregnancy, menopause and puberty can make your body more susceptible to bacteria because of the rise in hormones alone. Tobacco products affect your gums by making it harder for them to heal, which also affects the likelihood of infection. Lastly, if you do not have a healthy, balanced diet, particularly one that is lower in sugar and carbohydrates, this will aid the bacteria formation in your mouth helping along infection and tooth decay. Drinking plenty of water and staying hydrated will help get rid of the bacteria along with proper brushing and flossing. Unfortunately, there are so many items that can contribute to gum disease that it isn’t always completely preventable with proper care. That’s why it is important to get your regularly scheduled cleanings twice a year, so your dentist can examine your oral health and prevent infection before your gingivitis in Pasadena becomes periodontal disease.
