Gums are the soft tissues that cover the roots of teeth and bone in which the tooth is embedded. Also, the gums provide nutrition and support to the bone. Gum problem generally starts with simple swelling, bleeding while brushing, sensitivity, pain and ultimately leading to tooth loss. Various forms of gum disease are present, out of which the commonest form is called ‘Gingivitis’. This occurs due to deposition of sticky foods (plaque) that later calcify and form calculus. The untreated gingivitis turns into advance ‘Periodontitis’ causing tooth loss.
A routine dental checkup once in 6-8 month or a visit to the Dentist as soon as the aforementioned signs are seen helps in the effective management of gum diseases.
