What Is Gum Disease?

Gum disease, also called periodontal disease, is an infection of the gums and dental support structures. It begins with puffy or swollen gums and progresses to more severe stages that may result in bone and tooth loss. The best way to help prevent gum disease is good oral hygiene habits.

Gingivitis is the earliest phase of gum disease. Sensitive or swollen gums can be an early sign of gingivitis. However, it's also common for the early stages of gingivitis to be pain-free. Gingivitis is caused by the build-up of plaque on your teeth that forms tartar under your gumline, causing irritation and inflammation. This phase of gum disease can be halted and even reversed with the right treatments.

As gum disease progresses into moderate and severe stages called periodontitis, your gums become dark and you may notice they are beginning to recede. In the most advanced stages of gum disease, you may experience the loss of teeth or have the infection enter your bloodstream, causing problems to your overall health.
