Periodontal diseases are a common problem that is faced by people all around the world. Periodontal infections happen because of the pool oral health. A sticky form of plaque deposits over the gums and teeth. This is the main reason behind gum infections.

Ignoring oral health can result in an extreme build up of the plaque and tartar. The build-up soon takes the form of infection and affects the gums.


The symptoms of periodontal disease include:

  • Loose and sensitive teeth
  • Pus between gums and teeth
  • Halitosis or bad breath
  • Problems experienced while chewing
  • Swollen gums with a red tinge
  • Gums recede, resulting in the teeth appearing longer
  • Bleeding gums

The bacteria found in plaque has toxins that irritate the gums. If the irritation continues, the gums will recede, and teeth can appear much longer. If the periodontal disease is not taken care of, the gums can deteriorate.
