What is tooth gum?
Gum is the name given to the tissues that surround the teeth and tooth roots and are located on the jawbone. Gum health is also a phenomenon directly related to basic oral and dental health. Gum diseases can be more dangerous than caries because gum diseases damage bone tissue and directly cause tooth loss. Tooth loss, on the other hand, affects the nutrition and speech of individuals and also changes the aesthetic appearance. Physical appearance can sometimes cause a lack of self-confidence in individuals and tooth loss is one of these reasons that impact self-confidence.
How can gums pose a risk to oral health?
The mouth is the most important organ in our body. Since it’s where we chew and swallow food and also talk, you need to take care of your mouth by brushing your teeth twice a day and flossing regularly. Tooth decay can lead to gum disease, which can be a risky health condition. There are many different types of bacteria in the mouth that cause tooth decay and gum disease. These bacteria form plaque on the teeth and lead to tooth decay if left untreated. Bacteria can also spread to the gums, causing gum disease if left untreated. There are many ways to prevent tooth decay and gum disease by taking proper care of your teeth. You should brush your teeth with a fluoride toothpaste at least twice a day and floss with interdental brushes or floss at least once a day. You should also visit your dentist for regular checkups every six months.
Our specialist dentists at ABAY DENTAL CENTER determine whether you have gum disease through detailed examinations and inform patients about the necessary treatment process.
What are the effects of prolonged exposure to gum or dental plaque?
Dental plaque is a sticky, colorless film that constantly forms on teeth in response to the natural presence of food and saliva. The effects of prolonged exposure to gum or dental plaque are not fully understood. There are a number of different types of bacteria in dental plaque. If dental plaque stays on the teeth for a long time, it can cause tooth decay, gum disease, and other oral health problems, and it can also cause bad breath.
