 Also called as gum disease, refers to inflammation and infection of the tissues (Gums) that support the teeth.

it is caused by poor brushing and flossing habits that allow plaque to build up on the teeth and harden forming calculus.



  • Reddish gums
  • BleedingSoreness
  • Bad breath
  • Unpleasant taste
  • Pain when chewing
  • Gum recession (gums that pull away from your teeth)
  • Loose teeth 

Ways to prevent gum disease

  • Brush for at least 2 minutes, twice a day, with fluoride toothpaste, paying special attention to your back teeth 
  • Use a soft bristles toothbrush with gentle strokes so you don’t wear away your gums or teeth
  • Change your toothbrush every 3 months
  • Don’t stop flossing if your gums bleed. Flossing can improve the health of your gums and help them stop bleeding
