Signs of gum disease:
Because Gingivitis symptoms are easy to ignore people often do just that. Many gingivitis patients don't even know they have Gingivitis.
The most telling signs of early gum disease are swollen gums and bleeding.
"Gum disease" is a non-medical way to describe any disease that affects the gums in your mouth. One of the most common gum diseases is gingivitis, which is inflammation of the gingiva or gums - signs include bleeding from the gums, swelling, pain and redness of the gums. However, there are other diseases include cancer of the gingiva that are also classified as "gum disease".
Heart disease is linked to gum disease.
Gum Disease can be prevented by maintaining good oral hygiene.
No, baking soda cannot 'cure' gum disease (periodontal disease). Currently, there is no universal cure for gum disease. Gum disease can usually be effectively 'controlled' with proper care and treatment, but once periodontal disease has been diagnosed, the signs and symptoms can return at any time. Periodontal disease is differentiated from simple gingivitis (inflammation of the gums) by the loss of periodontal attachment, that is the destruction of the tissue surrounding the teeth that attach the tooth to the jaw. A dentist or dental hygienist can examine your teeth and gums and tell you if you have periodontal disease or gingivitis. Baking soda can be incorporated into the treatment of gum disease, but has never been demonstrated to be effective in the control of gum disease by itself. The first step in controlling gum disease is determining the cause of the disease and the extent of the condition. The most common cause of gum disease is long-term poor oral hygiene and lack of professional care in a dental office. If caught early, gum disease can usually be controlled with improved oral hygiene and non-surgical treatment in a dental office. If the disease is advanced or severe, sometimes surgery is necessary to get the condition under control. Other factors that impact gum disease include smoking, worn out dental fillings or crowns, systemic conditions such as diabetes, a family history of gum disease (genetic predisposition), some medications, and inadequate nutrition. The best course of action is to see a qualified dentist and follow his/her advice.
Gum shrink is caused by gum disease. Gum disease can be prevented by regular brushing, flossing and dental check ups.

Plaque has bacteria and micro-organisms that produce toxins which attack gum tissue and cause inflammation. That is the first stage of gum disease.

smoking and eating chewing tobacco
can i have dental implants if i have gum deseae. and one of my teeth is loose The answer is that first you have to have periodontal treatment to resolve the gum disease. As far as the "your loose tooth" --- that would be replaced by an implant. First, treat the gum disease, then consider implant surgery.
Gum Disease is the leading cause of tooth loss and is completely preventable and treatable. Periodontal disease can be treated with non-surgical and surgical options. Typically, the disease is routinely treated by scaling and root planning clinching by a licensed hygienist. Other treatment options are available to help prevent the spread of infection and help reduce the size of the gum pocket formed around the teeth as part of the disease.

How Do You Cure Gum Disease? Please awnser me!
Nicorette gum contains nicotine, the addictive ingredient in cigarettes. While nicotine does not 'cause' gum disease, it has been shown to contribute to the severity of the disease. Nicotine is toxic to cells called fibroblasts. Fibroblasts are cells that create and rebuild connective tissue in the body. Connective tissue is destroyed in gum disease, and when fibroblast function is impaired by nicotine, the body's ability to fight off the disease is significantly limited. Therefore, gum disease generally tends to be more severe in people who ingest or inhale nicotine.
