What are gum diseases?

Gum disease is one of the most common problems patients come across. Inflammation and infection in the gums can destroy the supporting tissues and cause the teeth to fall out. Plaque is a bio-film which forms over the teeth's surface. It contains bacteria which can inflame and destroy the soft supporting tissues. Plaque build-up around the gums can cause swelling and reddening of the gums and result in gum irritation. If not treated in time, the inflammation can turn into a periodontal disease which is a complicated oral condition.

Periodontal care concentrates on the removal of plaque using medical instruments. Pockets are cleared and gums are reshaped as part of the periodontal care. The dentist takes necessary steps to educate the patients on how to keep the gums free from plaque.

Causes and prevention of gum diseases

There are a number of factors which can cause gum disease in a person. It is important for patients to maintain proper oral hygiene and visit your dentist regularly to stay protected from gum diseases.

Poor Oral Hygiene – Improper brushing and flossing habits are among the top reasons for gum diseases in patients. Plaque build-up, which is the culprit that causes gum diseases, may be because of poor methods of cleaning your teeth.

Tobacco – Tobacco users are prone to gum diseases. Tobacco use can reduce a person's ability to fight the periodontal problem.

Medication – Use of certain types of medicines has proven to cause the reduction in the flow of saliva which increases the possibility of plaque accumulation.


Our goal is to provide superior quality dental care which caters to all dental needs of a person. We consider both aesthetics and dental health factors when performing the treatment which enables us in coming out with wonderful smiles for our patients.
