Discomfort when brushing teeth, their apparent ill condition — this is a sure sign that it is time to immediately sign up for an appointment with your dentist.
Healthy gums have a light pink coloration, they do not bleed during proper brushing, their tissues look uniform, unchanged and not deformed. The unhealthy gum tissue looks contrary: it is dark red, bleeds when brushing teeth, painful when touched
Symptoms of gum disease
Beginning periodontitis: exposed dental necks — the gum is moving away from the tooth.
Unpleasant odor from the mouth. A possible cause is plaque on the teeth, as well as deposits that are stuck in the teeth, interdental spaces or in so-called dentogingival pockets. Dental plaque can also lead to periodontitis
Hyperemia — swelling and redness of the gums.
Fan-shaped divergence of teeth, appearance of gaps between them.
Appearance of pus between the tooth and gum when pressing on the gum.
Why do you need to get rid of dental plaque and stone
Dental plaque mostly — up to 90% consists of water, the rests are microorganisms and saliva salts.
Ideally, from the point of view of the dentist, is to clean the teeth after each meal, as the plaque begins to form in a couple of hours after brushing (salt saliva), and after meals the number of germs increases due to food residues on and between the teeth. And all this is layered throughout the day, and if you forget to brush your teeth at night, then the process of plaque and stone formation continues on the teeth and gums, which is a consequence of the release of acids — the product of the vital activity of bacteria. And acids, as we know, have a negative effect on periodontal tissue.
