Gum disease is an Inflammation of the soft tissue (gingiva) and irregular loss of bone that encompasses the teeth and holds them in place. Gum disease is caused by toxins/ acid secreted by microscopic organisms in plaque that accumulate over time along the gum line. This plaque is a mixture of food, saliva, and bacteria. Early manifestations of gum disease include gum bleeding without pain. Pain is an indication of further developed gum disease as the loss of bone around the teeth leads to the formation of gum pockets.Microbes in these pockets cause gum disease, swelling, torment, and further bone demolition. Advanced gum disease can cause loss of healthy teeth.
