Bacteria

Gums swollen and sore? Perhaps this is due to the pathogenic growth of microorganisms in the oral cavity. The mouth is an ideal habitat for most of bacterias. The number of bacterias increases sharply, and various inflammatory diseases of the gums and oral mucosa increase.

Poor Home Hygiene

If you brush your teeth irregularly, and the process itself takes less than a minute, then most likely the cause of gum disease is plaque that you have not completely removed from the surface of the teeth. Millions of bacteria live and breed in plaque. The acids that they secrete in the process of life negatively affect the enamel and gums, leading to caries and periodontitis.

​ ​ ​

Tartar

If you notice dark hard deposits on your teeth that can not be removed with a brush? This is tartar. It was formed as a result of all the same low-quality cleaning. These dental deposits adversely affect the health of the entire oral cavity. They destroy the tissue that holds the tooth; lead to the appearance of an inflammatory process and bleeding; form periodontal pockets, through which microorganisms penetrate not only into the surrounding tissue, but also into the blood.

Other reasons

Pregnancy, a genetic predisposition, various systemic diseases, taking antibiotics, allergies, poor prosthetics, bad habits, mechanical trauma - all these factors can trigger the development of an inflammatory process in the oral cavity, which requires immediate treatment.
