Causes of Gum Disease and Prevention
Around 90% of us will have gum disease at some point in our lives. Gum diseases are a major cause of tooth loss. Gum diseases describes puffy or swollen gums, Spitting blood when brushing your teeth, soreness, bleeding gums, inflamed or reddish gum  or infection of the gum. These are caused by plaque, which is a sticky layer that collects on the surface of your teeth and is made up of bacteria.

Gum Disease Treatment
If plaque is allowed to build up on teeth bacteria can irritate the gums and causes inflammation. When plaque hardens it forms a layer, called tartar or calculus on the teeth.gum disease can affect any one at any age.

Some groups of people are more at risk of developing gum disease are

Smokers and pan chewers
The gums of smokers are more susceptible to infection because smoking and tobacco causes a lack of oxygen in the blood stream, so reducing the flow of blood and nutrients to the gum tissues. This weakens the body’s defense mechanisms, making the gums more susceptible to infection.
Diabetic’s patients
When someone is suffering from diabetes, the blood vessel structure is altered. This may cause a reduction in the efficiency of the blood flow, which in turn may weaken the gums and bone, leaving them more prone to infections.
Pregnant women
Gums are often much more sensitive and more susceptible to bleeding during pregnancy, and existing gum disease can become more severe, due to changes in hormones.
Older people
Most of the older people have the highest rates of periodontal disease. As we age our immune system becomes less efficient and decreased immunity can contribute to gum disease.
Medications
Many medications can reduce the flow of saliva, which can increase vulnerability to infections like gum disease. Some medications can cause over growth of the gums, which can make it difficult to keep the gums clean.
Genetically
A family history of gum diseases can increase the likelihood of gum problems. Additionally, some people are genetically more susceptible than others to severe gum diseases.
