Gum disease is caused by a build-up of plaque on the teeth. Plaque is a sticky substance that contains bacteria. When left to build-up, the bacteria can enter and infect the gum tissue. Most adults in the uk have gum disease to some extent; and it is exacerbated by smoking, poor diet and drinking. In its early stages gum disease is known as gingivitis. If gingivitis isn’t treated, a condition called periodontitis can develop. This affects more tissues that support teeth and hold them in place.
