What is Gum Disease?
Gum disease is also known as periodontal disease is a disease in which there is a gradual loss of gum as well as bone tissues that hold your teeth in position. It begins with irritation along the gum line and then progresses to the dissolution of bone tissues, which results in early loosening of the tooth and its eventual loss.
It’s therefore important to detect gum disease early on with treatment.
What Happens During a Gum Disease Diagnosis?
When you visit your dentist to get treated for gum disease, a dentist conducts a dental exam where they would check for things like:
- Bleeding gums, any kind of swelling, firmness, or depth between your gums and tooth (more the depth, higher the severity of the disease)
- Mobility of your teeth, alignment, and overall sensitivity
- Examination of your jawbone for detecting any breakdown of your bones nearby the teeth
