It is believed that gum diseases are triggered by age-related changes and the aging of the body.
In fact, according to the Periodontists in Colorado, gingivitis and periodontal disease occur both in adults and in children. In addition, gingivitis in pregnant women is also very common. The main reason for the change of gingival tissue is a poor oral hygiene. As a result, on the tooth surface accumulates a large number of pathogen microorganisms. They turn colorless soft plaque into hard deposits - tartar, where live and breed bacteria. It causes inflammation in the gums, and then moves to other periodontal tissues.
Another common cause of gum disease is malocclusion o curved teeth. This leads to uneven loading on periodontal tissue and reduce the effectiveness of self-purification. Frequent causes of gum diseases are injuries, as well as ill-posed seals, improper wearing of dentures and braces.
Often, changes in the periodontal tissues are symptoms of other disease, such as dystonia, atherosclerosis, and allergy, disorders of the endocrine system, metabolism or vitamin balance. Regardless of the cause of the disease it should be treated as early as possible.
