Gum bleeding (brushing or spontaneously), halitosis, red and swollen gum, dissatisfaction in the mouth, appearance of the tooth root, swinging teeth, teeth that bend or skew tooth over time are gum disease symptoms.
The tartar that accumulates around the teeth will cause gum disease. A layer is formed around the teeth called tartar as a merger result of food residues in teeth and calcium in saliva. Tartars weaken the connection between the teeth and gums, causing the tooth to swing or even fall. The tartar can only be cleaned by a dentist or gum disease specialist (periodontolog). Toothpaste with anti-tartar properties cannot remove the formed tartar.
In summary, when food remains are not cleaned, tartar formation occurs around the teeth. Accumulated tartar forms gum diseases. The first step in the treatment of gum disease is the removal of tartar. Antibiotic treatment may be recommended for progressive gum disease. Even in some cases surgical procedures can be applied to remove the root surface of the tooth called curettage. Early gum diseases can be seen in different forms such as gingivitis or periodontitis.
