Does Periodontal (Gum) Disease Go Away?

Posted on 4/15/2024 by Weo Admin
a close up of healthy gums and pearly teethYou can stop periodontal disease progression and manage it with effective treatment. Without treatment, periodontal disease cannot go away. The bacteria continue to destroy the bone that supports your teeth. Eventually, the tooth loosens, and you lose it. With that said, immediate gum disease care is the only solution to managing periodontal disease.

How Do You Get Periodontal Disease?


Poor oral hygiene and a bad lifestyle can cause periodontitis. Poor oral hygiene entails failure to brush the teeth after meals or at least twice daily. On the other hand, a bad lifestyle includes eating too much sugary foods, which interacts with the bacteria within the plaque to produce acid responsible for tooth decay.

How Long Does Periodontal Disease Take to Develop


Periodontal disease progression depends on your oral hygiene practices and lifestyle. The disease can develop in a few weeks if you ingest more sugary and starchy foods and rarely brush your teeth. Usually, gum inflammation appears in just a few days as the first symptom of periodontal disease. Unfortunately, the disease may progress to other stages if you do not seek immediate gum disease care.

Stages of Periodontal Disease


Gum disease develops through different stages. Mainly there are four stages, as explained below:

Gingivitis

Gingivitis involves inflammation of the gingiva, which results in red and swollen gums. Gums easily bleed at this stage.

Slight Periodontal Disease

The slight periodontal disease is characterized by gum recession. Pockets appear between the gum and the teeth, allowing more plaque accumulation.

Moderate Periodontal Disease

The gums recede further, exposing the jawbone and root canal. The exposed root canal becomes more susceptible to decay because bacteria hide in the deep pockets. Gum sensitivity also increases, and the teeth loosen.

Advanced Periodontal Disease

The gum tissue deteriorates, heightening the risk of bone loss. The gums bleed and may ooze pus, making it difficult to reverse the condition.

Sometimes, you can develop stage one gum disease. But, you can prevent the disease from progressing to later stages by contacting our dentists for oral care guidance and early treatment.
