Periodontal Gum Disease Risk Factors Periodontal disease is a serious infection that is caused by bacteria building up in the mouth to such an extent that they cannot be controlled by the body’s own immune system.
The disease results in the gums becoming inflamed (inflamed gums) and it is this inflammation that destroys the gums, and eventually the ligaments and bone surrounding the teeth.
It is often called a ‘silent disease’ as there are few initial symptoms, but it is enormously destructive. Advanced gum disease may result in tooth loss which can be very upsetting, and can also mean you will require ongoing treatment to try to control this chronic condition.
Who is at Risk of Developing Periodontal Gum Disease?
Gum disease can affect anyone at any age, and even children are vulnerable towards developing this bacterial infection.
Research has found it could increase the Gum Disease risk of developing other inflammatory diseases, or systemic diseases, or could worsen any existing health problems. If you already have certain health issues you may be more at risk of developing periodontal disease.
However there are certain factors that increase your chances of getting this serious condition. Being aware of your personal Gum Disease risk can help you take action so you are less likely to develop gum disease.
