Causes Of Bleeding Gum Disease

The foremost known cause of periodontal (gum) disease is bacterial plaque, a highly adhesive, clear film that is constantly forming on your teeth. The following causes have also been attributed to gingivitis and the more advanced forms of periodontitis:

  • Smoking and tobacco use is a significant promotor of gum disease. Smoking is no secret contributor to a host of many other health related issues.
  • Genetics predispose a large population to gum disease, irrespective of the fact in maintaining good oral health care.
  • Pregnancy, though a cause for celebration socially, also brings the hormonal changes that lead to an increased susceptibility to gum disease. Severe hormonal fluctuations are known to affect a number of tissues in your body, including your gums.
  • Medications that you take for health reasons like heart conditions, etc., or personal reasons such as oral contraceptives, also negatively impact your overall oral health.
  • Grinding your teeth (bruxism) is also known to accelerate the rate at which gum disease destroys the sensitive support system of your mouth, causing decay, root canal and maybe tooth loss in extraction.
  • Diabetes is another major cause that brings fluctuations and alterations in your blood sugar, leading to severe periodontal disease that requires gum surgery.
  • Poor nutrition affects the immune system, weakening body’s natural ability to fight off gum disease besides leading to a multitude of health-related complications.
