Gum Disease Isn’t Just for Old People

gum disease

You may have heard your parents tell you to stop eating so much sugar because your teeth will “rot right out of your head.” Or, maybe on the days you got caught skipping a routine brushing, you got an equally ominous threat. Of course, many kids and teens chalk that talk up to old wives’ tales. But what if those threats are true? With more that 60 percent of teens in the U.S. affected by some form of gum disease, your parents aren’t making up stories. Excessive consumption of starches and sugar, as well as missing routine tooth brushing and flossing can lead to gum disease, which is painful and can cause your teeth to literally fall out. So, next time you think you can skip brushing, flossing, or one of those twice-annual trips to the dentist, think again.

Gum disease, also called periodontal disease, is an infection of the gum tissue and the bone that supports the teeth. It is the result of plaque buildup on the teeth and gums. Plaque is an invisible, sticky layer of germs and bacteria that mix with the foods you eat to create acids that erode teeth and sensitive gum tissue. Untreated gum disease can cause pain, bad breath, loose teeth, or teeth that fall out.

Your mouth is home to hundreds of kinds of harmful bacteria, so even after a professional teeth cleaning, bacteria begin to reappear in your mouth within 24 hours. This means you have to follow a proper dental care routine and visit your dentist in Tampa regularly.

Preventing Gum Disease:

  • Brush at least twice a day with ADA-recommended toothpaste or, even better, after every meal. If you can’t brush, at least rinse your mouth with water.
  • Floss at least once a day, reaching every tooth.
  • Use a mouthwash after brushing, swishing for at least 60 seconds.
  • Visit your dentist in Tampa every six months.

The same dental care habits that prevent cavities can also prevent gum disease. The key is diligence for your entire life.
