Risk Factors for Gum Disease
- Smoking- will dramatically increase your chances of developing gum disease and can lower the chances for successful treatment.
- Hormonal Changes-in girls and women. These changes can make gums more sensitive and make it easier for gingivitis to develop.
- Diabetes– people with diabetes are at higher risk for developing infections, including gum disease.
- Pre-Existing Illnesses– diseases like cancer or AIDS and their treatments can negatively affect the health of gums.
- Medication– some prescription and over-the-counter medications can reduce the flow of saliva, which has a protective effect on the mouth. Without enough saliva, the mouth is vulnerable to infections such as gum disease.
- Genetics- some people are more prone to severe gum disease than others.
- Age and Sex– men are more likely to have gum disease than women. People don’t usually develop gum disease until their 30s and 40s.
Stages of Gum Disease
The longer plaque and tartar are allowed to accumulate on teeth, the more harmful they become. The bacteria cause inflammation of the gums called gingivitis. With gingivitis, the gums become red, swollen and can bleed easily. Gingivitis is a mild form of gum disease that can usually be reversed with daily brushing, flossing and regular dental cleanings. When gingivitis is not treated, it can advance to periodontitis. With periodontitis, your gums pull away from your teeth and form spaces that become infected. If this condition goes untreated, the bones, gums, and tissue that support the teeth will be destroyed. These teeth may become loose and need to be removed.

Restorative treatment options for gum disease may include:
- Flap surgery to remove tartar deposits in deep pockets or to reduce the periodontal pocket

From bent book spines to scratches on cars, everything in life goes through wear and tear. No matter much we may want things to stay in absolute perfect condition, unfortunately, that never happens. The same thing goes for your smile. A chip here and a gap there can really affect the overall aesthetic of your smile, and can cause you to feel insecure about the way you look. A smile is a way we show friendliness and communicate with others, and if it is in less than perfect condition, it can affect the way you interact with the people around you as well as the way we feel about ourselves. Our smiles accumulate stains over time, dulling our smiles, making it appear lackluster and unappealing. Luckily, our experienced and talented doctors are able to whiten your smile using teeth whitening at their Brampton, Ontario dental office.
There are many things that can affect the brightness of your smile. From coffee, tea, and wine to certain medications, tobacco products and natural aging, our smiles are almost always exposed to things that will take the whiteness away. We offer a couple of teeth whitening options to our patients, making sure they receive the treatment that is best and most convenient for them. The first is in-office whitening. When you come in for your teeth whitening appointment at our dental office, we will put a whitening gel over your smile, and in about an hour, your smile is up to ten shades whiter! This is a great option for those who want to whiten their smiles during their lunch break and for people who have a busy schedule.
The second form we offer is at-home teeth whitening, which is a more gradual way to whiten your smile. We will supply you with custom-made whitening trays, fitting your smile like a glove. This ensures that your results are amazing, and it makes your treatment completely personalized to you. We will also provide the professional grade whitening gel to you. All you need to do is fill the trays with the whitening gel and wear them for a certain amount of time each day. In about two weeks, you will see the full results! If you would like our doctors’ help in whitening your smile with teeth whitening, contact our office today!
