Gum disease describes swelling or soreness of the gum tissue which keeps our teeth in place. It is caused by plaque, a sticky layer made up of bacteria, that collects on the surface of your teeth and gums. If plaque is allowed to build up, the bacteria can irritate the gums and cause inflammation (swelling). When plaque hardens it forms a layer, called tartar or calculus, on the teeth.
Around 90% of us will have gum disease at some point in our lives.
Gingivitis is the mildest form of gum disease. The symptoms of gingivitis can include:
• Red gums, rather than the usual healthy pink colour
• Puffy or swollen gums
• Bad breath
• Bleeding gums, for example, when you are brushing your teeth
In severe cases, gums may bleed on their own.
If you think you have any of these symptoms, speak to your dentist or hygienist for advice.
Your dentist or hygienist may recommend you use a treatment mouthwash to treat gum disease. Mouthwashes that contain the ingredient chlorhexidine digluconate are effective in reducing plaque and treating gum disease.
All Corsodyl treatment mouthwashes contain chlorhexidine digluconate and are available in 2 flavours- Mint and Original as well as an alcohol free mint variant.
