Noticing blood on your toothbrush? Don't wait for your gum health to worsen—Trust Arya's Dental Clinic for gum treatment in Nagpur.

Gum disease is caused by bacteria resulting in inflammation, soreness, and swelling of the gums. The main contributor to dental issues is plaque build-up, a sticky layer of bacteria that develops on teeth.

When plaque isn't removed through proper brushing and flossing, it hardens into tartar, leading to bacterial growth that can harm gums.

If not addressed in time, this can progress to periodontitis, a more severe gum condition, where the infection spreads to the inner attachments of the teeth, including surrounding bone and tooth-supporting tissue.

However, experiencing these symptoms does not necessarily mean you have gum disease. But, if you are experiencing any of the symptoms related to gum disease, consult our experts at Arya's Dental Clinic for gum treatment in Nagpur.
