Causes of Gum Disease


Pool Oral Hygiene

Not brushing or flossing on a daily basis makes it easier for gum disease to develop.



Some medications could have an effect on oral health, because they lessen the flow of saliva, which protects your teeth and gums.


Family History

Family history of dental disease could be a contributing factor to gum disease.


Hormonal Changes

Hormonal changes, such as those during pregnancy, puberty, menopause, etc. make your gums ore sensitive and susceptible for disease to develop. 



Illnesses that have an affect on your immune system, may affect the condition of your gums. 


Bad Habits

Bad habits such as smoking make it harder for your gum tissues to repair themselves, making your gums more prone to developing gum disease.
