What causes gum disease?

Gum or periodontal disease starts with bacterial plaque along the gumline, progressing to harmful tartar and bacteria that cause inflammation. Factors like poor oral hygiene, tobacco use, genetics, hormonal changes, certain medical conditions, and stress contribute to its development.

Regular dental check-ups and consistent oral care are essential for prevention and management, ensuring lasting gum and teeth health. Contact our Gresham gum disease dentist at (503) 666-7000 for personalized advice.
