Gum Problems

What are the risk factors for gum problems?

Poor dental hygiene practices that allow for dental plaque to build up are directly linked to gum problems. Devices around teeth, such as dental braces (orthodontic treatment), can make it difficult to properly clean around teeth. Additional risk factors to consider are as follows:



  • Smoking: This habit is a strong factor in the progression of gum disease and oral cancer.
  • Genetics: Family history may influence who is more susceptible to gum problems.
  • Diabetes: This systemic disease may cause an individual to have a weaker defense against gum problems. Other systemic diseases such as heart disease and rheumatoid arthritis have been linked to gum problems, as well.
  • Age: Data from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention show that more than 70% of the U.S. population age 65 and older has gum disease.
  • Poor nutrition: Vitamin or nutrient deficiencies in diet can adversely affect the body's ability to fight off infections, including those related to the gums.

I had a lovely experience with great people who explain everything; every step of the way. Everyone should come here, it’s so different to a normal dentist.

I was initially very sceptical to begin with, but once I have the initial implants and returned for my teeth to be made and fitted I was pleased with the way I was treated and the outcome.

Vrushali Bhilare

To Dr. Urvi,I was so unhappy before my treatment, now I grin confidently. I had 8 crowns and 2 bridges fitted. They look so natural; it’s as if I have always had nice teeth. Dr Urvi was careful, gentle and friendly.
