Do you have the same habit as hers?

A 28-year-old woman in China has just had a surgery changing her whole life: to take out all her teeth.

It’s not because she had an accident, or she wants the beauty surgery. No, she has the doctor take out all of her teeth due to her serious case: gum disease.

For years, Ms. Manh doesn’t know what it’s like to bite her teeth onto a meat or popcorn. She couldn’t eat thing that is too hard because all her teeth is too weak to hold it all. She can only eat soup or soft food.

Until one evening when she was carefully brushing her teeth, her two front teeth fell off.

Next morning, Ms.Manh rushed to the hospital to have her teeth checked, and froze for a good 20 minutes after hearing his diagnose: she has to get rid of all her teeth to have them replace. All because she let her gum disease untreated for years.

Gum disease (known as periodontal disease) has serious consequences for your dental health. It’s a chronic condition that can proceed quickly in different people. In the worst cases, it results in teeth that are infected and loose and need to be removed.

Gum disease (known as periodontal disease) has serious consequences for your dental health.

We know that bleeding gums is closely connected to how we brush and floss. And most people that I see in the dental practice don’t brush and floss enough. But removing plaque is one part of the story. Gum disease is a sign of many other problems throughout the body. If you’re suspicious you have gum disease, then these five signs may tell you it’s time to see the dentist.

1) Bleeding Gums Gums should not bleed when you brush and floss. As a general rule, if you aren’t a routine flosser, bacteria buildup below the gums may cause your gums to bleed each time you brush. This can also spread and cause bleeding when you brush your gums. If the problem persists, the bleeding usually worsens.

2) Gum Recession or Gum ‘Pocketing’

Do your teeth look like they are getting longer? Teeth that appear “long” may be due to fact that the gums that surround them are receding away. Gum recession is a sign that gum disease is progressing.

3) Tooth Sensitivity

Gum recession or pocketing can lead to tooth sensitivity. In these cases, sensitivity can be a sign of gum disease. Chronically inflamed gum tissue is exposing the root surface of the tooth. This exposed root makes the tooth more susceptible to decay, abfraction (wear in the root surface), tooth sensitivity, and potential tooth loss.

4) High Blood Sugar If your blood sugar is high, you may have or be at risk of type 2 diabetes. The link between gum disease and type 2 diabetes is two-directional. People with type 2 diabetes have a higher risk of gum disease that progresses faster. That’s why it’s important for your dentist to know whether you have type 2 diabetes or not.
