Other Reasons for Gingival Diseases:
Smoking is extremely harmful for oral mucosa and the gums, softening the latter and opening the way to gingival diseases.
According to scientists, genetic makeup is also 30% responsible for gingival diseases.
During periods when hormonal changes induced by pregnancy, puberty, menopause and menstruation are most intense, greater attention must be paid to oral hygiene as gums are more sensitive at such times.
Studies have also shown that stress reduces the body’s ability to fight against infection, which also has an effect on the formation of periodontal diseases.
The use of medication, contraceptive pills, antidepressants and heart pills also affects oral health and can necessitate extra attention to dental care. If you are using any such medication, please inform your dentist before treatment.
