  • Women possess most of the hormonal changes in different stages of their life; these changes affect almost every part of their body, even making their gums vulnerable and soft.
  • Most of the time, the plague will develop on the tooth, and bacteria also help to deposit some minerals onto the teeth, called tartar. This tartar leads to further growth of the bacteria and affects the teeth badly.
  • Brushing your teeth forcefully, the enamel on the teeth gets whittle down, which automatically causes gum disease.
  • The mouth remains dry most of the time, which means insufficient saliva, which ultimately weakens the gum tissues, causing gum diseases.
  • Some people possess irregular teeth alignment, which causes more pressure onto the gums, which causes inflammation and even recedes the gums.
  • The presence of tobacco leads to the deposit of the plague onto the tooth, which causes gum recession.
  • Consumption of tobacco and other drugs will also affect your gums badly.
  • Stress can also weaken your immune system and get affected by bacterial attacks.
  • Less saliva production will also affect your gums badly.
  • Crooked/disoriented teeth will be suspected for the accumulation of plague, which is harder to remove and causes gum diseases.
  • A cancer patient can easily become a victim of receding gums as their immune system is very weak.
  • Medication like antiseizure increases the rate of gum diseases
  • The use of junk food is very common these days; people usually don't follow the prescribed methods of cleansing the tooth after consuming this type of food.


Periodontitis will cause loss of your teeth. The disease-causing bacteria will enter into your bloodstream through your gum tissues and affect your body parts.
