These are basically all symptoms of gum disease which is of varying severity – as low as a small inflammation of gums to major damage to the gum tissues that hold your teeth in position.
Causes of gum diseases
Gum diseases can be mainly attributed to improper cleansing and noneffective dental care due to which the bacteria starts accumulating in our mouth and thus forms a yellow sticky layer called plaque.
