Poor Nutrition

Nutritional deficiencies contribute to weakened gum health. A diet lacking in essential nutrients, particularly vitamin C, compromises the body's ability to fight infections

Hormonal Changes

Hormonal fluctuations, such as those during pregnancy and menopause, can impact gum health. Increased sensitivity and a higher risk of gum inflammation are common. 

Medical Conditions

Certain medical conditions, including diabetes and cardiovascular diseases, are linked to an elevated risk of gum disease. Auckland Family Dental emphasizes the importance of holistic health management, collaborating with healthcare providers to address underlying conditions that may contribute to gum issues.
