Gum Disease (Periodontal Disease)
Gum disease is an infection of the tissues that surround and support your teeth. Due to the fact that gum disease is usually pain-free, you might not know you have it. Also referred to as periodontal disease, gum disease is caused by plaque, the sticky film of germs that is continuously forming on our teeth.
Some warning signs that can indicate a problem:
gums that bleed easily.
red, inflamed, sore gums.
gums that have pulled away from the teeth.
consistent foul breath or bad taste.
permanent teeth that are separating or loose.
any difference in the way your teeth fit together when you bite.
any difference in the fit of partial dentures.
There are numerous aspects that enhance the danger of developing gum disease including smoking cigarettes, pregnancy, and diabetes. It is very important to visit your dentist if you believe you have gum disease because the quicker you treat it the better.
The early stage of gum disease is called gingivitis. If you have gingivitis, your gums might become red, swollen and bleed easily. At this phase, the disease is still reversible and can generally be removed by a professional cleaning at your dental office, followed by day-to-day flossing and brushing.
Advanced gum disease is called periodontitis. Chronic periodontitis can lead to the loss of bone and tissue that support the teeth and it might end up being more extreme in time. If it does, your teeth will feel loose and begin moving around in your mouth. It typically worsens slowly, but there can be periods of fast progression.
Aggressive periodontitis is a highly damaging type of periodontal disease that takes place in patients who are otherwise healthy. Typical features include rapid loss of bone and tissue and might occur in some areas of the mouth, or in the entire mouth.
Research in between systemic diseases and gum diseases is ongoing. While a link is not conclusive, some studies suggest that serious gum disease may be associated with numerous other health conditions such as stroke or diabetes.
Routine dental examinations and periodontal examinations are extremely important. The treatment techniques that most dental professionals diagnose will rely on the type of disease and how far the condition has progressed. Good dental care at home is vital to help keep gum disease from ending up being more severe or recurring.
