Gum Disease (Periodontal Disease)
Gum disease is an infection of the tissues that surround and support your teeth. Since gum disease is normally 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 bacteria that is continuously forming on our teeth.
Some warning signs that can indicate an issue:
- gums that bleed easily.
- red, inflamed, sore gums.
- gums that have pulled away from the teeth.
- consistent bad breath or bad taste.
- permanent teeth that are separating or loose.
- any change in the way your teeth fit together when you bite.
- any change in the fit of partial dentures.
There are lots of factors that enhance the risk of developing gum disease consisting of smoking, pregnancy, and diabetes. It is necessary to visit your dentist if you presume you have gum disease because the sooner you treat it the better.
The early stage of gum disease is called gingivitis. If you have gingivitis, your gums may end up being red, swollen and bleed quickly. At this stage, the disease is still fixable and can usually be eliminated by a professional cleaning at your dental office, followed by day-to-day flossing and brushing.
Advanced periodontal disease is called periodontitis. Chronic periodontitis can result in the loss of bone and tissue that support the teeth and it might become more extreme in time. If it does, your teeth will feel loose and start moving around in your mouth. It typically worsens slowly, however there can be periods of rapid progression.
Aggressive periodontitis is a highly damaging kind of periodontal disease that occurs in patients who are otherwise healthy. Common features include rapid loss of bone and tissue and might happen in some areas of the mouth, or in the entire mouth.
Research between systemic diseases and gum diseases is ongoing. While a link is not conclusive, some studies show that serious gum disease might be connected with numerous other health conditions such as stroke or diabetes.
Regular dental examinations and periodontal examinations are very important. The treatment methods that most dentists diagnose will rely on the kind of disease and how far the condition has progressed. Great dental care at home is vital to help keep periodontal disease from becoming more serious or recurring.
