Gum Disease (Periodontal Disease)
Gum disease is an infection of the tissues that surround and support your teeth. Since gum disease is normally painless, you may not know you have it. Also called 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 actually pulled away from the teeth.
- persistent bad breath or bad taste.
- permanent teeth that are separating or loose.
- any difference in the way your teeth fit together when you bite.
- any change in the fit of partial dentures.
There are numerous factors that increase the danger of developing gum disease consisting of smoking, pregnancy, and diabetes. It is very important 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 might end up being red, swollen and bleed easily. At this stage, the disease is still reversible and can normally be removed by a professional cleaning at your dental office, followed by everyday flossing and brushing.
Advanced periodontal disease is called periodontitis. Chronic periodontitis can cause the loss of bone and tissue that support the teeth and it may become more extreme over time. If it does, your teeth will feel loose and begin moving around in your mouth. It usually becomes worse slowly, however there can be periods of fast progression.
Aggressive periodontitis is a highly damaging type of gum disease that occurs in patients who are otherwise healthy. Typical features consist of rapid loss of bone and tissue and may occur 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 research studies indicate that severe periodontal disease may be associated with a number of other health conditions such as stroke or diabetes.
Routine dental examinations and gum examinations are crucial. The treatment methods that most dental professionals diagnose will rely on the kind of disease and how far the condition has progressed. Great dental care in your home is necessary to help keep gum disease from ending up being more serious or recurring.
