Gum Disease (Periodontal Disease)
Gum disease is an infection of the tissues that surround and support your teeth. Because gum disease is normally pain-free, 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 may indicate a problem:
- gums that bleed easily.
- red, inflamed, sore gums.
- gums that have actually retreated from the teeth.
- persistent foul breath or bad taste.
- permanent teeth that are separating or loose.
- any change in the way your teeth fit together when you bite.
- any difference in the fit of partial dentures.
There are numerous aspects that increase the risk of establishing gum disease including smoking cigarettes, pregnancy, and diabetes. It is necessary to go to your dentist if you presume you have gum disease because the quicker you treat it the better.
The early stage of periodontal disease is called gingivitis. If you have gingivitis, your gums might become red, inflamed and bleed easily. At this stage, the disease is still fixable and can normally be removed by a professional cleaning at your dental office, followed by daily flossing and brushing.
Advanced periodontal disease is called periodontitis. Chronic periodontitis can lead to the loss of bone and tissue that support the teeth and it might become more serious over time. If it does, your teeth will feel loose and begin moving around in your mouth. It typically becomes worse slowly, but there can be periods of fast progression.
Aggressive periodontitis is a highly damaging kind of gum disease that occurs 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 periodontal diseases is ongoing. While a link is not conclusive, some studies show that serious gum disease may be connected with multiple other health conditions such as stroke or diabetes.
Regular dental checkups and gum examinations are essential. The treatment methods that most dentists diagnose will rely on the type of disease and how far the condition has progressed. Good dental care at home is important to help keep periodontal disease from becoming more serious or recurring.
