Gum Disease (Periodontal Disease)
Gum disease is an infection of the tissues that surround and support your teeth. Since gum disease is typically 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 signal a problem:
- gums that bleed easily.
- red, inflamed, tender 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 difference in the fit of partial dentures.
There are numerous factors that increase the danger of developing gum disease including smoking cigarettes, pregnancy, and diabetes. It is very important 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 may end up being red, swollen and bleed quickly. At this stage, the disease is still fixable 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 cause the loss of bone and tissue that support the teeth and it may end up being more severe in time. If it does, your teeth will feel loose and begin moving around in your mouth. It generally becomes worse slowly, but there can be periods of fast progression.
Aggressive periodontitis is a highly damaging form of periodontal disease that occurs in patients who are otherwise healthy. Common features consist of rapid loss of bone and tissue and might take place 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 indicate that serious gum disease might be associated with multiple other health conditions such as stroke or diabetes.
Routine dental checkups and gum examinations are extremely important. The treatment techniques that most dentists diagnose will rely on the kind of disease and how far the condition has actually advanced. Great dental care at home is necessary to help keep periodontal disease from becoming more severe or recurring.
