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 generally pain-free, you may not know you have it. Also referred to as periodontal disease, gum disease is caused by plaque, the sticky film of germs that is constantly forming on our teeth.
Some warning signs that may indicate a problem:
- 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 establishing gum disease consisting of smoking cigarettes, pregnancy, and diabetes. It is necessary to go to 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 may become red, swollen and bleed quickly. At this phase, the disease is still fixable and can generally be eliminated 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 extreme with time. If it does, your teeth will feel loose and start moving around in your mouth. It generally gets worse slowly, but there can be periods of rapid progression.
Aggressive periodontitis is a highly destructive type of periodontal disease that happens 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 in between systemic diseases and gum diseases is ongoing. While a link is not conclusive, some research studies indicate that serious periodontal disease might be related to numerous other health conditions such as stroke or diabetes.
Routine dental checkups and periodontal examinations are extremely important. The treatment methods that most dentists diagnose will depend upon the type of disease and how far the condition has progressed. Great dental care in your home is vital to help keep periodontal disease from ending up being more severe or recurring.
