Gum Disease (Periodontal Disease)
Gum disease is an infection of the tissues that surround and support your teeth. Since gum disease is generally painless, you may not know you have it. Also referred to as periodontal disease, gum disease is caused by plaque, the sticky film of bacteria that is constantly forming on our teeth.
Some warning signs that may indicate an issue:
- gums that bleed too quickly.
- red, swollen, 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 aspects that increase the risk of developing gum disease including smoking, pregnancy, and diabetes. It is very important to visit 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 end up being red, inflamed and bleed easily. At this phase, the disease is still fixable and can normally be eliminated 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 result in the loss of bone and tissue that support the teeth and it may become more extreme with time. If it does, your teeth will feel loose and start moving around in your mouth. It normally gets worse slowly, however there can be periods of fast progression.
Aggressive periodontitis is a highly damaging type of gum disease that happens in patients who are otherwise healthy. Common features include rapid loss of bone and tissue and might 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 suggest that severe gum disease might be connected with multiple other health conditions such as stroke or diabetes.
Routine dental examinations and periodontal examinations are essential. The treatment methods that most dental professionals diagnose will depend upon the kind of disease and how far the condition has progressed. Good dental care in your home is necessary to help keep periodontal disease from becoming more serious or recurring.
