Gum Disease (Periodontal Disease)
Gum disease is an infection of the tissues that surround and support your teeth. Because gum disease is usually 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 can indicate a problem:
- gums that bleed easily.
- red, swollen, sore gums.
- gums that have actually retreated from the teeth.
- persistent 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 difference in the fit of partial dentures.
There are many factors that enhance the danger of developing gum disease consisting of smoking, pregnancy, and diabetes. It is necessary to go to your dentist if you believe you have gum disease because the sooner 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, inflamed and bleed quickly. At this phase, the disease is still reversible and can typically 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 lead to the loss of bone and tissue that support the teeth and it may end up being more extreme over time. If it does, your teeth will feel loose and start moving around in your mouth. It usually gets worse slowly, however there can be periods of rapid progression.
Aggressive periodontitis is a highly destructive form of periodontal 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 periodontal diseases is ongoing. While a link is not conclusive, some studies show that extreme periodontal disease may be related to multiple other health conditions such as stroke or diabetes.
Regular dental examinations and periodontal examinations are essential. The treatment techniques that most dental experts diagnose will rely on the kind of disease and how far the condition has progressed. Good dental care in your home is vital to help keep gum disease from becoming more severe or recurring.
