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 called periodontal disease, gum disease is caused by plaque, the sticky film of bacteria that is constantly forming on our teeth.
Some warning signs that can signal 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 difference in the fit of partial dentures.
There are lots of factors that increase 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 sooner you treat it the better.
The early stage of gum disease is called gingivitis. If you have gingivitis, your gums might end up being red, swollen and bleed quickly. At this stage, the disease is still reversible 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 might become more serious over time. If it does, your teeth will feel loose and begin moving around in your mouth. It normally gets worse slowly, but there can be periods of fast progression.
Aggressive periodontitis is a highly destructive kind of periodontal disease that takes place in patients who are otherwise healthy. Typical features include rapid loss of bone and tissue and may happen 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 suggest that serious gum disease may be associated with numerous other health conditions such as stroke or diabetes.
Regular dental examinations and gum examinations are crucial. The treatment techniques that most dental professionals diagnose will depend upon the type of disease and how far the condition has advanced. Good dental care at home is essential to help keep gum disease from becoming more severe or recurring.
