Gum Disease (Periodontal Disease)
Gum disease is an infection of the tissues that surround and support your teeth. Because 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.
Here are few warning signs that can signal an issue:
- 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 change in the fit of partial dentures.
There are lots of aspects that enhance the risk of establishing gum disease including smoking, pregnancy, and diabetes. It is very important to go to your dentist if you believe you have gum disease because the earlier 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 easily. At this phase, 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 periodontal disease is called periodontitis. Chronic periodontitis can cause the loss of bone and tissue that support the teeth and it might become more severe in 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 rapid progression.
Aggressive periodontitis is a highly damaging form of periodontal disease that happens in patients who are otherwise healthy. Common features include rapid loss of bone and tissue and may 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 show that severe periodontal disease may be connected with a number of other health conditions such as stroke or diabetes.
Routine dental examinations and periodontal examinations are essential. The treatment techniques that most dental experts diagnose will rely on the type of disease and how far the condition has actually advanced. Excellent dental care in your home is vital to help keep periodontal disease from becoming more severe or recurring.
