Gum Disease (Periodontal Disease)
Gum disease is an infection of the tissues that surround and support your teeth. Because gum disease is typically 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 bacteria that is continuously forming on our teeth.
Some warning signs that may signal an issue:
- gums that bleed too quickly.
- red, inflamed, sore gums.
- gums that have retreated from the teeth.
- consistent foul 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 many factors that enhance the risk of developing gum disease including smoking cigarettes, pregnancy, and diabetes. It is very important 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 might become red, swollen and bleed quickly. At this stage, the disease is still fixable and can usually be removed by a professional cleaning at your dental office, followed by daily flossing and brushing.
Advanced periodontal disease is called periodontitis. Chronic periodontitis can result in the loss of bone and tissue that support the teeth and it may become more severe in time. If it does, your teeth will feel loose and start moving around in your mouth. It typically becomes worse slowly, however there can be periods of fast progression.
Aggressive periodontitis is a highly destructive kind of gum disease that takes place in patients who are otherwise healthy. Typical features include rapid loss of bone and tissue and might take place 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 studies show that severe periodontal disease may be connected with numerous other health conditions such as stroke or diabetes.
Regular dental checkups and gum examinations are essential. The treatment methods that most dental experts diagnose will depend upon the kind of disease and how far the condition has actually progressed. Excellent dental care in your home is necessary to help keep gum disease from becoming more serious or recurring.
