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 might not know you have it. Also called periodontal disease, gum disease is caused by plaque, the sticky film of germs that is constantly forming on our teeth.
Here are couple warning signs that can signal an issue:
- gums that bleed easily.
- 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 change in the way your teeth fit together when you bite.
- any difference in the fit of partial dentures.
There are numerous factors that increase the danger of establishing gum disease including smoking, pregnancy, and diabetes. It is very important to visit your dentist if you suspect you have gum disease because the faster 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, swollen and bleed quickly. At this phase, the disease is still reversible and can normally 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 end up being more serious with time. If it does, your teeth will feel loose and start moving around in your mouth. It usually becomes worse slowly, but there can be periods of rapid progression.
Aggressive periodontitis is a highly damaging type of periodontal disease that occurs in patients who are otherwise healthy. Common features consist of 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 gum diseases is ongoing. While a link is not conclusive, some research studies suggest that severe gum disease might be associated with multiple other health conditions such as stroke or diabetes.
Routine dental checkups and gum examinations are extremely important. The treatment techniques that most dental professionals diagnose will rely on the kind of disease and how far the condition has progressed. Great dental care in your home is necessary to help keep gum disease from ending up being more severe or recurring.
