Gum Disease (Periodontal Disease)
Gum disease is an infection of the tissues that surround and support your teeth. Due to the fact that gum disease is generally painless, 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.
Here are couple warning signs that can signal an issue:
- gums that bleed too quickly.
- red, swollen, sore gums.
- gums that have pulled away from the teeth.
- persistent bad breath or bad taste.
- permanent teeth that are separating or loose.
- any difference in the way your teeth fit together when you bite.
- any difference in the fit of partial dentures.
There are lots of factors that enhance the danger of establishing gum disease including smoking, pregnancy, and diabetes. It is very important to visit 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 become red, swollen and bleed quickly. At this stage, the disease is still fixable and can generally 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 lead to the loss of bone and tissue that support the teeth and it might end up being more severe over time. If it does, your teeth will feel loose and start moving around in your mouth. It generally becomes worse slowly, but there can be periods of fast progression.
Aggressive periodontitis is a highly destructive type of periodontal disease that takes place in patients who are otherwise healthy. Typical features consist of rapid loss of bone and tissue and might take place 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 suggest that extreme gum disease might be related to numerous other health conditions such as stroke or diabetes.
Regular dental appointments and periodontal examinations are crucial. The treatment techniques that most dental experts diagnose will rely on the type of disease and how far the condition has advanced. Excellent dental care in your home is necessary to help keep gum disease from becoming more severe or recurring.
