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 normally pain-free, you might 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 some warning signs that can indicate a problem:
- gums that bleed easily.
- red, inflamed, tender gums.
- gums that have pulled away from the teeth.
- consistent 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 many factors that increase the danger of developing gum disease consisting of smoking cigarettes, pregnancy, and diabetes. It is essential to go to your dentist if you think you have gum disease because the faster you treat it the better.
The early stage of gum 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 fixable and can typically be eliminated by a professional cleaning at your dental office, followed by daily flossing and brushing.
Advanced gum 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 begin moving around in your mouth. It normally becomes worse slowly, however there can be periods of fast progression.
Aggressive periodontitis is a highly damaging form of gum disease that takes place in patients who are otherwise healthy. Typical 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 periodontal diseases is ongoing. While a link is not conclusive, some studies indicate that severe periodontal disease may be related to a number of other health conditions such as stroke or diabetes.
Regular dental examinations and periodontal examinations are extremely important. The treatment techniques that most dentists diagnose will rely on the kind of disease and how far the condition has actually advanced. Great dental care in your home is vital to help keep periodontal disease from ending up being more serious or recurring.
