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 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 constantly forming on our teeth.
Some warning signs that can signal an issue:
- gums that bleed easily.
- red, inflamed, tender 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 aspects that increase the danger of developing gum disease including smoking cigarettes, pregnancy, and diabetes. It is essential to visit your dentist if you think 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 may end up being red, swollen and bleed quickly. At this stage, the disease is still reversible and can generally be removed by a professional cleaning at your dental office, followed by day-to-day 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 serious with time. If it does, your teeth will feel loose and begin moving around in your mouth. It usually gets worse slowly, however there can be periods of fast progression.
Aggressive periodontitis is a highly destructive form of gum disease that happens 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 periodontal diseases is ongoing. While a link is not conclusive, some studies indicate that extreme gum disease might be associated with multiple other health conditions such as stroke or diabetes.
Regular dental checkups and periodontal examinations are crucial. The treatment methods that most dental experts diagnose will rely on the type of disease and how far the condition has advanced. Great dental care at home is vital to help keep gum disease from becoming more severe or recurring.
