Gum Disease (Periodontal Disease)
Gum disease is an infection of the tissues that surround and support your teeth. Since gum disease is normally 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 germs that is continuously forming on our teeth.
Some warning signs that can indicate an issue:
- gums that bleed too quickly.
- red, inflamed, tender gums.
- gums that have retreated 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 change in the fit of partial dentures.
There are lots of aspects that increase the danger of developing gum disease including smoking cigarettes, pregnancy, and diabetes. It is essential to visit your dentist if you suspect you have gum disease because the earlier you treat it the better.
The early stage of periodontal disease is called gingivitis. If you have gingivitis, your gums might become red, inflamed and bleed easily. At this phase, the disease is still reversible and can normally be removed by a professional cleaning at your dental office, followed by everyday flossing and brushing.
Advanced periodontal disease is called periodontitis. Chronic periodontitis can cause the loss of bone and tissue that support the teeth and it may end up being more severe in time. If it does, your teeth will feel loose and start moving around in your mouth. It usually worsens slowly, but there can be periods of fast progression.
Aggressive periodontitis is a highly damaging kind of periodontal disease that takes place in patients who are otherwise healthy. Typical features consist of rapid loss of bone and tissue and might occur 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 indicate that extreme periodontal disease may be associated with multiple other health conditions such as stroke or diabetes.
Regular dental checkups and periodontal examinations are very important. The treatment methods that most dentists diagnose will rely on the type of disease and how far the condition has actually progressed. Good dental care in your home is vital to help keep periodontal disease from ending up being more severe or recurring.
