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 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 few warning signs that can signal a problem:
- gums that bleed easily.
- red, inflamed, sore 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 many aspects that enhance the risk of establishing gum disease including smoking, pregnancy, and diabetes. It is essential to visit 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 become red, inflamed and bleed quickly. At this phase, the disease is still reversible and can usually be eliminated 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 severe with time. If it does, your teeth will feel loose and begin moving around in your mouth. It normally worsens slowly, however there can be periods of fast progression.
Aggressive periodontitis is a highly damaging form of periodontal disease that occurs in patients who are otherwise healthy. Common features consist of rapid loss of bone and tissue and may 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 studies suggest that serious gum disease might be associated with a number of other health conditions such as stroke or diabetes.
Regular dental examinations and periodontal examinations are crucial. The treatment techniques that most dental practitioners diagnose will depend upon the type of disease and how far the condition has actually progressed. Excellent dental care in your home is necessary to help keep periodontal disease from becoming more serious or recurring.
