Gum Disease (Periodontal Disease)
Gum disease is an infection of the tissues that surround and support your teeth. Since gum disease is normally painless, you may not know you have it. Also called periodontal disease, gum disease is caused by plaque, the sticky film of germs that is continuously forming on our teeth.
Here are some warning signs that can signal a problem:
- gums that bleed too quickly.
- red, swollen, tender gums.
- gums that have retreated 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 change in the fit of partial dentures.
There are many aspects that enhance the risk of developing gum disease including smoking cigarettes, pregnancy, and diabetes. It is necessary to visit your dentist if you presume 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 might end up being red, inflamed and bleed easily. At this phase, the disease is still fixable and can normally be removed by a professional cleaning at your dental office, followed by day-to-day 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 may become more extreme with time. If it does, your teeth will feel loose and start moving around in your mouth. It typically becomes worse slowly, however there can be periods of fast progression.
Aggressive periodontitis is a highly destructive form of periodontal disease that happens in patients who are otherwise healthy. Common features consist of rapid loss of bone and tissue and might happen 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 show that serious periodontal disease might be associated with a number of other health conditions such as stroke or diabetes.
Routine dental appointments and periodontal examinations are very important. The treatment techniques that most dental experts diagnose will depend upon the type of disease and how far the condition has progressed. Excellent dental care at home is vital to help keep gum disease from ending up being more serious or recurring.
