Gum Disease (Periodontal Disease)
Gum disease is an infection of the tissues that surround and support your teeth. Because gum disease is typically pain-free, 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 couple warning signs that can indicate a problem:
- gums that bleed too quickly.
- red, swollen, sore gums.
- gums that have actually 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 lots of aspects that enhance the risk of developing gum disease consisting of smoking cigarettes, pregnancy, and diabetes. It is essential to visit your dentist if you suspect 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 might become red, swollen and bleed easily. At this stage, the disease is still reversible and can usually 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 may end up being more severe with time. If it does, your teeth will feel loose and begin moving around in your mouth. It normally worsens slowly, but there can be periods of fast progression.
Aggressive periodontitis is a highly damaging kind of gum disease that happens in patients who are otherwise healthy. Common features include rapid loss of bone and tissue and might 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 research studies suggest that severe gum disease might be associated with a number of other health conditions such as stroke or diabetes.
Regular dental checkups and gum examinations are crucial. The treatment techniques that most dental experts diagnose will depend upon the type of disease and how far the condition has actually progressed. Good dental care in your home is necessary to help keep gum disease from becoming more severe or recurring.
