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 germs that is constantly forming on our teeth.
Some warning signs that may signal a problem:
- gums that bleed too quickly.
- red, inflamed, tender gums.
- gums that have pulled away 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 danger of establishing gum disease consisting of smoking cigarettes, pregnancy, and diabetes. It is very important to go to your dentist if you presume 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 might end up being red, inflamed and bleed easily. At this phase, the disease is still fixable and can generally be eliminated by a professional cleaning at your dental office, followed by everyday flossing and brushing.
Advanced periodontal disease is called periodontitis. Chronic periodontitis can result in the loss of bone and tissue that support the teeth and it might end up being more extreme over time. If it does, your teeth will feel loose and start moving around in your mouth. It usually gets worse slowly, however there can be periods of rapid progression.
Aggressive periodontitis is a highly destructive form of gum disease that happens in patients who are otherwise healthy. Typical features consist of rapid loss of bone and tissue and might take place 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 research studies indicate that extreme gum disease might be related to multiple other health conditions such as stroke or diabetes.
Routine dental examinations and gum examinations are extremely important. The treatment methods that most dentists diagnose will depend upon the type of disease and how far the condition has actually advanced. Great dental care in your home is necessary to help keep periodontal disease from becoming more severe or recurring.
