Gum Disease (Periodontal Disease)
Gum disease is an infection of the tissues that surround and support your teeth. Since gum disease is typically pain-free, you might 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 may signal a problem:
- gums that bleed too quickly.
- red, inflamed, sore gums.
- gums that have pulled away from the teeth.
- persistent 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 lots of aspects that enhance the risk of developing gum disease consisting of smoking, pregnancy, and diabetes. It is important to go to your dentist if you think 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 become red, swollen and bleed easily. At this stage, the disease is still fixable and can generally be eliminated 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 result in the loss of bone and tissue that support the teeth and it might become more extreme over time. If it does, your teeth will feel loose and start moving around in your mouth. It typically worsens slowly, however there can be periods of rapid 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 happen 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 indicate that extreme periodontal disease may be related to a number of other health conditions such as stroke or diabetes.
Routine dental checkups and periodontal examinations are essential. The treatment methods 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 vital to help keep periodontal disease from ending up being more serious or recurring.
