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 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 bacteria that is continuously forming on our teeth.
Here are couple warning signs that may signal an issue:
- gums that bleed too quickly.
- red, swollen, sore gums.
- gums that have retreated from the teeth.
- consistent foul 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 increase the risk of developing gum disease including smoking, pregnancy, and diabetes. It is very important to go to your dentist if you believe you have gum disease because the quicker you treat it the better.
The early stage of gum disease is called gingivitis. If you have gingivitis, your gums may end up being red, swollen and bleed easily. At this phase, the disease is still reversible and can usually be removed by a professional cleaning at your dental office, followed by daily flossing and brushing.
Advanced gum disease is called periodontitis. Chronic periodontitis can result in the loss of bone and tissue that support the teeth and it might become more serious with time. If it does, your teeth will feel loose and begin moving around in your mouth. It typically gets worse slowly, but there can be periods of rapid progression.
Aggressive periodontitis is a highly destructive type of gum disease that occurs in patients who are otherwise healthy. Common 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 between systemic diseases and periodontal diseases is ongoing. While a link is not conclusive, some research studies suggest that serious periodontal disease may be associated with numerous other health conditions such as stroke or diabetes.
Routine dental checkups and gum examinations are very important. The treatment methods that most dental experts diagnose will depend upon the type of disease and how far the condition has actually progressed. Great dental care at home is important to help keep periodontal disease from becoming more severe or recurring.
