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 constantly forming on our teeth.
Some warning signs that can signal an issue:
- gums that bleed too quickly.
- red, swollen, sore gums.
- gums that have retreated 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 difference in the fit of partial dentures.
There are many factors that increase the risk of establishing gum disease consisting of smoking cigarettes, pregnancy, and diabetes. It is very important to go to your dentist if you suspect you have gum disease because the quicker you treat it the better.
The early stage of periodontal disease is called gingivitis. If you have gingivitis, your gums may become red, inflamed and bleed quickly. At this phase, the disease is still fixable and can usually 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 serious over time. If it does, your teeth will feel loose and start moving around in your mouth. It normally becomes worse slowly, however there can be periods of fast progression.
Aggressive periodontitis is a highly destructive type of periodontal disease that happens in patients who are otherwise healthy. Common features consist of rapid loss of bone and tissue and might occur 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 gum disease might be connected with a number of other health conditions such as stroke or diabetes.
Regular dental examinations and gum examinations are crucial. The treatment methods that most dental professionals diagnose will depend upon the kind of disease and how far the condition has progressed. Excellent dental care in your home is essential to help keep periodontal disease from ending up being more serious or recurring.
