Gum Disease (Periodontal Disease)
Gum disease is an infection of the tissues that surround and support your teeth. Because gum disease is usually painless, you may 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.
Some warning signs that may signal a problem:
- gums that bleed easily.
- red, swollen, sore gums.
- gums that have actually 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 difference in the fit of partial dentures.
There are many factors that enhance the risk of establishing gum disease including smoking, pregnancy, and diabetes. It is very important to visit your dentist if you think 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 quickly. At this stage, the disease is still reversible and can typically be removed by a professional cleaning at your dental office, followed by everyday flossing and brushing.
Advanced gum disease is called periodontitis. Chronic periodontitis can lead to the loss of bone and tissue that support the teeth and it might become more severe with time. If it does, your teeth will feel loose and begin moving around in your mouth. It usually becomes worse slowly, but there can be periods of rapid progression.
Aggressive periodontitis is a highly damaging form of gum disease that happens in patients who are otherwise healthy. Typical features consist of rapid loss of bone and tissue and may 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 extreme gum disease may be connected with multiple other health conditions such as stroke or diabetes.
Routine dental appointments and gum examinations are extremely important. The treatment techniques that most dental experts diagnose will depend upon the kind of disease and how far the condition has actually progressed. Good dental care in your home is important to help keep gum disease from ending up being more severe or recurring.
