Gum Disease (Periodontal Disease)
Gum disease is an infection of the tissues that surround and support your teeth. Since gum disease is usually 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 constantly forming on our teeth.
Some warning signs that can indicate an issue:
- gums that bleed easily.
- 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 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 cigarettes, pregnancy, and diabetes. It is important to go to your dentist if you believe you have gum disease because the sooner 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, swollen and bleed quickly. At this phase, the disease is still reversible and can usually be removed 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 cause the loss of bone and tissue that support the teeth and it may become more extreme in time. If it does, your teeth will feel loose and start moving around in your mouth. It generally gets worse slowly, however there can be periods of rapid progression.
Aggressive periodontitis is a highly damaging kind of periodontal disease that happens in patients who are otherwise healthy. Typical features include 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 studies indicate that severe gum disease may be related to numerous other health conditions such as stroke or diabetes.
Routine dental examinations and periodontal examinations are very important. The treatment techniques that most dentists diagnose will rely on the type of disease and how far the condition has advanced. Great dental care in your home is important to help keep gum disease from becoming more severe or recurring.
