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 normally painless, you may 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.
Here are few warning signs that may signal a problem:
- gums that bleed too quickly.
- red, swollen, tender gums.
- gums that have pulled away from the teeth.
- consistent 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 many aspects that enhance the risk of establishing gum disease consisting of smoking cigarettes, pregnancy, and diabetes. It is necessary to visit 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 quickly. At this phase, the disease is still fixable and can normally 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 cause the loss of bone and tissue that support the teeth and it might end up being more severe with time. If it does, your teeth will feel loose and start moving around in your mouth. It usually gets worse slowly, however there can be periods of fast progression.
Aggressive periodontitis is a highly destructive form of gum disease that occurs in patients who are otherwise healthy. Typical features consist of rapid loss of bone and tissue and may 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 show that extreme periodontal disease may be associated with a number of other health conditions such as stroke or diabetes.
Regular dental appointments and periodontal examinations are very important. The treatment techniques that most dental professionals diagnose will depend upon the type of disease and how far the condition has actually advanced. Excellent dental care in your home is important to help keep periodontal disease from ending up being more serious or recurring.
