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 might 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 may signal a problem:
- gums that bleed easily.
- red, inflamed, sore gums.
- gums that have actually retreated from the teeth.
- consistent foul breath or bad taste.
- permanent teeth that are separating or loose.
- any change 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 danger of establishing gum disease including smoking, pregnancy, and diabetes. It is essential to visit your dentist if you believe you have gum disease because the earlier you treat it the better.
The early stage of periodontal disease is called gingivitis. If you have gingivitis, your gums may become red, swollen and bleed easily. At this phase, the disease is still fixable and can usually 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 serious in time. If it does, your teeth will feel loose and start moving around in your mouth. It typically becomes worse slowly, however there can be periods of fast progression.
Aggressive periodontitis is a highly damaging kind of gum disease that takes place in patients who are otherwise healthy. Typical features include rapid loss of bone and tissue and might take place in some areas of the mouth, or in the entire mouth.
Research in between systemic diseases and periodontal diseases is ongoing. While a link is not conclusive, some research studies show that severe gum disease might be associated with multiple other health conditions such as stroke or diabetes.
Regular dental appointments and periodontal examinations are extremely important. The treatment methods that most dental practitioners diagnose will rely on the type of disease and how far the condition has actually progressed. Great dental care in your home is vital to help keep periodontal disease from ending up being more serious or recurring.
