Gum Disease (Periodontal Disease)
Gum disease is an infection of the tissues that surround and support your teeth. Since gum disease is usually 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 continuously forming on our teeth.
Here are few warning signs that may signal a problem:
- gums that bleed easily.
- red, inflamed, sore gums.
- gums that have actually pulled away from the teeth.
- persistent 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 factors that increase the risk of developing gum disease consisting of smoking, pregnancy, and diabetes. It is important to go to your dentist if you suspect 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 may become red, swollen and bleed easily. At this stage, the disease is still reversible 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 lead to the loss of bone and tissue that support the teeth and it may become more extreme with time. If it does, your teeth will feel loose and start moving around in your mouth. It normally worsens slowly, however there can be periods of rapid progression.
Aggressive periodontitis is a highly damaging type 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 in between systemic diseases and gum diseases is ongoing. While a link is not conclusive, some research studies indicate that serious gum disease might be associated with a number of other health conditions such as stroke or diabetes.
Routine dental examinations and periodontal examinations are crucial. The treatment techniques that most dentists diagnose will depend upon the kind of disease and how far the condition has actually advanced. Good dental care in your home is essential to help keep gum disease from ending up being more severe or recurring.
