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 typically painless, you might not know you have it. Also referred to as periodontal disease, gum disease is caused by plaque, the sticky film of germs that is constantly forming on our teeth.
Some warning signs that can signal a problem:
- gums that bleed easily.
- red, inflamed, tender gums.
- gums that have pulled away from the teeth.
- consistent 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 numerous factors that increase the risk of developing gum disease including smoking, pregnancy, and diabetes. It is very important to visit your dentist if you suspect you have gum disease because the faster you treat it the better.
The early stage of periodontal disease is called gingivitis. If you have gingivitis, your gums may end up being red, inflamed and bleed easily. At this phase, the disease is still fixable and can typically be eliminated by a professional cleaning at your dental office, followed by day-to-day 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 may become more serious in time. If it does, your teeth will feel loose and start moving around in your mouth. It usually becomes worse slowly, however there can be periods of rapid progression.
Aggressive periodontitis is a highly destructive type of periodontal disease that happens in patients who are otherwise healthy. Typical features include rapid loss of bone and tissue and may occur 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 show that extreme gum disease might be connected with numerous other health conditions such as stroke or diabetes.
Regular dental examinations and gum examinations are extremely important. The treatment techniques that most dental professionals diagnose will rely on the kind of disease and how far the condition has actually progressed. Excellent dental care at home is vital to help keep gum disease from ending up being more serious or recurring.
