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 called periodontal disease, gum disease is caused by plaque, the sticky film of germs that is constantly forming on our teeth.
Here are some warning signs that may indicate a problem:
- gums that bleed too quickly.
- red, swollen, tender gums.
- gums that have retreated 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 difference in the fit of partial dentures.
There are many aspects that increase the risk of establishing gum disease consisting of smoking, pregnancy, and diabetes. It is very important to visit your dentist if you think you have gum disease because the faster 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 easily. At this phase, the disease is still fixable and can typically 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 result in the loss of bone and tissue that support the teeth and it may end up being more serious over time. If it does, your teeth will feel loose and begin moving around in your mouth. It normally gets worse slowly, however there can be periods of rapid progression.
Aggressive periodontitis is a highly destructive type of gum disease that takes place in patients who are otherwise healthy. Typical features include 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 periodontal diseases is ongoing. While a link is not conclusive, some research studies indicate that extreme periodontal disease may be related to numerous other health conditions such as stroke or diabetes.
Routine dental appointments and periodontal examinations are crucial. The treatment methods that most dental experts diagnose will depend upon 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 becoming more severe or recurring.
