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.
Some warning signs that can indicate an issue:
- gums that bleed easily.
- red, inflamed, sore gums.
- gums that have actually 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 change in the fit of partial dentures.
There are many aspects that increase the risk of developing gum disease including smoking cigarettes, pregnancy, and diabetes. It is essential to go to your dentist if you think you have gum disease because the sooner you treat it the better.
The early stage of periodontal disease is called gingivitis. If you have gingivitis, your gums might end up being red, swollen and bleed easily. At this stage, the disease is still fixable and can typically be removed 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 end up being more extreme with time. If it does, your teeth will feel loose and begin moving around in your mouth. It usually worsens slowly, but there can be periods of fast progression.
Aggressive periodontitis is a highly destructive kind of periodontal disease that occurs in patients who are otherwise healthy. Common features include rapid loss of bone and tissue and may occur 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 studies indicate that extreme gum disease might be related to a number of other health conditions such as stroke or diabetes.
Regular dental checkups and periodontal examinations are extremely important. The treatment techniques that most dental experts diagnose will depend upon the type of disease and how far the condition has progressed. Good dental care at home is essential to help keep periodontal disease from becoming more serious or recurring.
