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 generally 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.
Some warning signs that can signal a problem:
- gums that bleed easily.
- red, swollen, tender gums.
- gums that have pulled away from the teeth.
- consistent 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 lots of aspects that increase the risk of establishing gum disease including smoking cigarettes, pregnancy, and diabetes. It is essential to go to 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 might become red, swollen and bleed quickly. At this phase, the disease is still reversible and can generally be eliminated by a professional cleaning at your dental office, followed by daily 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 over time. If it does, your teeth will feel loose and begin moving around in your mouth. It usually gets worse 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. Common features consist of 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 periodontal disease may be associated with multiple other health conditions such as stroke or diabetes.
Routine dental examinations and gum examinations are crucial. The treatment techniques that most dentists diagnose will rely on the type of disease and how far the condition has advanced. Great dental care in your home is necessary to help keep gum disease from becoming more severe or recurring.
