Gum Disease (Periodontal Disease)
Gum disease is an infection of the tissues that surround and support your teeth. Because gum disease is normally pain-free, you may not know you have it. Also called periodontal disease, gum disease is caused by plaque, the sticky film of bacteria that is constantly forming on our teeth.
Some warning signs that may indicate a problem:
- gums that bleed too quickly.
- red, swollen, sore gums.
- gums that have pulled away 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 lots of aspects that enhance the risk of developing gum disease including smoking, pregnancy, and diabetes. It is essential to go to your dentist if you presume you have gum disease because the earlier 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, inflamed and bleed quickly. At this phase, the disease is still reversible and can typically be eliminated by a professional cleaning at your dental office, followed by everyday flossing and brushing.
Advanced periodontal disease is called periodontitis. Chronic periodontitis can cause the loss of bone and tissue that support the teeth and it might end up being more severe in time. If it does, your teeth will feel loose and begin moving around in your mouth. It typically gets worse slowly, but there can be periods of fast progression.
Aggressive periodontitis is a highly damaging form of gum disease that occurs in patients who are otherwise healthy. Typical features include rapid loss of bone and tissue and may take place 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 associated with multiple other health conditions such as stroke or diabetes.
Regular dental examinations and periodontal examinations are extremely important. The treatment methods that most dental experts diagnose will depend upon the kind of disease and how far the condition has progressed. Great dental care in your home is necessary to help keep gum disease from ending up being more serious or recurring.
