Gum Disease (Periodontal Disease)
Gum disease is an infection of the tissues that surround and support your teeth. Because gum disease is generally 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 continuously forming on our teeth.
Here are couple warning signs that can indicate a problem:
- gums that bleed easily.
- red, inflamed, tender gums.
- gums that have actually pulled away from the teeth.
- persistent 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 change in the fit of partial dentures.
There are numerous aspects that increase the risk of establishing gum disease including smoking, pregnancy, and diabetes. It is necessary to visit your dentist if you believe 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 may end up being red, inflamed and bleed easily. At this phase, the disease is still reversible 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 lead to the loss of bone and tissue that support the teeth and it might end up being more extreme over 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 form of gum disease that takes place in patients who are otherwise healthy. Common features include 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 suggest that severe periodontal disease might be related to numerous other health conditions such as stroke or diabetes.
Routine dental examinations and periodontal examinations are extremely important. The treatment techniques that most dentists 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.
