Gum Disease (Periodontal Disease)
Gum disease is an infection of the tissues that surround and support your teeth. Since gum disease is usually painless, you might 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 signal an issue:
- gums that bleed too quickly.
- red, swollen, sore 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 lots of factors that enhance the risk of developing gum disease including smoking cigarettes, pregnancy, and diabetes. It is very important to go to your dentist if you think you have gum disease because the quicker you treat it the better.
The early stage of gum disease is called gingivitis. If you have gingivitis, your gums may end up being red, swollen 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 daily flossing and brushing.
Advanced periodontal 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 severe with 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 form of periodontal disease that takes place in patients who are otherwise healthy. Common features consist of 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 gum diseases is ongoing. While a link is not conclusive, some studies show that severe periodontal disease may be connected with a number of other health conditions such as stroke or diabetes.
Routine dental checkups and gum examinations are crucial. The treatment methods that most dental practitioners diagnose will rely on the kind of disease and how far the condition has progressed. Good dental care in your home is essential to help keep periodontal disease from ending up being more serious or recurring.
