Gum Disease (Periodontal Disease)
Gum disease is an infection of the tissues that surround and support your teeth. Since gum disease is generally pain-free, 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.
Here are few warning signs that may indicate an issue:
- gums that bleed too quickly.
- red, inflamed, tender gums.
- gums that have pulled away from the teeth.
- persistent foul 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 numerous factors that enhance the danger of developing gum disease consisting of smoking cigarettes, pregnancy, and diabetes. It is important to visit 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 become red, swollen and bleed easily. At this stage, the disease is still fixable and can typically 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 result in the loss of bone and tissue that support the teeth and it may end up being more extreme 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 rapid progression.
Aggressive periodontitis is a highly damaging form of periodontal disease that occurs in patients who are otherwise healthy. Typical features include rapid loss of bone and tissue and may occur 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 studies show that extreme periodontal disease may be related to multiple other health conditions such as stroke or diabetes.
Regular dental examinations and gum examinations are extremely important. The treatment methods that most dental experts diagnose will depend upon the type of disease and how far the condition has actually progressed. Excellent dental care in your home is necessary to help keep gum disease from becoming more severe or recurring.
