Gum Disease (Periodontal Disease)
Gum disease is an infection of the tissues that surround and support your teeth. Since gum disease is normally painless, you may 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.
Here are few warning signs that may indicate a problem:
- gums that bleed easily.
- red, swollen, tender gums.
- gums that have actually pulled away from the teeth.
- persistent foul 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 many factors that enhance the danger of developing gum disease including smoking, pregnancy, and diabetes. It is very important to go to your dentist if you presume you have gum disease because the earlier you treat it the better.
The early stage of gum disease is called gingivitis. If you have gingivitis, your gums might become red, inflamed and bleed quickly. At this phase, the disease is still reversible and can generally be removed by a professional cleaning at your dental office, followed by day-to-day 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 become more extreme over time. If it does, your teeth will feel loose and start moving around in your mouth. It generally worsens slowly, however there can be periods of fast progression.
Aggressive periodontitis is a highly destructive kind 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 gum diseases is ongoing. While a link is not conclusive, some studies show that serious periodontal disease may be associated with a number of other health conditions such as stroke or diabetes.
Regular dental appointments and gum examinations are crucial. The treatment techniques that most dentists diagnose will rely on the kind of disease and how far the condition has advanced. Excellent dental care in your home is essential to help keep periodontal disease from becoming more serious or recurring.
