Gum Disease (Periodontal Disease)
Gum disease is an infection of the tissues that surround and support your teeth. Because gum disease is usually pain-free, 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.
Some warning signs that can signal an issue:
- gums that bleed easily.
- red, swollen, tender gums.
- gums that have actually retreated from the teeth.
- consistent 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 change in the fit of partial dentures.
There are numerous aspects that increase the danger of developing gum disease consisting of smoking, pregnancy, and diabetes. It is essential to go to your dentist if you believe 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, swollen and bleed quickly. At this stage, the disease is still fixable and can normally be eliminated 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 cause the loss of bone and tissue that support the teeth and it might end up being more serious with time. If it does, your teeth will feel loose and begin moving around in your mouth. It usually gets worse slowly, however there can be periods of fast progression.
Aggressive periodontitis is a highly destructive kind of gum disease that happens in patients who are otherwise healthy. Common features consist of rapid loss of bone and tissue and might happen 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 suggest that extreme periodontal disease might be associated with a number of other health conditions such as stroke or diabetes.
Regular dental appointments and periodontal examinations are extremely important. The treatment techniques that most dental experts diagnose will depend upon the kind of disease and how far the condition has progressed. Great dental care at home is important to help keep periodontal disease from becoming more severe or recurring.
