Gum Disease (Periodontal Disease)
Gum disease is an infection of the tissues that surround and support your teeth. Due to the fact that gum disease is usually painless, you may not know you have it. Also referred to as periodontal disease, gum disease is caused by plaque, the sticky film of bacteria that is constantly forming on our teeth.
Here are few warning signs that may signal an issue:
- gums that bleed too quickly.
- red, inflamed, tender gums.
- gums that have actually pulled away from the teeth.
- consistent 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 difference in the fit of partial dentures.
There are many factors that enhance the danger of establishing gum disease including smoking, pregnancy, and diabetes. It is essential to visit your dentist if you suspect you have gum disease because the faster you treat it the better.
The early stage of gum disease is called gingivitis. If you have gingivitis, your gums might become red, swollen and bleed quickly. At this stage, the disease is still reversible and can typically be eliminated by a professional cleaning at your dental office, followed by everyday flossing and brushing.
Advanced gum disease is called periodontitis. Chronic periodontitis can cause the loss of bone and tissue that support the teeth and it might become more serious with time. If it does, your teeth will feel loose and begin moving around in your mouth. It typically worsens slowly, but there can be periods of fast progression.
Aggressive periodontitis is a highly damaging form of periodontal disease that occurs in patients who are otherwise healthy. Typical features consist of rapid loss of bone and tissue and may happen 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 suggest that extreme gum disease may be connected with a number of other health conditions such as stroke or diabetes.
Routine dental checkups and periodontal examinations are extremely important. The treatment methods that most dental practitioners diagnose will depend upon the type of disease and how far the condition has advanced. Excellent dental care in your home is important to help keep periodontal disease from ending up being more serious or recurring.
