Gum Disease (Periodontal Disease)
Gum disease is an infection of the tissues that surround and support your teeth. Because gum disease is generally 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.
Some warning signs that can signal a problem:
- gums that bleed too quickly.
- red, inflamed, 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 change in the fit of partial dentures.
There are numerous factors that increase the risk of developing gum disease consisting of smoking, pregnancy, and diabetes. It is necessary to visit your dentist if you believe 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 normally be removed by a professional cleaning at your dental office, followed by everyday 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 might end up being more serious in time. If it does, your teeth will feel loose and begin moving around in your mouth. It usually worsens slowly, however there can be periods of rapid progression.
Aggressive periodontitis is a highly destructive type of gum disease that happens in patients who are otherwise healthy. Typical features consist of rapid loss of bone and tissue and may occur 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 research studies show that serious gum disease might be associated with a number of other health conditions such as stroke or diabetes.
Regular dental appointments and gum examinations are crucial. The treatment methods that most dental experts diagnose will rely on the type of disease and how far the condition has progressed. Great dental care in your home is important to help keep gum disease from ending up being more severe or recurring.
