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 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.
Some warning signs that may indicate an issue:
- gums that bleed easily.
- red, inflamed, tender gums.
- gums that have actually retreated 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 difference in the fit of partial dentures.
There are numerous aspects that increase the risk of establishing gum disease including smoking cigarettes, pregnancy, and diabetes. It is important to go to your dentist if you suspect 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 may become red, swollen and bleed easily. At this stage, the disease is still reversible and can normally 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 cause the loss of bone and tissue that support the teeth and it may become more severe in time. If it does, your teeth will feel loose and begin moving around in your mouth. It normally gets worse slowly, however there can be periods of rapid progression.
Aggressive periodontitis is a highly damaging type of gum disease that happens in patients who are otherwise healthy. Common features include rapid loss of bone and tissue and might 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 studies suggest that extreme periodontal disease may be connected with multiple other health conditions such as stroke or diabetes.
Routine dental checkups and periodontal examinations are very important. The treatment techniques that most dental professionals diagnose will depend upon the type of disease and how far the condition has actually progressed. Good dental care in your home is necessary to help keep periodontal disease from becoming more severe or recurring.
