Gum Disease (Periodontal Disease)
Gum disease is an infection of the tissues that surround and support your teeth. Because gum disease is normally 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 constantly forming on our teeth.
Here are some warning signs that may signal a problem:
- gums that bleed too quickly.
- 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 difference in the fit of partial dentures.
There are lots of aspects that enhance the risk 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 gum disease is called gingivitis. If you have gingivitis, your gums may become red, inflamed and bleed easily. At this phase, the disease is still fixable and can typically be eliminated by a professional cleaning at your dental office, followed by daily 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 extreme in time. If it does, your teeth will feel loose and begin moving around in your mouth. It usually worsens slowly, but 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. Typical features consist of rapid loss of bone and tissue and may take place in some areas of the mouth, or in the entire mouth.
Research in between systemic diseases and periodontal diseases is ongoing. While a link is not conclusive, some studies show that severe periodontal disease might be associated with a number of other health conditions such as stroke or diabetes.
Regular dental examinations and gum examinations are essential. The treatment methods that most dental practitioners diagnose will rely on the kind of disease and how far the condition has actually advanced. Good dental care in your home is important to help keep gum disease from ending up being more serious or recurring.
