Gum Disease (Periodontal Disease)
Gum disease is an infection of the tissues that surround and support your teeth. Since gum disease is typically pain-free, you might 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.
Here are few warning signs that can indicate a problem:
- 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 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 increase the risk of developing gum disease consisting of smoking cigarettes, pregnancy, and diabetes. It is essential to visit your dentist if you think 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, inflamed and bleed quickly. At this stage, the disease is still reversible and can generally be removed by a professional cleaning at your dental office, followed by everyday flossing and brushing.
Advanced gum disease is called periodontitis. Chronic periodontitis can lead to the loss of bone and tissue that support the teeth and it may become more serious over time. If it does, your teeth will feel loose and start moving around in your mouth. It generally becomes worse slowly, however there can be periods of fast progression.
Aggressive periodontitis is a highly destructive kind of gum disease that takes place 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 between systemic diseases and periodontal diseases is ongoing. While a link is not conclusive, some research studies suggest that serious gum disease may be related to multiple other health conditions such as stroke or diabetes.
Regular dental appointments and periodontal examinations are crucial. The treatment methods that most dental experts diagnose will rely on the kind of disease and how far the condition has actually progressed. Good dental care in your home is vital to help keep gum disease from becoming more severe or recurring.
