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 may not know you have it. Also called 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 indicate an issue:
- gums that bleed easily.
- red, inflamed, tender gums.
- gums that have retreated from the teeth.
- consistent 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 change in the fit of partial dentures.
There are many factors that enhance the danger of establishing gum disease consisting of smoking cigarettes, pregnancy, and diabetes. It is essential to go to your dentist if you think you have gum disease because the quicker you treat it the better.
The early stage of periodontal disease is called gingivitis. If you have gingivitis, your gums might become red, swollen and bleed quickly. At this phase, 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 cause the loss of bone and tissue that support the teeth and it may end up being more severe in 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 rapid progression.
Aggressive periodontitis is a highly destructive kind 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 studies show that severe periodontal disease may be connected with multiple other health conditions such as stroke or diabetes.
Regular dental checkups and periodontal examinations are crucial. The treatment techniques that most dental practitioners diagnose will rely on the kind of disease and how far the condition has actually advanced. Excellent dental care in your home is vital to help keep periodontal disease from becoming more serious or recurring.
