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 painless, you may not know you have it. Also referred to as periodontal disease, gum disease is caused by plaque, the sticky film of bacteria that is continuously forming on our teeth.
Here are some warning signs that may indicate a problem:
- gums that bleed easily.
- red, swollen, sore gums.
- gums that have retreated from the teeth.
- consistent 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 change in the fit of partial dentures.
There are many factors that increase the risk of developing gum disease consisting of smoking, pregnancy, and diabetes. It is necessary to go to 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 may become red, inflamed and bleed easily. At this stage, the disease is still fixable and can generally be eliminated 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 become more serious in time. If it does, your teeth will feel loose and start moving around in your mouth. It usually becomes worse slowly, however there can be periods of fast progression.
Aggressive periodontitis is a highly destructive type of periodontal disease that occurs in patients who are otherwise healthy. Common features include rapid loss of bone and tissue and may occur 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 research studies suggest that extreme periodontal disease might be connected with numerous other health conditions such as stroke or diabetes.
Regular dental appointments and gum examinations are very important. The treatment methods that most dental professionals diagnose will depend upon the kind of disease and how far the condition has progressed. Great dental care at home is essential to help keep periodontal disease from ending up being more serious or recurring.
