Gum Disease (Periodontal Disease)
Gum disease is an infection of the tissues that surround and support your teeth. Since 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 bacteria that is constantly forming on our teeth.
Some warning signs that may signal a problem:
- gums that bleed too quickly.
- red, inflamed, tender gums.
- gums that have actually retreated from the teeth.
- persistent 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 change in the fit of partial dentures.
There are lots of factors that increase the risk of developing gum disease consisting of smoking, pregnancy, and diabetes. It is essential to go to your dentist if you presume you have gum disease because the faster you treat it the better.
The early stage of periodontal disease is called gingivitis. If you have gingivitis, your gums may end up being red, swollen and bleed easily. At this phase, the disease is still fixable and can typically be removed by a professional cleaning at your dental office, followed by daily flossing and brushing.
Advanced periodontal disease is called periodontitis. Chronic periodontitis can lead to the loss of bone and tissue that support the teeth and it might become more severe over time. If it does, your teeth will feel loose and begin moving around in your mouth. It typically gets worse slowly, but there can be periods of fast progression.
Aggressive periodontitis is a highly destructive type of periodontal disease that takes place 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 in between systemic diseases and periodontal diseases is ongoing. While a link is not conclusive, some studies suggest that serious gum disease may be related to numerous other health conditions such as stroke or diabetes.
Routine dental examinations and periodontal examinations are essential. The treatment techniques that most dental experts diagnose will rely on the kind of disease and how far the condition has actually progressed. Excellent dental care at home is essential to help keep gum disease from ending up being more severe or recurring.
