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 normally 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 constantly forming on our teeth.
Here are few warning signs that can indicate an issue:
- gums that bleed easily.
- red, inflamed, sore gums.
- gums that have actually pulled away 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 aspects that increase the risk of developing gum disease consisting of smoking, pregnancy, and diabetes. It is important to visit 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 usually be eliminated by a professional cleaning at your dental office, followed by daily flossing and brushing.
Advanced gum disease is called periodontitis. Chronic periodontitis can result in the loss of bone and tissue that support the teeth and it might become more extreme over time. If it does, your teeth will feel loose and start moving around in your mouth. It usually gets worse slowly, however there can be periods of rapid progression.
Aggressive periodontitis is a highly destructive kind of periodontal disease that takes place in patients who are otherwise healthy. Common features include rapid loss of bone and tissue and may happen 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 suggest that severe periodontal disease may be connected with a number of other health conditions such as stroke or diabetes.
Routine dental examinations and gum examinations are crucial. The treatment methods that most dental practitioners diagnose will rely on the kind of disease and how far the condition has advanced. Excellent dental care at home is vital to help keep periodontal disease from becoming more severe or recurring.
