Gum Disease (Periodontal Disease)
Gum disease is an infection of the tissues that surround and support your teeth. Since gum disease is typically painless, 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.
Here are few warning signs that can signal a problem:
- gums that bleed too quickly.
- red, inflamed, sore gums.
- gums that have 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 lots of aspects that enhance the risk of developing gum disease consisting of smoking, pregnancy, and diabetes. It is very important to visit your dentist if you think you have gum disease because the earlier you treat it the better.
The early stage of gum 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 normally be eliminated by a professional cleaning at your dental office, followed by everyday flossing and brushing.
Advanced periodontal disease is called periodontitis. Chronic periodontitis can cause the loss of bone and tissue that support the teeth and it may become more severe in time. If it does, your teeth will feel loose and start moving around in your mouth. It usually worsens slowly, however there can be periods of rapid progression.
Aggressive periodontitis is a highly destructive kind of gum disease that takes place 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 in between systemic diseases and gum diseases is ongoing. While a link is not conclusive, some research studies suggest that extreme periodontal disease may be related to a number of other health conditions such as stroke or diabetes.
Regular dental examinations and periodontal examinations are crucial. The treatment techniques that most dental experts diagnose will rely on the kind of disease and how far the condition has actually advanced. Good dental care at home is necessary to help keep periodontal disease from becoming more serious or recurring.
