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 typically painless, you might not know you have it. Also called periodontal disease, gum disease is caused by plaque, the sticky film of bacteria that is continuously forming on our teeth.
Some warning signs that may signal an issue:
- gums that bleed easily.
- red, swollen, tender gums.
- gums that have retreated from the teeth.
- persistent 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 numerous aspects that enhance the risk of establishing gum disease including smoking, pregnancy, and diabetes. It is essential to go to your dentist if you believe 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, inflamed and bleed easily. At this stage, the disease is still reversible and can generally be removed by a professional cleaning at your dental office, followed by daily 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 might become more serious over time. If it does, your teeth will feel loose and start moving around in your mouth. It generally becomes worse slowly, but there can be periods of fast progression.
Aggressive periodontitis is a highly damaging type of gum disease that occurs in patients who are otherwise healthy. Typical features include rapid loss of bone and tissue and might occur in some areas of the mouth, or in the entire mouth.
Research between systemic diseases and periodontal diseases is ongoing. While a link is not conclusive, some research studies show that serious periodontal disease might be related to a number of other health conditions such as stroke or diabetes.
Regular dental checkups and periodontal examinations are essential. The treatment techniques that most dentists diagnose will rely on the type of disease and how far the condition has actually progressed. Excellent dental care in your home is important to help keep periodontal disease from becoming more severe or recurring.
