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 usually painless, you might not know you have it. Also called periodontal disease, gum disease is caused by plaque, the sticky film of germs that is continuously forming on our teeth.
Some warning signs that may indicate a problem:
- gums that bleed easily.
- red, swollen, sore gums.
- gums that have pulled away from the teeth.
- consistent bad breath or bad taste.
- permanent teeth that are separating or loose.
- any difference in the way your teeth fit together when you bite.
- any difference in the fit of partial dentures.
There are numerous factors that increase the risk of developing gum disease including smoking cigarettes, pregnancy, and diabetes. It is important to visit your dentist if you suspect you have gum disease because the sooner 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 quickly. At this phase, the disease is still fixable and can generally be eliminated by a professional cleaning at your dental office, followed by daily 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 end up being more serious with time. If it does, your teeth will feel loose and begin moving around in your mouth. It usually gets worse slowly, but there can be periods of fast progression.
Aggressive periodontitis is a highly damaging type of gum disease that happens in patients who are otherwise healthy. Typical features include rapid loss of bone and tissue and may take place 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 research studies suggest that serious periodontal disease might be related to multiple other health conditions such as stroke or diabetes.
Routine dental examinations and gum examinations are extremely important. The treatment techniques that most dental professionals diagnose will rely on the type of disease and how far the condition has actually progressed. Great dental care in your home is vital to help keep gum disease from becoming more serious or recurring.
