Gum Disease (Periodontal Disease)
Gum disease is an infection of the tissues that surround and support your teeth. Since gum disease is usually 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 can signal an issue:
- gums that bleed easily.
- red, inflamed, tender gums.
- gums that have retreated from the teeth.
- persistent foul 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 lots of factors that enhance the danger of developing gum disease consisting of smoking, pregnancy, and diabetes. It is necessary to visit your dentist if you think you have gum disease because the sooner you treat it the better.
The early stage of gum disease is called gingivitis. If you have gingivitis, your gums might end up being red, swollen and bleed easily. At this stage, 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 may become more severe with time. If it does, your teeth will feel loose and start moving around in your mouth. It normally worsens 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. Typical features include rapid loss of bone and tissue and might 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 studies suggest that extreme periodontal disease may be associated with numerous other health conditions such as stroke or diabetes.
Regular dental checkups and periodontal examinations are very important. The treatment techniques that most dental practitioners diagnose will rely on the type of disease and how far the condition has actually progressed. Good dental care in your home is essential to help keep periodontal disease from ending up being more severe or recurring.
