Gum Disease (Periodontal Disease)
Gum disease is an infection of the tissues that surround and support your teeth. Because gum disease is generally pain-free, you might not know you have it. Also referred to as periodontal disease, gum disease is caused by plaque, the sticky film of bacteria that is continuously forming on our teeth.
Here are couple warning signs that can indicate a problem:
- gums that bleed too quickly.
- 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 increase the risk of establishing gum disease including smoking, pregnancy, and diabetes. It is essential to go to 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 may end up being red, inflamed and bleed easily. At this stage, the disease is still fixable and can typically 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 lead to the loss of bone and tissue that support the teeth and it may end up being more extreme in time. If it does, your teeth will feel loose and begin moving around in your mouth. It usually worsens slowly, however there can be periods of fast progression.
Aggressive periodontitis is a highly damaging form of periodontal disease that takes place in patients who are otherwise healthy. Typical features consist of rapid loss of bone and tissue and might 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 indicate that severe periodontal disease may be related to numerous other health conditions such as stroke or diabetes.
Routine dental examinations and gum examinations are crucial. The treatment methods that most dentists diagnose will rely on the kind of disease and how far the condition has progressed. Good dental care in your home is necessary to help keep gum disease from becoming more severe or recurring.
