Gum Disease (Periodontal Disease)
Gum disease is an infection of the tissues that surround and support your teeth. Because gum disease is usually 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 some warning signs that may indicate an issue:
- gums that bleed too quickly.
- red, inflamed, tender gums.
- gums that have pulled away 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 difference in the fit of partial dentures.
There are many factors that increase the danger of establishing gum disease consisting of smoking cigarettes, pregnancy, and diabetes. It is 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 might become red, inflamed and bleed quickly. At this stage, the disease is still reversible and can usually be removed by a professional cleaning at your dental office, followed by everyday 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 extreme over time. If it does, your teeth will feel loose and begin moving around in your mouth. It normally becomes worse slowly, however there can be periods of rapid progression.
Aggressive periodontitis is a highly damaging kind of gum disease that happens 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 gum diseases is ongoing. While a link is not conclusive, some studies indicate that extreme periodontal disease may be related to multiple other health conditions such as stroke or diabetes.
Regular dental examinations and periodontal examinations are very important. The treatment methods that most dental practitioners diagnose will rely on the type of disease and how far the condition has actually progressed. Good dental care at home is essential to help keep gum disease from ending up being more severe or recurring.
