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 normally pain-free, you may not know you have it. Also referred to as 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 indicate an issue:
- gums that bleed too quickly.
- red, swollen, sore gums.
- gums that have actually pulled away from the teeth.
- consistent bad 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 lots of factors that enhance the danger of developing gum disease consisting of smoking, pregnancy, and diabetes. It is important 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, swollen and bleed easily. At this stage, the disease is still fixable and can usually be removed by a professional cleaning at your dental office, followed by day-to-day 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 serious over time. If it does, your teeth will feel loose and start moving around in your mouth. It generally becomes worse slowly, however there can be periods of rapid progression.
Aggressive periodontitis is a highly damaging kind of gum disease that takes place in patients who are otherwise healthy. Common features include rapid loss of bone and tissue and may take place in some areas of the mouth, or in the entire mouth.
Research in between systemic diseases and periodontal diseases is ongoing. While a link is not conclusive, some research studies suggest that extreme gum disease might be related to a number of other health conditions such as stroke or diabetes.
Routine dental examinations and periodontal examinations are extremely important. The treatment methods that most dentists diagnose will rely on the kind of disease and how far the condition has advanced. Good dental care in your home is vital to help keep periodontal disease from ending up being more severe or recurring.
