Gum Disease (Periodontal Disease)
Gum disease is an infection of the tissues that surround and support your teeth. Since gum disease is typically pain-free, you might not know you have it. Also called periodontal disease, gum disease is caused by plaque, the sticky film of bacteria that is continuously forming on our teeth.
Here are some warning signs that may indicate an issue:
- gums that bleed too quickly.
- red, inflamed, sore 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 many factors that increase the danger of developing gum disease consisting of smoking cigarettes, pregnancy, and diabetes. It is essential to visit your dentist if you presume you have gum disease because the faster 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 normally 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 cause 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 begin moving around in your mouth. It normally becomes worse slowly, however there can be periods of fast progression.
Aggressive periodontitis is a highly damaging type of periodontal disease that happens in patients who are otherwise healthy. Typical features consist of rapid loss of bone and tissue and may 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 extreme gum disease may be associated with multiple other health conditions such as stroke or diabetes.
Regular dental examinations and gum examinations are extremely important. The treatment techniques that most dental professionals diagnose will depend upon the kind of disease and how far the condition has advanced. Great dental care at home is vital to help keep gum disease from ending up being more serious or recurring.
