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 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 constantly forming on our teeth.
Some warning signs that can indicate an issue:
- gums that bleed too quickly.
- red, inflamed, tender gums.
- gums that have pulled away from the teeth.
- persistent bad 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 enhance the danger of establishing gum disease consisting of smoking cigarettes, pregnancy, and diabetes. It is very important to visit your dentist if you suspect 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 might become red, swollen and bleed quickly. At this phase, the disease is still reversible and can typically be eliminated by a professional cleaning at your dental office, followed by day-to-day 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 severe over time. If it does, your teeth will feel loose and begin moving around in your mouth. It usually gets worse slowly, but 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 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 periodontal diseases is ongoing. While a link is not conclusive, some research studies show that serious gum disease might be related to multiple other health conditions such as stroke or diabetes.
Regular dental checkups and gum examinations are extremely important. The treatment techniques that most dental experts diagnose will rely on the type of disease and how far the condition has advanced. Great dental care at home is essential to help keep periodontal disease from becoming more severe or recurring.
