Gum Disease (Periodontal Disease)
Gum disease is an infection of the tissues that surround and support your teeth. Since 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 germs that is constantly forming on our teeth.
Here are some warning signs that may signal an issue:
- gums that bleed easily.
- red, swollen, sore gums.
- gums that have actually 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 numerous aspects that increase the risk of developing gum disease consisting of smoking, pregnancy, and diabetes. It is very important to go to 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 may end up being red, swollen and bleed quickly. At this phase, the disease is still reversible and can normally 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 result in the loss of bone and tissue that support the teeth and it may become more severe over time. If it does, your teeth will feel loose and start moving around in your mouth. It usually becomes worse slowly, however there can be periods of fast progression.
Aggressive periodontitis is a highly damaging type of gum disease that happens in patients who are otherwise healthy. Common features include 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 multiple other health conditions such as stroke or diabetes.
Routine dental appointments and periodontal examinations are extremely important. The treatment methods that most dental professionals diagnose will rely on the kind of disease and how far the condition has progressed. Excellent dental care in your home is essential to help keep gum disease from ending up being more severe or recurring.
