Gum Disease (Periodontal Disease)
Gum disease is an infection of the tissues that surround and support your teeth. Because gum disease is typically painless, 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 indicate a problem:
- gums that bleed too quickly.
- red, inflamed, sore gums.
- gums that have retreated from the teeth.
- consistent 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 change in the fit of partial dentures.
There are many factors that enhance the danger of developing gum disease including smoking, pregnancy, and diabetes. It is 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 easily. At this phase, 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 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 in time. If it does, your teeth will feel loose and start moving around in your mouth. It generally worsens slowly, however there can be periods of rapid progression.
Aggressive periodontitis is a highly damaging type of gum disease that occurs in patients who are otherwise healthy. Typical features consist of 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 research studies suggest that extreme gum disease may be connected with numerous other health conditions such as stroke or diabetes.
Routine dental appointments and periodontal examinations are essential. The treatment methods that most dental practitioners diagnose will depend upon the kind of disease and how far the condition has advanced. Great dental care at home is important to help keep periodontal disease from ending up being more severe or recurring.
