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 generally 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 continuously forming on our teeth.
Here are 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 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 cigarettes, pregnancy, and diabetes. It is very important to visit your dentist if you suspect 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 might become red, swollen and bleed easily. At this phase, the disease is still fixable and can typically 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 might end up being more serious with time. If it does, your teeth will feel loose and start moving around in your mouth. It generally becomes worse slowly, but there can be periods of fast progression.
Aggressive periodontitis is a highly damaging kind of periodontal 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 between systemic diseases and gum diseases is ongoing. While a link is not conclusive, some research studies show that severe gum disease might be associated with multiple other health conditions such as stroke or diabetes.
Regular dental examinations and periodontal examinations are extremely important. The treatment methods that most dentists diagnose will rely on the type of disease and how far the condition has actually progressed. Excellent dental care at home is vital to help keep gum disease from ending up being more severe or recurring.
