Gum Disease (Periodontal Disease)
Gum disease is an infection of the tissues that surround and support your teeth. Because gum disease is generally painless, you may not know you have it. Also called periodontal disease, gum disease is caused by plaque, the sticky film of germs that is constantly forming on our teeth.
Here are couple warning signs that may indicate an issue:
- gums that bleed easily.
- 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 risk of establishing gum disease including smoking cigarettes, pregnancy, and diabetes. It is important to visit your dentist if you think you have gum disease because the quicker you treat it the better.
The early stage of gum disease is called gingivitis. If you have gingivitis, your gums might end up being red, inflamed and bleed quickly. 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 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 with time. If it does, your teeth will feel loose and start moving around in your mouth. It normally worsens slowly, but there can be periods of fast progression.
Aggressive periodontitis is a highly destructive form of gum disease that happens in patients who are otherwise healthy. Typical features include rapid loss of bone and tissue and might take place in some areas of the mouth, or in the entire mouth.
Research in between systemic diseases and periodontal diseases is ongoing. While a link is not conclusive, some research studies indicate that serious periodontal disease might be associated with multiple other health conditions such as stroke or diabetes.
Routine dental checkups and periodontal examinations are very important. The treatment methods that most dentists diagnose will rely on the kind of disease and how far the condition has progressed. Great dental care at home is necessary to help keep gum disease from ending up being more severe or recurring.
