Gum Disease (Periodontal Disease)
Gum disease is an infection of the tissues that surround and support your teeth. Because gum disease is normally pain-free, 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 some warning signs that may indicate an issue:
- gums that bleed too quickly.
- red, inflamed, tender gums.
- gums that have actually retreated from the teeth.
- consistent foul breath or bad taste.
- permanent teeth that are separating or loose.
- any change in the way your teeth fit together when you bite.
- any difference in the fit of partial dentures.
There are many aspects that increase the risk of developing gum disease including smoking, pregnancy, and diabetes. It is essential to go to your dentist if you presume you have gum disease because the sooner 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 stage, the disease is still fixable and can normally be removed by a professional cleaning at your dental office, followed by daily 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 might become more serious with time. If it does, your teeth will feel loose and start moving around in your mouth. It usually worsens slowly, however 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. Common 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 gum diseases is ongoing. While a link is not conclusive, some studies show that severe gum disease may be related to a number of other health conditions such as stroke or diabetes.
Regular dental appointments and gum examinations are extremely important. The treatment techniques that most dental experts diagnose will depend upon the type of disease and how far the condition has progressed. Good dental care in your home is essential to help keep periodontal disease from ending up being more severe or recurring.
