Gum Disease (Periodontal Disease)
Gum disease is an infection of the tissues that surround and support your teeth. Since gum disease is usually pain-free, you might not know you have it. Also called periodontal disease, gum disease is caused by plaque, the sticky film of bacteria that is constantly forming on our teeth.
Here are couple warning signs that may indicate a problem:
- gums that bleed too quickly.
- red, inflamed, sore gums.
- gums that have actually retreated from the teeth.
- consistent bad breath or bad taste.
- permanent teeth that are separating or loose.
- any change in the way your teeth fit together when you bite.
- any change in the fit of partial dentures.
There are many aspects that enhance the danger of establishing gum disease including smoking, pregnancy, and diabetes. It is very important to go to your dentist if you presume 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 become red, swollen and bleed easily. At this stage, the disease is still reversible and can usually 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 cause the loss of bone and tissue that support the teeth and it may end up being more serious in time. If it does, your teeth will feel loose and begin moving around in your mouth. It normally becomes worse slowly, however there can be periods of fast progression.
Aggressive periodontitis is a highly damaging form of gum disease that happens in patients who are otherwise healthy. Common features include rapid loss of bone and tissue and might 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 studies indicate that serious periodontal disease may be associated with numerous other health conditions such as stroke or diabetes.
Routine dental checkups and gum examinations are very important. The treatment methods that most dental practitioners diagnose will rely on the type of disease and how far the condition has progressed. Good dental care in your home is important to help keep periodontal disease from ending up being more severe or recurring.
